Inflatable furniture, graphic prints, oversize everything—the ’90s are back in full force. But before you have shudder-inducing flashbacks of glow-in-the-dark posters taped to your wall, hear us out. Walmart’s summer lookbook features nostalgic finds that are all grown up, channeling the decade’s carefree energy without the cringe factor. So what does that look like? Plush furniture, iridescent accents, and a smattering of now-iconic novelty items like lava lamps. Plus each one clocks in under $90. Coincidence? We think not. We’ve got it all dialed up for you, below.
Feel the Warm-and-Fuzzies
Beanbags were the decor staple of the ’90s, but this cozy iteration is structured so you don’t just sink to the ground (not fun as an adult). Plus it’s covered in white shag fur for an extra-plush and inviting texture.
Show Off Your Inner Glow
If you’ve never experienced the joys of a lava lamp, now is the time. Futuristic and nostalgic all at once, this $15 option is set in a calming cyan hue. It’s a captivating accent for an office, a side table, or a child’s room—especially alongside polar-opposite materials like natural wood, linen, and marble.
One plant trend that’s already returned from the ’90s? Faux greenery. So skip the upkeep and treat yourself to a galvanized-finish container of lush ivy. The color variation and creeping tendrils will trick people into thinking it’s real.
Keep It Light
The grown-up version of glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling is this set of 20 indoor-outdoor incandescent string lights made with clear café bulbs to provide a soft glow wherever you choose to hang them. If you want to get extra vibe-y, you can connect multiple 11-foot strings together to cover more square footage.
Skirt the Issue
Skirted accents are currently making a comeback under kitchen sinks and as part of cottagecore bed setups. This white ruffled bed skirt is complete with intricate eyelet embroidery and scalloped edges for a dreamy look that also happens to hide anything you want to store underneath.
Unleash Your Wild Side
Every ’90s maximalist room had some sort of animal print peppered in. For a subtler take, consolidate the pattern to your bathroom with this three-piece towel set. In a neutral colorway, it strikes the perfect balance of playful and pared back.
