Lucite furnishings have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Lucite is basically a clear acrylic, and many types of furnishings and accessories are made from it.
Lucite has many desirable attributes from a design perspective. Because it is clear, it acts like a neutral color—it matches everything. It takes up very little visual space, which makes it perfect for small rooms and apartments, and, although it is modern, it works really well in traditional interiors. Lucite adds a touch of glamour and elegance to a space.
Here are my favorite ways to use lucite furnishings:
I like how unobtrusive these lucite console tables are. They make a space look light, bright, and uncluttered.
Don’t these lucite coffee tables work beautifully in the traditional-style rooms above?
In the offices above, the lucite desk, chair and bookcases lend lightness and modernity to the work spaces.
Kitchen and Dining Seating:
I like the mix of the modern lucite dining chairs with the traditional farmhouse tables. The lucite adds an element of surprise and chicness to the dining spaces
One of these lucite bar carts would bring a modern glam vibe to your space.
As versatile and appealing as lucite may be, I would caution you against going overboard with lucite furniture in your home. Think of lucite like a piece of statement jewelry—in most cases, one piece is all you need!
What do you think of lucite? Would you try it in your home?
