After getting our first look at Anthropologie‘s spring 2023 home collection, there were a few standout designs that took us by surprise, like velvety-smooth upholstered…lamps and mirrors? After combing through hundreds of new products featuring the retailer’s more expected neutral hues and bespoke details, we can easily visualize how these more unexpected styles wield the potential to completely revitalize a space—and not just for spring but for the yearlong haul. Picture sofas accented with butter yellow bouclé stripes, sculpturesque rugs, maximalist dessert plates, and accent chairs boasting Marcello Velho–embroidered art. Out of all the aesthete-inclined offerings (some of which are already on back order, gah), we’ve lined up the most electrifying of our favorites, below.
Sculptural silhouettes, upholstered touches, and burl-wood elements to the forefront, please. Who knew we needed an upholstered floor lamp, finished in pink or green cotton velvet? The Lulu floor lamp fills a hole in our hearts. The dreamy Bridgett accent chair also beautifully offsets its relaxing upholstery with a surprisingly unique frame featuring hidden legs and a deep, lounge-worthy seat.
Colorful linen, but frame it as a table lamp. Nubby stripes, but put it on a sofa. The bright and cheerful hues in this group are inspiring and add layers to an interior. Plus if there’s a Marcello Velho x Anthropologie collaboration, you’ll find us hovering somewhere in the vicinity. The graphic artist’s boldly colorful and abstract works are interior catnip when applied to a staple furniture piece—like this classic armchair, upholstered in a cotton-linen blend and whimsically crewel-embroidered with Velho’s signature designs.

If you have any doubts that open shelving isn’t worth the dusting, Anthropologie’s Maderas bookshelf by Masaya & Co. might make you reconsider. In addition to its understated elegance, the handcrafted piece is made from sustainably sourced teakwood and features five segmented shelves that won’t be quickly overshadowed by baubles, books, or plants.
