From Caprani to Mushroom: Lamps Are the Trending Décor Piece You Didn't Know You Needed

Combining form and function, lamps are the high-impact home décor piece du jour. Lightweight paper lanterns do the trick and the $25 IKEA Fado lamp might be the Swedish multinational's all-time best product, but we believe the trending designs that are inspiring us on Instagram are worth a second look.

From rare antiques to artisan-made one-offs, here are just some of the trending décor pieces that will inspire you to fill the lamp-shaped hole you didn't know you had.

Caprani

The pièce de résistance of Danish design, Caprani lamps are highly coveted antiques in the realm of vintage minimalism. With an accordion-pleat linen shade, bentwood stand and cast-iron base, this lyrical floor lamp is an aspiration worth pursuing in earnest.

Mushroom

Another vintage trend, the fungi-inspired design dates back to the '50s but made really made it big in the '70s before exploding with popularity on social media another few decades later. Named for its mushroom shape, from the iconic Atollo lamp designed in 1977 by Italian industrial designer Vico Magistretti to the whimsical Murano mushrooms offered on Etsy and beyond.

Sculptural

Ceramics are trending, and with good reason. Handmade ceramics bring a tactile, personal, artisan touch to any home, and a unique ceramic lamp base makes the perfect functional art object. We are forever obsessed with Sophie Davies Twister lamps.

Murano Glass

It is believed that this special type of glass has been made for more than 1500 years on the Venetian island of Murano in northern Italy. Sometimes referred to as Venetian glass, Murano glass is different from the glass you'd find in windows and is made using silica, soda, lime and potassium melted together in a special furnace, with precious metals and minerals added in to give it a unique vibrancy.

Pleated

Whether real vintage or vintage-inspired, the pleated lampshade is a nostalgic nod to decades past and a wonderful way to elevate any room's aesthetic. A textural update to drum-shape lamps that dominated late '90s and early '00s, we love pleated shades in neutral tones paired with glass or wrought iron base.

Orb

From the Dioscuri wall/ceiling light to the aforementioned IKEA Fado table lamp, the simplicity and versatility of a warm-toned light bulb housed in a glass orb is an enduring trend that stands the test of time. For a more inspired use of spherical glass shades, the Moda Piera Arancini lamps are always a powerful addition to any stylish space.

Chubby

This playful trend doesn't just apply to furniture. Chubby lamps are another full-figured trend that people are loving right now. Best in high-gloss class or painted ceramics, we especially love a brightly coloured chubby lamp.
