This side table has a Moroccan flair to it, Lucite gives it an extra oomph!

In my professional and biased opinion (I’m a huge fan) I believe that any interior whether it be a commercial or residential setting – there is no room for mistakes when placing at least one piece of Lucite furniture in your home or office. Lucite even pairs up nicely in a more “traditional” style of home decor. You don’t necessarily have to have a modern or contemporary decor to pull this off.

As you can see, this trend is very forgiving. No matter where you place it will always look good; having a minimal yet strong presence in your living room, kitchen, home office, or dining room.

A great place for Lucite furniture us in the kitchen for two reasons; 1. No fret over stains, easily wipeable! 2. Since they are clear its they aren’t really there… not taking up any visual space.

Of course, we absolutely have to talk about lucite coffee tables. Similar to glass coffee tables, they can be difficult to spot and can sometimes cause injuries and accidents so make sure they’re visible. These two, for example, have rope handles.

“I love the combination of the burlwood and the acrylic,” Roop said of this mid-century modern table attributed to Vladimir Kagan. “It seems to float in the air.”

For the living room in a mid-century modern townhouse in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Eaton chose a pair of box-shaped tables with copper handles from Jamie Dietrich. “We didn’t want anything to be too heavy, and that area was a place where [the family] would sometimes move those tables so the kids could play,” she says. The tables doubled as snack trays since the kitchen is nearby. “They have this transportable feel to them that I think was really fun.”

Expect it to be a conversation piece at your next family gathering.

Lucite furniture come in different shapes, sizes, styles, and even colors now. My favorite take on Lucite is using this material and having it made into a more traditional looking piece of furniture.

In this eclectic dining room you can see a transparent lucite bar which looks quite interesting. Of course, everything stored inside is visible so you won’t be able to hide anything from your guests.

This modern nursery has a plexiglas crib which looks particularly interesting. It’s safe and secure but it’s also transparent and this means that you can easily take a peak at your baby without disturbing him/her and the baby can look around without an obstructed view.

This Erco backlit mirror from the 1970s would be “absolutely gorgeous in a dark powder room where you want moody lighting and a great glow,” Eaton says. Paired with a dark stone sink and brass fixtures, the mirror’s light would create a mood that “feels glamorous, dramatic and a bit sexy.”

A London-inspired library in the Upper East Side “needed something that would be cool and funky and hip,” says Galli. So she reached for a Lucite coffee table by Charles Hollis Jones that “just hit the right note” as far as being a light counterpoint to the darker sofa and rug. Galli notes that the table has a “cool luminosity to anchor the room.”

Plexiglas chairs are very interesting. On one hand, they’re very practical because they seem to take up less space thanks to the fact that they’re transparent. On the other hand, be careful what you wear when you sit down.

For this designer, Lucite never went out of style. “I have always liked using it for certain spots in a space,” he says, particularly “as a juxtaposition with upholstery or more solid-looking pieces.”

Not sure how to work Lucite into your home? We asked a few of our favorite designers to share what they love about this material, plus select a piece from 1stdibs and tell us how they would use it in a room.

“I think there’s a freshness and cleanness to it,” says Fawn Galli, an interior designer based in New York. Not only is Lucite practical, since it can work in nearly any environment, it’s incredibly stylish.

Lucite is similar to glass because it looks fragile but it’s very strong and it can be used for all sorts of things, including guardrails for the staircase. This is another clever use of the material because it gives the staircase a less robust and visually-intrusive look.

As we’ve already mentioned, we find lucite to be a particularly great material for the bedroom which needs to be airy, simple, relaxing and peaceful. Here, for example, you can see a lovely side table with lucite legs and a canopy bed with posts made from the same material.

Form and function draw interior designer Amy Lau to see-through pieces again and again. “I always use rugs that look like art,” she says, and Lucite allows you to “enjoy that rug and still see it.” Another plus: “It’s so easy to wipe up,” she says, and is not a conductor of heat so it stays the same temperature. With Lucite coffee tables, the piece “becomes almost like a background so that anything I set on it is like art.”

