Lucite Love

Since sharing this post with you, I’ve been on the hunt for more... simply because I can’t get enough lucite! Although, as much as I love lucite, I really think the ‘less is more’ principle applies here. Keeping pieces to minimum in a single room, unless it’s a set of dining chairs, really allows the pieces to standout, so restraint here will really pay off. I especially love how lucite provides function without taking up visual space, not only making it a great option for small spaces but also allowing others pieces to shine, for example, if a lucite coffee table sat on top of a Madeline Weinrib area rug! Here’s some wonderful examples of the versatility of lucite… enjoy!

Finally, this week is ultra hectic for me so I'm limiting myself to 3 posts. Join me on Wednesday & Friday for more beautiful spaces! Have a great week everyone!

Lucite is lovely indeed! There's a giant glass table in my Panama house that looks like it could be Lucite (but it's not) and I love the aesthetic.

And good for you for cutting back on blog entries this week - surely I speak for all your readers when I say you deserve more time for yourself and that we'll look forward to Wednesday and Friday :)

I am loving lucite too! I have been on the search on Craigslist for a lucite console table because I don't want to pay the full price! Let me know if you come across one!

And you bet I'm looking forward to your Wed. and Fri. posts!

I love lucite too, it's such a great way to add glam and shine into a space in a contemporary way! Will miss you Tuesday and Thursday, but I totally get it!

I've had one of those lucite trays on my wish list for a while now! I really dig that room with the blue wall with mouldings- so cool. We're doing white, blue and orange in our guest room. Funny that I said "we're" doing because my hubby couldn't care less! :)

I'm a lucitaholic- my husand..not so much- when I brought home the ghost chair, he said 'great...more plastic furniture.' Great inspiration shots- looking forward to reading next post on Wed.:)

I'm not a lucite lover but I do enjoy looking at your photos... is it just me or did you notice the gorgeous spotted dalmation lying on the striped zebra rug... just love the contrast! lol

I love lucite furniture! HomeSense recently had benches just like the one in the bedroom via Elle Decor. It took all my willpower not to buy the purple one....
