Swirly Pearl Mushroom Lamp from Urban Outfitters

I can’t be the only one who loves when objects from the past come back on the home decor scene. Over the last few months, one mid-century lighting icon has made a strong resurgence: the mushroom lamp. These weird little lamps—not to be confused with metal domed lamps that are sometimes also called mushroom lamps—scream AT’s Bazaar for these guys, too—Murano mushrooms pop up there every now and again.

Leave it to IKEA to make something cute that’s also super affordable. The IKEA HÖSTFEST lamp is battery-operated, LED-equipped, and will work indoors or out. It’s a petite 6 inches tall, so it will look great on even the smallest of bedside tables. The best part? No messy cords to hide!

Ansel Table Lamp 

Is it just me or does it feel like all of the “cool” people on Instagram have the Ansel Table Lamp from Urban? I won’t lie—I’ve had it saved in my cart for a minute now. The swirls in this lamp’s glass make it a pretty close dupe to an original Murano. It comes in three different colors, and I love the airy look of the version with touches of blue, brown, and terracotta.

ET2 Specialty Table Lamp 

With its blue shade and matte white base, this glass lamp, which is just under a foot tall, has major retro vibes that feel right out of “Super Mario Brothers.” A pair would be super cute on a console in a colorful living room or on a table in a kids’ play area. There’s also a similar all-white style available if you want something a little more neutral.

Ribbed Glass Accent Lamp 

West Elm does mid-century modern perfectly, so it’s no surprise the retailer also has its own version of this fun fixture. The Ribbed Glass Accent Lamp is contract-grade, which means it’s made for commercial applications and built to last. This piece is actually part of a collection and is available as a flush mount, sconce, and pendant, too.

Glass Mushroom Lamp

Of course, there’s always vintage! Reproductions are nothing new, so if you’re looking for an authentic Murano lamp, keep an eye out on Etsy. The swirliest, most colorful styles are pretty expensive, but you can find more basic solid glass models for a little less.
