It seems like there’s always some new wacky home decor trend that everyone is participating in. Suddenly you’re seeing it everywhere, and while you may resist at first, you always end up wanting to get in on the fun. Right now, that trend is mushroom home decor.
No, not actual mushrooms to forage or use in your cooking — more like mushroom-inspired home decor. It sounds super quirky, but can actually be quite simple and tasteful depending on your vibe. Mushroom home decor can be functional or purely decorative, designed for outdoor or indoor use, made to illuminate a room or just put on display for a unique conversation starter. No matter what sort of decor you’re looking for, you can probably find something in the mushroom realm that will match your style and meet the needs of your space.
If you’re having trouble picturing what mushroom home decor actually looks like, this list should help clear things up. From the weird and bold to the somewhat subtle, you’ll be dying to have some fungi fun with one of these cool pieces.
1. Mushroom Shaped Vase
BEST FOR FLOWERS
These handmade glass mushroom vases are on the more subtle side of mushroom home decor, but they’re functional and they’ve still got that cute quirky factor. They naturally elevate any sort of floral arrangements with their unique shape and full glass design, allowing you to see all the way down to the stems. It’s a great addition to any room that fits this fun trend without drawing too much attention.
2. Mushroom Lidded Soup Crock
BEST FOR SERVING
You probably never thought to serve soup in a wacky little ceramic mushroom-shaped crock, but it makes the whole experience a lot more fun. It’s another practical way to incorporate mushroom decor into your home, whether you want to keep it out on display or tucked away in the cabinet until it’s time to break out for a meal. Either way, it’ll add a little fungi flare to any table or countertop.
3. Joy Clay Table Lamp
BEST TO ILLUMINATE
If you’re looking for a lamp with some personality, this is a great option. The mushroom silhouette is playful enough to be in a kid’s room but simple enough to add warm, happy vibes to any space. It features a lovely matte pink color, three different levels of brightness and touch controls on the base or shade. It’s also gotten great reviews from customers.
4. Decorative Wooden Mushrooms
BEST FOR DECORATION
These delicate, handcrafted wooden mushrooms make for a cute albeit slightly random addition to your home decor. Mix them in with other decorative pieces on any table, mantle or windowsill to bring a little fun and joy to the room. They’re carved in small quantities by a woodturner in France, so you can be sure that nobody else will have the same ones.
5. Outdoor Solar Garden Lights
BEST FOR OUTDOORS
Mushroom garden decor that’s also energy efficient? Seems like a no-brainer. These solar-powered mushroom lights easily press into the ground and feature a solar panel that absorbs energy from the sun during the day to turn on at dusk and back off at dawn. They’ll illuminate your lawn and also decorate it with cute and colorful mushrooms for some added ambiance.
6. Mushroom Ottoman
BEST FOR SITTING
Some mushroom home decor is actually quite sophisticated, like this customizable shroom ottoman. It can be made in your choice of fabric and color to fit in with the rest of the room, and offer a comfortable and stylish place to put your feet up. It’s definitely a bit more of a splurge, but it’s a great addition to your home that you can appreciate for years to come.
7. Toadstool Salt and Pepper Shakers
BEST FOR SEASONING
These little ceramic toadstool salt and pepper shakers are functional and make a very lively decor addition to your dinner table. They’re handmade and painted with bright colors to make the cute fungi shape even more vibrant. Refill them with your choice of salt and pepper to use for seasoning your meals, or just keep them around the kitchen to make you smile.
8. Mushroom Basket
BEST FOR STORAGE
Mushroom home decor can also serve a purpose, like this natural rattan basket that can be used to store toys, blankets or anything else you like to keep tucked away. The cap pops right off to access the base with a solid amount of storage space, and it adds a playful shroomy vibe to the kid’s room or living area.
9. Set of 2 Mushroom Wall Mirrors
BEST WALL DECOR
These small paper-mache wall mirrors shaped like squat little mushrooms with bright red and white polka dots will brighten up any wall in your home. Mirrors are always trendy as wall decor, and these ones are particularly charming. Of course, they can be used to grab one last glance on your way out the door, but they’re also just fun to have hanging around.
