Trend Tuesday: Lucite

I first become obsessed with lucite when I was introduced to the Ghost Chair (featured in the key photo). Lucite, while just being a fancy world for acrylic plastic, sounds so luxe and feels so chic in whatever environment it’s in. The illusions of space it creates allows it to work in a small area, while the impact of design packs a big punch. (Personal note – I purchased a ….totally real… Ghost Chair and have never looked back, it is one of my favorite things I have. So versatile!)

This stormy grey Ghost Chair complements the glass desk and adds a sense of whimsy. These chairs almost look like they could belong in a dollhouse, right?!

My obsession reached full throttle when I was browsing One Kings Lane one day and saw this lucite trunk used as a coffee table. So impossibly cool! Most people would shudder at a piece normally used to contain ugly knick knacks and mismatched books becoming clear but I think the whole idea is so irresistibly playful.

If you want to implement lucite, but are not sure you can fill up a trunk in an artful way, these lucite coffee tables are awesome. Contrary to coffee tables made of wood or glass, lucite offers the features of being supremely sturdy and effortlessly light.

If  investing in large lucite furniture seems daunting, you can get your fix in smaller ways. Here, MyDesignDump plays on the gallery wall by using lucite shelves to hold eclectic pieces. The shelves can easily be moved around, adjusted, and played with to suit your style or the season.

Another easy way to grab the trend is with desk accessories. This is a way of getting your fix without dropping major dollars. And who knows – maybe if your obsession grows, you can join me in the Ghost Chair club!
