A few years ago I started noticing these adorable lamps showing up all over my fellow fashion editors’ homes. Fast forward to today, and now glass mushroom lamps are one of the biggest home decor trends embraced by It girls around the world. Essentially it’s a revival of mid-century modern style, specifically Italy’s famed Murano lamps. You can buy them vintage, or secondhand on Etsy as I’ve done in the past, but they come at a pretty penny. Urban Outfitters and West Elm have recently released similar mushroom lamps that capture the same vibe at a fraction of the cost.
I’m simply crazy about weird vases. I’ve documented my love of them here, but if you need more reminding, below are some of the ones currently on my shopping list. Anissa Kermiche’s Love Handles vase is probably one of the most popular; I mean, even Drake and Leandra Cohen own it.
Not all candles should be burned; some are meant to be seen. Works of art in their own right, use them to adorn a coffee table or wall shelves to inject some personality into your space.
Most people may consider mirrors as wholly utilitarian–simply to check for smeared lipstick or to make sure no unidentified stains have made their way to your pants–but for fashion people, a mirror is a statement. When you’re constantly snapping outfit photos for the ‘gram, not just any mirror will do, you need one with wow factor. Bi-Rite Studio’s Capsule Mirror has a cult following in the design world, but if you’re on a budget, you can catch a few options from Cb2 on sale.
As the centerpiece of a living room, coffee tables truly set the tone for the rest of your space. A design-forward one will stand out–even if the rest of your other furniture leans minimal. In the vein of the mid-century modern craze, chrome coffee tables in particular are on the rise.
I consider a good rug one of the most important decor investments to make, which may be partly why half of my saved folder right now is full of them. You may already be familiar with Cold Picnic’s abstract rugs (they’re a favorite among design junkies), and after owning two I can say they’re worth every penny. If you’re looking for something a little more dramatic, checkered rugs are surprisingly versatile.
