Lucite is THE white hot decor star of the moment. Clear, glamorous, sturdy and a real decorating chameleon! It is versatile, does not take up visual space and works with so many different decor styles. Did you know that it is really a classic? It has cycled in and out of favor for years and is back again in a huge way! It is coveted for it’s hard finish and crystal clear look. Lucite (a brand name of acrylic) should not be overlook! A little lucite in your decor is a very beautiful thing!
Born 80 years ago, acrylic is a product made from natural gas. It is inert and has no harmful fumes. It’s a wonderful product that became popular for jewelry, handbags, furniture and airplane windshields during WWII.
I love love love acrylic furniture! And I’ve had my eye out for a couple of gorgeous pieces to add to the decor here at StoneGable.
What I find so amazing about acrylic is it’s ability to NOT take up visual space! It is an illusionist! It make a room look more spacious! Being transparent, this gorgeous clear product does not crowd a room! An acrylic table or chair literally lets everything in the room shine through it!
Lucite adds a gigantic punch of sophistication and class! It’s lines are usually unfussy and straightforward often leaning a bit to the modern side of decor! But don’t let that fool you! Lucite mixes so well with many styles!
You should give acrylic furnishings a first or second look. A great piece could breathe fresh new life into a room in your home!
Lucite, like most furniture, can have many price points. Look for a clear acrylic, no scratches and most importantly sturdy construction. Flimsy acrylic furniture signifies poor quality.
Look at the beautiful construction of the acrylic nesting tables I recently purchased. SIGH!
I was thrilled that I found these amazing stacking tables at… WORLD MARKET! Yes, World Market!
They carry so many fabulous, global furnishing and decor! I spent a fun, fun evening at the grand opening in the Montgomeryville Pa store shopping and chatting with the representatives of World Market and other bloggers and some of my readers. There was great food and drinks and live music. Now, that’s my way to shop! It was one of those magical shopping opportunities! I came home with a trunk full of goodies! If you live anywhere near Montgomeryville Pa a trip to World Market is so worth your time!
I saw these acrylic nesting tables online at World Market and crossed my fingers that I would find them at the Montgomeryville Pa store… and I did! Then I hoped they would be a thick, sturdy, perfect acrylic… and they were! I am very very impressed with the tables and their price point! Way to go World Market!
I also found this honeycomb lamp and linen lamp shade on my shopping excursion! It was love at first sight! It has panache! And I love panache! I knew it would work perfectly with the chic nesting tables.
Styling lucite is easy. Less is best when decorating the top of a lucite table. Keep it simple!
A lamp or a nice stack of books topped off with a small white decorative bowl is all a lucite piece needs! Don’t over embellish!
I hope I have sung the praises of acrylics enough that you will want to give your home a little bit of lucite!
Can you think of a spot in your home for a little bit of “lucite love”?
