Clearly Sophisticated

I had Lucite on the brain recently. 

Acrylic furniture, also known as Lucite furniture, is an easy way to punch up a boring room. Not only does it bring a hint of modern to a a very traditional space, it adds a bit of sophistication. Whether it's called Perspex, Plexiglas or Lucite, it's all made from the same material -- acrylic glass. Here are some of my favorite examples.


If you're short on space, a Lucite coffee table will give you the convenience of a coffee table without the visual clutter.






The iconic Ghost Chair. Perfect paired with a traditional desk.


Bar stools provide a great opportunity to use clear acrylic. Smaller condos and apartments don't always provide enough space for a bulky stool. These seem to float.



 These nesting tables provide form and function. They can be nested to take up very little space and brought out when company arrives so everyone has a place to put their food and drink.



 Or choose a two-piece layered look by nesting these tables either behind a sofa or in a foyer.

 


Clear acrylic traditional-styled table and chairs let the large painting take center stage and provide an airy feel.



In a foyer, another example of highlighting the art rather than competing with it.

Another classic, the X-chair. Often seen in wood or upholstered, this is a modern take and would hold your comforter during the night.






If you are short of space in your eat-in kitchen space, this set would fit the bill. Plus they have casters!




I love the pairing of clear acrylic paired with a fluffy flokati or animal hide rug. How sexy is that?
Would you add some Lucite to your living space? Or do you think it's too modern?
