We’ve all heard that statement lighting has the power to change the look of a room without costing you a small fortune. But do you go with sculptural LED tubes or an oversize brass dome (remember Leanne Ford’s first Target collection?)—or something else entirely? Etsy’s new 2022 trends report is helping us narrow down our options. With a 344 percent increase in searches in the past three months, compared to the same time last year, 1970s lighting is making a comeback. 

Curvy silhouettes in punchy hues (think: tiger orange and marigold) or, on the other end of the spectrum, soothing browns make for a versatile addition to an all-white space, while the era’s tinted glass sets a moody atmosphere. In search of that perfect nostalgic touch, we scoured Etsy for its best vintage picks.

The Groovy Neutrals

When in doubt, hunt for pieces that look like they belong in the home of a very chic elf or a space shuttle. A mushroom-shaped shade instantly makes a traditional side table or empty living room corner fun(gi).

The Far-Out Finds

Give your entryway art gallery–worthy vibes with a Brutalist neon yellow sconce, or channel a chic Danish restaurant and swag an Yves Klein Blue pendant lamp over the breakfast table.
