If you’ve been on TikTok lately, you’ve definitely seen the backlash against “the big light”—aka harsh overhead room lighting. Instead of relying on bright fluorescent lights, users have been opting for moody-colored lighting or numerous lamps to illuminate their homes. This results in a warm, subtle glow rather than harsh rays from an overhead light.

No matter how you personally feel about overhead lighting, the trend definitely (ahem) highlights how fun it can be to add pops of color to your space by way of chic, stylish lamps. We’ve gone ahead and rounded up some of the best options out there to suit any decor scheme or personal style preferences—you’ll love the glow of something a little less stark than what’s currently situated over your head.
