The Latest Trend in Design is Clear

Literally. From small accents to large furniture, acrylic or lucite is being used for a modern twist on decor. These materials are essentially plastic, but that doesn’t mean they look cheap. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Utilizing acrylic or lucite can create a very modern, glamorous vibe and allows you to get really creative in your designs.

One of the more common applications we see of acrylic or lucite is with seating. Clear chairs take up less visual weight, but still catch your attention for being so unexpected, and a little shiny. They can be contemporary, feminine, classic, or edgy.

Lucite or acrylic is also a popular material for furniture – particularly coffee tables. If you already have a bold or busy design, this seemigly weightless material will make a rather large piece of furniture almost disappear. It’s incredibly versatile, fitting into vintage, eclectic, or contemporary spaces.

If you don’t want to go all-out acrylic, there are smaller ways to add in this glam material. Accents on decor, smaller pieces of furniture, and functional accessories look create in lucite or acrylic, and you can show your style without the big commitment.
