Trend Spotter Thursday

13 May

We’re always searching for new products and furniture to add to our ever-expanding inventory of furniture.  We can’t help but notice the continuing trend that is lucite (acrylic) furniture.  And frankly, we love it!

We love how lucite can transform an average space into a modern lair in an instant.  Not only do lucite pieces look modern they are the answer to many design challenges.

If you have a small space a select lucite piece will keep the flow going and expand on the space you do have.  Because it is usually clear (you can also find tinted lucite products) it relieves you of crowding a space and the heavy feeling solid furniture can create.

Have a walkout patio overlooking the city from your living room?  A table with lucite chairs will allow you to have the functional furniture you need without obscuring your picturesque view.

Small dining room?  You can mix lucite with many types of dining tables whether it be wood, glass or other.  Want to start small?  Accessories and lamps made of lucite are popping up everywhere as well.  Check out these affordable ‘tobias’ lucite chairs from IKEA.

But SFC warns you, this trend will instantly transform your apartment, condo or home into a modern pad that screams city chic.  We may just have to get a piece for ourselves.  We’re thinking some lucite chairs will add some “space” to our cramped dining room.
