Speaking of Lucite…
Lucite seems to be the “now” material of choice. This clear acrylic plastic was once confined to strictly modern and contemporary showrooms with very hard edged lines. But now, lucite is being celebrated by old and new designers alike. It is even making it’s way into fashion!
The February 2010 issue of Elle Magazine features the lucite accessories below in their "Fashion Spotlight".

The softer side of lucite…
Many designers are now using the modern material for more traditional pieces with softer and curvier lines.

“I need contrast—the old and the new, the rough and the soft. The clash of it all is very sexy.”—Fashion designer Catherine Malandrino
