This is the area where you can really make a statement with lamps. I find that square lampshades, or round lampshades that are 14 inches or less in diameter, work best against a wall.
A pendant works just as well as a chandelier visually. The light wattage is lower, though, so I suggest using a pendant light in combination with can lighting. Stacked books look great with their colorful binding facing the room and are also good for elevating alarm clocks.
Consider a wall-mounted table for the tiniest of spaces. There's just enough room for an adjustable lamp, art and an alarm clock.
