Shining a Light On the Mini Lamp Trend
Friday Mar 8 2024

These lamps may be mini, but their impact is mega! No wonder they’re a big trend in home décor at the moment. For starters, the accent lighting a smaller lamp provides immediately softens the overall mood, making it a frequent go-to choice over “big lights.” In other words, if cozy is your vibe, this is the light to try. Better yet, add several smaller lamps throughout a room and watch how the space warms right up.

Of course, we can’t ignore the fact that small lamps are also loaded with design potential. Let’s explore a few of our favorite ways to style these trendy fixtures.

1. On a Kitchen or Bathroom Counter

We all know that custom cabinet lighting is popular. If you have an older home or don't have the budget for custom lit cabinets, add a mini lamp. Because of their petite size, they tend to fit nicely below upper cabinets.

2. On a Shelf

Again, because of their low profile, smaller lamps tend to sit securely on shelving. This can be in built-ins, open kitchen shelves, or an etagere.

3. On a Small Table or Console

Think that accent table or console is too small for a lamp? Enter the mini lamp! Thanks to these mini-but-mighty lights, you can now illuminate so many areas. At The Black Goose Design, we like any opportunity to add accent lighting, and a mini lamp is a great way to help fill negative space.

4. Add It to a Stack

A fun way to style a mini lamp is to place it on a stack of books. This is a quick trick to add more height if your display is feeling to level.
