Light And Airy Lucite

Today, more and more home decorators are aiming for a modern minimalist décor. In the past, Lucite furniture was thought to be uncomfortable and too plastic-not making it a viable choice. But today's Lucite furniture is designed with these issues in mind.

Lucite may not be comfortable to sit on, but if a Lucite chair or bench is cushioned with a powder blue silk fabric, you've got color and comfort as well as something airy and almost fragile-looking. Rooms furnished with Lucite look less cluttered. That's why Lucite furniture is just a fabulous choice for a small space.

It's Floating

Rooms feel roomier when they contain fewer items. Because Lucite is translucent, furniture created from this material seems like it's floating. You can see through it, so it doesn't weight down space or clutter the visual field.
Lucite is also more versatile than you might have thought. A few pieces can often mix well with darker, more traditional furniture items. You can update a classic décor with a Lucite trunk filled with ornamental glass paperweights or topped with a crystal lamp.

If you've got a very busy room with outsized lamps and complicated rug patterns, you can put a Lucite table into the mix for better balance and a lighter feel. If you are starting from scratch, consider using Lucite furniture in tandem with a lot of mirrored surfaces, fluffy textured fabrics, and airy blues and pure whites.

Greater Space

If you have a collection of textiles, such as heirloom quilts, try filling a Lucite trunk with them. You'll be amazed at the dramatic impact this piece will have on an otherwise plain, spare room. The trunk will lend magic to a blah space. 

When you choose furniture, it's wise to avoid overstuffed, bulky pieces and instead favor those that carry far less visual weight. Instead of a big, space-invading sofa, opt for a slimmer design with Lucite legs. Instead of using a footlocker or a trunk as your living room coffee table, try a Lucite table so your view remains unobstructed. The idea is to create the illusion of greater space.
