Guest Picks: The Look of Lucite
— Kristy and Beth from
We think these are probably some of the coolest lucite tables we've ever seen. We would love to light candlesticks on them and watch them flicker in the mirrored tops. It would create a wonderful cocktail-party ambience. They're ideal for in front of a sofa.
This Lucite and Mirrored Console is so fabulous. If you're going to have a TV in a room, we say hang the TV on the wall and put something stunning like this underneath. It will definitely take some attention from the movie of the week.
All we can say about these chairs is, "Wow!" These would make extraordinary bar stools.
These flower lamps are absolutely precious. We can only imagine how unbelievable they would look in a little girl's room. Or, even better, they'd be the perfect touch of whimsy in a living room.
We love, love, love these lamps! The gold adds a touch of elegance and would add a modern element to a formal living room. We can see them on either side of a console table or, in the right situation, on either end of a dining room buffet.
When we think of lucite, we think of the coffee table first. This one is still simple and chic, but the double layer and pretty legs give it a little something extra. We can see it in a larger room where plain, clear lucite would seem to fade into the background.
When setting the perfect table, candlesticks are key. Plain silver or brass can get so boring — and, for certain occasions, too formal. These lucite and brass candlesticks are far from boring, and they light the table with a flourish.
As bookends or just as a fabulous focal point, these funky aluminum and lucite gazelles are amazing. We want them for our desks.
Especially in the colder days of winter, there's nothing better than a nice and warm seat by the fire. Its classic shape makes this stool usable in a more traditional space, while the lucite adds a modern edge.
Lucite for the bathroom? Why not? With or without a towel, we think these bars are so chic.
This classic lucite table looks amazing basically anywhere. We would put it over an animal hide to let the rug shine.
An amazing table lamp is sometimes all about the base. Cutting a piece of glass in any shape you choose is an inexpensive way to convert a beautiful base into a jaw-dropping centerpiece. This one would be perfect for a sunroom.
Sometimes it can be tricky to find the right piece for those smaller spots. Beside a chaise or chair, the dimension and shape of this table would add interest — and a spot for your drink.
Lucite chairs are such versatile pieces. We love that they're lightweight and occupy very little visual space. We prefer them for dining, especially in any sort of room with a view: the beach, the river, the mountains, farmland. Who needs to focus on a chunky chair back with all that natural beauty around?
For those who like lucite chairs but think the overall affect can be, well, a little boring, these chairs are perfect. We love the pattern on the back and seat, and we think these would be great on the opposite side of a desk or as occasional chairs in a small room.
When it comes to setting a stylish table, napkin rings are key. We'd slip a colorful linen through these rings to give a summer barbecue table a pop of color. Our favorite part about these rings is that there's a hole just right for slipping a fresh flower through, too!
Wow! Talk about making a statement. We'd love to use this end table in a beach house. The colors could go with any scheme, and there's something about the base that, to us, feels like driftwood.
These fabulous, chunky lucite frames are a focal point in their own right while still letting your photos shine. We would love to make a huge statement table with just these frames and years of treasured family memories.
We love the look of antlers, and these pretty lucite ones are a great way to get the look — no hunting required. We'd use these as the perfect accent on a stack of books.Next: Take a Seat: Clear Choices for Lucite Chairs
We don't know what we'd store in it, but we'd love to have this Lucite Trunk. We'd put this one at the end of a bed or in a stylish playroom. Talk about glamorous storage!
