If you’re looking for decor pieces that blend classic designs with bold and bright maximalism, then you’re going to want to hit your local Target store this week. The store recently introduced an ambient glow light that embraces multiple trendy designs — and it’s only $20.

Target’s Checkered Ambient Globe Light hails from the brand’s Room Essentials line, which offers everyday bedroom staples with a stylish twist. This item is no exception; it features a spherical glass shade atop a ceramic base with a checkered pattern that is available in green and white, black and white, and peach and white color pathways. The lamp’s one-way light setting and inline rocker switch allows you to easily switch the light on, whether you decide to put it by your bedside table, your work desk, or anywhere else in your space.

Part of the lamp’s appeal is its embrace of several enduringly popular design trends. It’s a globe light, which marries modern minimalism with a timeless, classic design. Plus, its checkerboard base makes it an easy way to add the ever-popular checkerboard pattern to your space. At once contemporary and classic, it’s one of the few trendy patterns that mixes and layers well with bolder, busier prints.

The checkerboard pattern’s neutrality makes it a great fit for lovers of maximalist decor. If you already have plenty of color and pattern going on in your space, you can count on the lamp to add some visual intrigue to any room without making your home’s overall design feel too overstimulating. Plus, the ambient light will provide some brightness in a room without being too overwhelming. In fact, the right lighting can help with sleep and your mood, so this product can do just that with lots of style.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy some trendy ambient lighting!
