No chance! Either is no bedside table there or the space on it is needed differently.

But to connect a wall lamp or a hanging lamp? If I can not, I do not want to, I’m not allowed to do that (because it’s a student flat, for example) or maybe it’s not possible.

Ideal is one Socket light in about 60-70 cm height and in good reach for the arm or one Clamping light at the same height and with a switch that is also good for the arm.
