I love the look of sleek, crisp, lucite or acrylic.
At first blush these materials are indisputably contemporary, but they’re actually quite versatile; often, you don’t even see them at all. Lucite is a great option for when you need some additional functionality (an extra table, more seating, a tray or two…) but adding “more” would contribute to more visual clutter than you’d like. With the addition of a translucent piece, you can “float” your chairs, have a magical invisible surface, or just provide a place to rest while allowing your eyes to rest as well while they’re looking straight at a bench.
Here are some lovely applications of acrylic. Some are modern, some are classically traditional. But all are without a doubt enviable.
What’s your favorite “invisible” piece?
