I love lucite! Or acrylic, or any other transparent plastic. Lucite furniture can look great in any style or setting – it does not have to be modern. But it should only be used in small doses! One piece of lucite per room. Like so:

Melissa Rufty. I love that banquette!

A piece of lucite furniture is a great way to mix up the style of a room. Sometimes too much traditional furniture can get a little fussy. Lucite adds a touch of modern, which makes a room look updated. Clear furniture is visually light, which is great for smaller rooms instead of using a big chunky wooden or upholstered piece of furniture. It makes small rooms feel more open.
A few of my favorite lucite pieces of furniture:
First up is Jonathan Adler’s gorgeous Bond console. It will cost you an arm and a leg…
On the other hand, Wisteria has this pretty glass desk for $499.
Wisteria also has a few other acrylic/lucite/glass pieces. Like this square acrylic coffee table .
Or my personal favorite is the acrylic leaning bookshelves:
Hickory Chair’s Crystal Side Table
Check out these acrylic barstools from SEARS for just $209 each!
Then there is the famous Louis Ghost chair. My mom has one at her house and I LOVE it. Perfect for a desk or occasional chair. I just love it! It’s classic.
And last but not least… I recently saw this lucite DOG BED with the Brunschwig & Fils animal print fabric on Elements of Style blog. I’m not sure what crazy person came up with this, but whoever sleeps here is one chic pooch!
