I love.... Lucite!

Entry by Jesse Carrier (in Jason Wu's office)

I am totally loving lucite right now! I don't think I'd want a whole mod room with multiple lucite pieces, but the way these designers add a modern touch using this material is just fabulous.

What a great contrast to use lucite with such plush and traditional furnishings!

This material has the amazing ability to keep the interiors light and airy by not taking up much visual space. (Plus, it adds a bit of sparkle, which is always good!)

I know I've shown this pic of a dining area by Timothy Whealon before, but I think this bears repeating! The pale pink walls and the cane-back chairs combine perfectly with the lucite to create a bright and elegant room.

Design by Tom Scheerer

I love how Scheerer subtly tucks this small lucite side table between the armchairs and the gorgeous marble-top console. Functional and stylish!

Our last photo of the day is a gorgeous room by the talented Katie Ridder. I love the putty-gray walls, the politely cozy armchairs, the sconces, the photo, and, of couse, that coffee table!

Have a terrific Tuesday!


  1. You know, I thought the Louis Ghost Chair was about as far as I would go but this post has me looking at the beautiful possibilities. I think one or two elements would be wonderful!

  2. So true! I love how, in that last room by Katie Ridder, the way the coffee table adds sparkle and a lightness to the otherwise dark room, while its sturdiness matches the weight of the other furnishings. Definitely a modern style I could handle! Thanks for the comment!
