While sourcing lighting for our cabin, I’ve been focusing on finding pieces that are either vintage, thrifted, or vintage in feel. To me, it’s important for this home to have a more eclectic, curated look than our last home. Because of that, I feel like I’m so much more aware of how lighting trends ebb and flow… and then ultimately come back. A good example of that is the mushroom lamp trend that is popping up now (pun very much intended). I absolutely love the tortoise version I sourced from Urban Outfitters, but have been eying a few other of these diminutive cuties to sprinkle throughout our home. Here are a few faves that I’m loving right now in case you’d like to add one or two to your home!

What is a mushroom lamp?

First things first, you’re probably wondering what on earth constitutes a mushroom lamp. This style truly speaks to 1970s style, but with some quirkiness. Basically, the lamp is mushroom-shaped with it’s nipped in waist and curvy top and bottom. Sometimes the bottom is curvier and sometimes the top is. Typically, they are made of glass and the absolute best vintage ones are made of Murano glass. Those beauties can run upwards of $500 sometimes!

These funghi-inspired table lamps often have really amazing glass so that they cast gorgeous shadows. From swirls to confetti dots to ombréd color, there are so many options! I’ve also found that these charming accent lights are smaller in size, making them perfect for illuminating an awkward corner. I love them on tiny side tables, a nightstand, or even a desk.

The Best Flush Mount Lighting

Probably because as a small space dweller, we don’t have the ceiling height needed for a big, dramatic chandelier or pendant! There are so many options out there, but on the flip side, there are some terrible options, too (hello, boob light). Because I can’t be in your home picking out the perfect fixture for your space (totally wish I could though), this is a list organized by finish.
