8 Stylish Ways To Add A Touch Of Lucite Into Your Décor

Above, a Lucite coffee table and acrylic accents in the dining room bring a modern feel to this stunning space by Ashley Darryl.

There’s nothing quite like Lucite or Plexiglass for bringing a dash of the unexpected into your décor. The clear material isn’t just stylish — it also helps preserve sight lines in a living space, making rooms appear bigger and brighter. While Lucite and Plexiglass are often used interchangeably, you might wonder if there is a difference between the two terms. The answer? There aren’t huge differences between Lucite and Plexiglass products. They are both made of high-grade acrylic, after all. Whether a product is called Lucite or Plexiglass simply depends on the manufacturer, since each is a trademarked material. For ease, many pieces can correctly be called acrylic. No matter what you call it, Lucite, Plexiglass, and acrylic furniture and accessories are clearly chic. Here are our favorite pieces currently for sale at Viyet:

Vintage Frank Sinatra Lucite Planet Earth Bucket

You can think of Lucite as the modern answer to crystal. It reflects light beautifully, but without being too precious or appearing too traditional. This fabulous vintage lamp has a stacked form that will introduce an unusual silhouette to your living space.

Charles Hollis Jones Lucite and Brass Sling Chairs

When it comes to Lucite and acrylic furniture, no name is more renowned than that of Charles Hollis Jones. His revolutionary approach to furniture design utilized the clear materials, often accented with brass, as in these accent chairs. Though they were designed in 1978, their design has proven to be timeless.

Charles Hollis Jones Lucite Vase

Another incredible work by the master of Lucite, Charles Hollis Jones, this vase is a functional work of art. It comes with interchangeable, richly hued glass liners (cobalt, amethyst, emerald, yellow, and pink) that allow you to change the color of the piece to fit your mood.

Jeff Messerschmidt Pipeline Series II Chairs

Lucite frames shift the focus to the dazzling purple and gold upholstery that covers the cushions in these modern accent chairs. The pair, which was signed by the designer, dates back to the 1970s. They bring a unique glimpse of color, dimension, and form to a living room.

Vintage Lucite Side Tables With Mirrored Tops

Mirrored tops and a Lucite form shift the focus to the sleek silhouettes of these circa 1970s tables. These versatile accent tables are the perfect complement to mid-century or contemporary décor schemes, especially when paired with similarly clean-lined pieces.

Plexi-Craft Acrylic Lago Table

Lucite takes color beautifully — the thicker material brings a rich depth that you don’t usually get with glass. This ruby red table is crafted from 1”-thick acrylic, giving it a standout quality despite its smaller size. It can be used as a pedestal table to highlight a sculpture or other objet d’art, or a cocktail table that complements any accent chair (we like to imagine this piece paired with rich velvet upholstery for textural contrast).

Erinn V. Catherine Chaise

Even just a hint of Lucite is enough to make a statement. Here, tapered legs in clear acrylic bring a weightless quality (and modern feel) to the deep tufted cream chaise by Erinn V.
