I have two bedrooms with very similar arrangement of wall plugs, night stands, lamps, etc. One has EF readings near the bed pillows of around 55V/m and the other has EF readings of around 5V/m near the bed pillows! Lamps and clocks are the same. Could it be that the lower EF bedroom is wired with 3 wire plugs (ground wire) and the higher EF room is wired with 2 wire plugs (no ground wire)? I rotated the EMF-390 meter and the above readings are the highest identified for both locations.

Hi Lauerkj, those are mostly static EF from the lamp. The lamp has very high EF and can polarize objects around it. Grounding also is better. But <100V/m in static EF is not necessarily bad since they are mostly static.
