LUCITE - It's all clear now

This transparent trend has taken interior design by storm.  When it comes to acrylic furniture, one thing is clear; there is power to transparency.  Clear acrylic is a thermoplastic with the look of glass and the benefit of shatter resistance.  Durable and airy, this material sells under many names, including Lucite, Perspex, Plexiglas, Acrylic and Poly (methyl methacrylate) or PMMA.

Lucite's light reflective surface adds an element of luster to any space.  It's practically the ultimate neutral as it is unexpected and works well in any area.  It is great for confined spaces in need of furniture that won't overpower the room.  There's an inherent cool factor that makes it work for both feminine and masculine rooms.  Lucite is the ideal partner to leather, furs, and metals.  Mix it up with metallic accessories for a glamorous, modern look or add it to neutral pieces for a romantic feel.
