We’ve always considered the disco ball much more than an objet d’art. It’s a statement piece that’s not only beautiful on its own, but recalls glamorous nights of the ‘70’s, when platforms were high, hair was huge, and one could always count on some Saturday night fever. These days the revolving centerpiece to the disco stage has inspired many a groovy interior and object, a look achieved by covering basic elements with those chic tiny mirrored squares. Here are our favorite recent examples of design that follows the call of the disco ball—shedding bright, refracted light as well in the home as on those nights of boogieing down.

A disco remix of the popular (and some would say oversaturated) trophy head element in design, these deer are a fresh take on the look.
