I love trend watching and enjoy it even more so when I see the trends trickle across various categories from interior design then into furniture and then trending into the world of fashion! One hot thang that I love a whole lot is lucite. Lucite, or acrylic resin, brings an instant dose of glamour to any space….or outfit!
Lucite is great to use in small spaces where you need the function, but not the heavy visual weight. It’s clear quality just adds a touch of lightness and luminescence to any room. In some of my favorite past design projects, I have incorporated lucite in various ways.
As counterstools in this stunning kitchen of one of my favorite clients….
Seating in dining rooms….
I loved using lucite in contrast to the darker, industrial pieces in this project of ours on the Mag Mile
Or even just a simple, small touch of lucite as a stand in an entry hall can make all the difference in how an artifact is displayed
Currently at my Buckingham Interiors + Design showroom in Chicago, we’ve got quite a few cool vintage lucite finds including candlesticks and one of my faves that I can never ever resist…lucite grapes!
Lucite can be used in so many different formats….in lighting, accessories (Love these amazing antlers shown below)…or even in cribs!
Lucite also is everywhere in fashion, from jewelry….
Even Hollywood is jumping on the lucite bandwagon. Leave it to Miley C to make a major Lucite statement!! Hmmmmm…
Just remember that a little goes a long way with lucite. Test it out in one of your rooms or your wardrobe- or maybe both!
