My Love for Lucite

Acrylic, Lucite, or Plexiglass is a a solid transparent plastic made of polymethyl methacrylate. It’s 8 times clearer than glass. It can be used in it’s clear state for any purpose. You can also paint it with acrylic paint.

I am truly enamored of all the beautiful furniture and products being produced now with this material. You can decorate with acrylic in almost any decor scheme. It’s non invading and also has a persona of it’s own.

The furniture was introduced in the 60’s and became popular again with the “Ghost Chair”.

The Ghost Chair was designed by Philippe Starck to resemble the Louis XV chair but with a modern twist. I’m 90% sure that you have seen this chair in person or via social media because it is so popular.

 

 

Have you used acrylic/lucite furniture in your home or office? I would love to see it.