“In particular, I admire work by Charles Hollis Jones, like one of his very rare Le Dome dining tables” from the 1970s, Lau says. “This monolithic piece, with its clean-lined design, can bring a very strong visual accent,” in a dining room, especially when surrounded by beautifully upholstered dining chairs.

However, using these pieces in moderation is key. Place a simple coffee table, side table, chair or desk one at a time…. Not all at once! That’s when the trend can go horribly wrong… can you imagine having a room filled with literately clear furniture?… Whoa! Lucite furniture is nearly invisible, which works well in smaller spaces… creating an illusion of having a little extra space. “A Lucite piece can be a whimsical accent in a room, adding a hint of luminescence.” says interior designer Vicenzo Avanzato.

Lucite is commonly used for tabletops and desktops. They are usually used when the base of the table or desk is eye-catching and particularly interesting and deserves to be fully admired and not hidden under a solid tabletop.

The visionary designer, known for crafting eclectic interiors with an eye to the past, favors see-through furniture for its ability to work with a variety of pieces and remain stylish. “It’s just a cool material to mix in with other furnishings, and I think that you can mix it with traditional or contemporary” items, she says.

“I think there’s something really nice about the simplicity of anything Lucite or acrylic — it feels lightweight,” says Tamara Eaton, whose eponymous firm deftly balances traditional and modern designs. Even in the most historical setting, “you can still introduce some Lucite or something kind of lightweight and not have it feel like a distinct interjection, but a playful one that’s more about the shape,” she says.

For a dazzling family home in Bridgehampton, New York, Lau added custom Lucite tables that curl up around the sofas like a snack bar. With them, you get “this great function,” but you don’t have to see it in action. The vibrant color-field composition by the late Sagaponack painter Sydney Butchkes remains the room’s focus.

Lucite furniture is very versatile and it easily fits in any room and almost any type of décor. This contemporary bathroom features a lucite vanity stool which can easily go unnoticed. It complements the whole serene and minimalist look.

These lucite bar stools are simple and chic and they look great there. The whole room seems brighter when the colors and materials used for its interior design are delicate and meant to create harmony throughout.

For the living room of a loft-like apartment in South Beach, Roop brought in a mod-looking chair by LaVerne to complement the rest of the setting. “I felt the curved lines of the chair looked nice with the round rug and coffee table,” he said. The fuzzy blue cushion also matches the couch and the painting above.

Lucite, also known as plexiglas, is a synthetic organic compound and a material with high stability and good resistance to shock. It’s colorless and transparent and largely used in aircraft canopies and windows, boat windshields, car taillights, camera lenses but also ornaments and furniture. Because lucite is very resistant and also transparent, it’s widely used in modern interior design to add depth to a space and to make it seem more airy.

This bedroom features a bench with plexiglas feet which make it look less robust and also match the delicate and simple décor in the room. It’s a much better choice than wood in this particular case.

Lucite, or transparent plastic, furniture has been on design editors’ radars for several seasons now, but thanks to a renewed interest in pieces from the late 1960s and ’70s, the trend is expected to reach fever pitch this fall.

Over the decades we have seen so many interior design trends hit our homes. Some quickly fade (neon furniture) some are acceptable (wallpaper) and some are still in limbo!

This versatile material is also used for making wall-mounted shelves. Because the shelves are transparent, the books or the items stored and displayed there seem to be floating and they create a very beautiful visual effect.

Yay or nay? Is Lucite furniture clearly elegant or transparently tacky?

One of my favorite trends keeps making strong come backs, however there are still a few of you out there who aren’t sure on how to react to this trend…. I’m talking about Lucite Furniture!

Framed in bands of bright yellow Lucite, these contemporary consoles “bring in everything we love about the material while adding a graphic punch of color to the room,” Galli says. “As a sofa table or a console against the wall, these tables are a statement without being overt. They blend in, but still bring shine and color in an unexpected way.”
