Every now and then, a collection comes out that’s so good that interior designers change their homes overnight. The latest line to throw the design world into a redecorating frenzy? Leanne Ford x Target.

It’s a well-known fact that HGTV veteran Leanne Ford has a talented eye for picking out lighting. We’ve seen the Los Angeles–based designer’s penchant for vintage basket fixtures and industrial pendants take shape in her client’s homes and her own farmhouse. Now Ford’s vivid imagination is taking shape in our own homes—all thanks to her fresh lighting collection for Target’s in-house home brand, Project62. But we aren’t the only ones eating it up.

Interior designers, stylists, DIY bloggers, photographers, and everyone in-between is shining and bright light on their spaces with Ford’s wallet-friendly lineup of woven floor lamps, metal dome pendants, and industrial brass sconces. Now that we’ve topped off our shopping cart, we’re soaking in all the styling inspiration we can get. Here are 10 genius ways the pros are incorporating their favorite fixtures at home and how to get the look.

The Mixed-Material Reading Nook

Operation cozy. If only I looked this put together and sexy in the cold weather. Over in my stories I’m talking about how I turn into a complete hobo (is that a PC term to use?! ) 😬during the cold winter months. No leg shaving, toe nails are a mess, minimal hair washing and layers upon layers of big, loose fitting, mismatched, unattractive loungewear. Oh and let’s not forget the big grandpa socks that are two sizes too big for my feet. Anyone else?! Double tap ❤️ if you’re with me! . . . . #smmakelifebeautiful #hyggehome #interior123 #inmydomaine #sodomino #apartmenttherapy #houseandhome #mybhghome #howyouhome #blackwhiteandwood #howwedwell #livingroomstyle #makehomeyours

Cue, “operation cozy.” In her San Diego home, interior designer Michelle Janeen parked her metal dome floor lamp next to a simple armchair by the window. Between the whitewashed brick fireplace, the warm wood side table, and the jute area rug, the splash of matte black feels fresh and inviting—the perfect recipe for an afternoon reading sesh.

Styling lesson: Mixing materials makes industrial fixtures feel less cold.

The Living Room Lounger

When your walls match your dog. 😂 I didn’t even see Sam when I snapped this pic! Such a creeper. Just wanted to show you the result of my painting last weekend. I used Snow Day by @clarepaint on the walls and we love it! I’ll never forget the name thanks to the 50 some inches of snow out my front door. I can’t say enough good things about @clarepaint. The quality, coverage and colors are the best. I’m going to use it every chance I get! Have a great weekend, everyone! • •Living room sources are in my highlights • • • • • • • • • #BHGhome #verandamag #ambularinteriorsaintgotnothingonme #ehdweekendmakeover #lonnymag #anthrohome #livecolorfully #abmathome #nordikspace #currenthomeview #kinfolkliving #smmakelifebeautiful #abmathome #beckiowensfeature #bloglovinhome #mycovetedhome #homeenvy #designgoals #cornerofmyhome #interiorinspo #everdayibt #designblogger #eclecticstyle #interiorstylist #southernlivingmag #magnolia #myhomevibe #makehomeyours #homeandgarden

DIY’er Megan Schlachtenhaufen can curate a layered space with her eyes closed. In her Wisconsin farmhouse, the blogger strikes a visually alluring balance by mixing and matching various design styles in one single space. In this case, the same floor lamp in Janeen’s home takes on a more contemporary tone thanks to the like-minded chandelier that looms above.    

Styling lesson: Boho, mid-century, and contemporary can exist seamlessly in the same room when you mimic the concept elsewhere.

The Organic Modern Dining Room

Looking forward for dinner hangs with people I love this evening!

Ford’s natural woven pendant light appears as though it was made with Latisha Carlson’s Albuquerque dining room in mind. The photographer-cum-stylist’s wishbone chairs and live-edge wood table pick up on the fixture’s subtle organic beauty.

Styling lesson: Struggling to find cohesion? Go “monochrome” by committing to a unified textural scheme.

The Very Zen Bedroom

Leave it to Victoria Smith of SF Girl by Bay to show us how a personal oasis is done. The moody glow that the perforated floor lamp emits elevates the art and furniture that surrounds it.

Styling lesson: All you need to designate a separate lounge space in a bedroom is a small armchair and an eye-catching standing lamp.

The Whimsical Media Room

In Jen Streeter’s Indiana home, Ford’s popular basket light found a cozy home in her open and airy living room. String lights, a swing chair, and a disco ball take the farmhouse-inspired fixture to a playful level.

Styling lesson: If you have an older home, a white painted light fixture will pop against older details like wood ceiling beams.

The Minimalist Dining Room

Portland-based photographer Paige Jones made her basket fixture the star of the show of her dining room by letting its eye-catching silhouette speak for itself. Like Streeter’s home, the netted piece does the room’s character justice.

Styling lesson: Still not over shiplap? For a fresh take on the tried-and-true trend, introduce natural wovens and smooth-edged silhouettes to the space.

The Artful Corner

Bobby Berk’s creative director, designer and prop stylist Brady Tolbert used his black metal dome table lamp as a new way to shine a light on some of the more soulful objects in his bedroom—like the Pierre Jeanneret chair and a small gallery wall.

Styling lesson: You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a room feel more expensive. Instead of only shopping vintage, play a game of high and low by setting your most affordable pieces alongside your big splurge items.

The Parisian Chic Entry

I’ve wanted to change up my entry for some time and had several ideas, but I’m so glad it turned out like this! @hartman_haus wanted a project, and I had one to do! I’m so glad I’ll get to say that THE Jessica Hartman styled a space in my home when she’s uber famous! If you need help styling your home, she’s your girl! She was so fun to work with, incorporated several pieces I already owned, and listened to my desires while staying totally true to her design aesthetic! She totally rocked it out and worked her little fanny off! This has inspired me to change other spaces in my home! Are there any particular spaces in your home that you would like to change up?. . . . . . . . #ispyraddesign #entry #details #theeverygirlathome #sodomino #simplystyleyourspace #scandiboho #home #mydomaine #apartmenttherapy #smallspaces #bohemianhome #hometohave #heyhomehey #currenthomeview #smmakelifebeautiful #howwedwell #mybohoabode #lookatmeeclecticleigh #stellarspaces #doingneutralright #myhygeehome #colorblocking #hunkerhome #hgtvrenovation #cornerofmyhome #peepmypad #makingmyhaven #storymesocial

Talk about a warm welcome home. Kaylee Sossamon of House of Soss crafted the ultimate foyer by mellowing out her two-toned walls with abstract prints and woven accents.

Styling lesson: Make a long console table feel less lonely and more curated by playing around with pairs. Sossamon pulled this off with art and lighting.

The Cali-Cool Hallway

SoCal interior designer Carol Estes went for a beachy-vintage look in her hallway by topping a washed wood console table with a small but mighty woven lamp. The moody abstract painting, the stack of books, and the skateboards below double as visual bookends for the ultra-chic vignette.

Styling lesson: As an aesthetic, California-cool encourages a sense of casualness. The irregular shape of the oblong table lamp pulls that off.

The Scandinavian-Inspired Seat

The snowy scene outside Toronto-based realtor Audrey Larter’s abode serves as a chilly backdrop for this coastal-cool floor lamp. With Hans Wegner’s Flag chair at its side, this living room moment proves that Scandi and boho are more alike than we thought.

Styling lesson: Don’t let your environment determine your design aesthetic.
