Lucite Sighting

After falling in love with the lucite side table in Amanda Nisbet’s beach house, I started to see lucite everywhere. Lucite chairs, tables, lamps, hardware, etc. Lucite furniture not only gives a modern appeal to a room, but it also doesn’t take up too much visual space. Phillipe Stark is famous for his Louis Ghost Chairs that he designed in 2002 for Kartell. What I love about these chairs is the modern interpretation of an otherwise classic historical Louis XV armchair. It is a perfect example of the juxtaposition of old and new/traditional and modern. Now that you know about lucite I promise you will start seeing it pop up everywhere.

Kartell's Louis Ghost Chairs. They come in a number of different opaque colors.

These amazing lucite barstools simply disappear under the bar. The bronze seat cushions add another modern element.

The lucite chairs with yellow cushions provide a strong visual contrast to the dark wood table.

Another beach house by Amanda Nesbit with an unexpected Lucite flair.

Lucite can also help you maintain a neutral palette. I love the lucite pedestal on the right!

This console table would be great for an entryway or bar area.
