Lucite, acrylic, plexiglass… no matter what you call it, decorating with a great piece of it is sure to add a touch of chic. One of my design obsessions is the combination of unexpected textures. By placing an acrylic piece in your space, you add a dash of modern sparkle. Not only does it reflect light beautifully but it does not take up any visual space… great for small houses like mine! Now on to some eye candy!
Just look how Jan Showers’ Mercer Bench finishes off this lovely room like a sparkly piece of jewelry…
My super stylish friend, Kori, has an acrylic waterfall console in her entryway that is perfect. What a smart piece to use in a typically tight space. Here is an example of the same use by designer Colleen McGill. She really maximized the visual aspect of the acrylic by placing it directly in front of a floor to ceiling mirror. Brilliant!
And guess what? You can decorate with acrylic on a budget! Just check out these Peekaboo Nesting Tables from CB2 for $199. CB2 carries several acrylic pieces in their Peekaboo line. You can even score similar tables on Overstock.com if the time is right! ($124.99!!!)
This acrylic and mirror bar cart from 1stdibs.com is sure to turn some heads!
Okay, just one more… this is like the acrylic custom Cadillac of bar carts…
Actually, I love acrylic pieces so much, that I’m going to split this post into several!! Sorry, but it must be done! Too much to share… Let me know what you think!
