lighting circuit


I am trying to find out if what i want to do is possible?
I would like to be alble to control two lights independently and together from two locations for example: two lights above my bed on each side of the bed, would like to have a switch on each side of the bed and be able to have either both lights on or one side or the other on. I hope this makes sense.

You will need two switches on each side of the bed, one for each light.

Just so I have the logic straight, switch #1 controls light #1, switch #2 controls light #2, and switch #1 has no control over light #2 and vice versa?

You would need two switches on each side of the bed each one a 3 way switch. Of course you would need to turn on each switch to turn on both lights but who cares they are right next to each other.
