Lucite

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:

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!
