An accent lamp is so much more than just a mere light source. While finding a good one isn’t the challenge, finding a lamp that combines the current trend while remaining within your budget becomes the real dilemma. There’s definitely a fine line between staying trendy with the hottest new interior accents and paying the electricity bill.
Because let’s face it, the cutest things in life are usually the most expensive — and trendy lamps are no exception. In 2023, moody colors and accents from the ’60s and ’70 are bringing a nostalgic vibe to décor styles. According to interior designers at Havenly, “Art deco opulence in the form of ornate woodwork, rich wood tones, and even grandiose window treatments are up and coming.”
To incorporate this revisited midcentury aesthetic that features sharp lines and geometric shapes into your home, start with cheap accent lamps (that don’t look like cheap accent lamps). And we’ve found the cutest ones to shop right now:
