lucite love

Prettypic5

I'll admit it.  I'm falling more and more in love with lucite.  Loved Jenny's post sharing some affordable lucite resources.  She always has the best design tips that are both practical and beautiful.

Also loved this little lucite glimpse from Lonny mag.

A lucite bench at the end of my bed would have me drooling.  What are the odds that my husband will see this post and immediately go order this perfect King George bench for my upcoming birthday? Hmmmmm, not very likely. This is when I wish he could be Gay Bob for just one minute then go back to his regular self.  Anybody old enough to remember "Gay Bob" on SNL?

If I had to pick just one alternate lucite lova', it would be a ghost chair.  So cliche, I know.  Where would I put it?  In my eight-year-old's bedroom at her antique vanity.  Would give her room more of a "big girl" look.

I found some reasonably priced ones here.  Obviously they're faux, but still look fairly chic.

    Hi,
    This is an interesting post as a matter of fact, I am an interior designer by my profession and via a designer look this looked so good and yes, this chair would make your girl bathroom look cool :)

    As a girl, I watched Cinderalla so many times and thought about that clear glass slipper and how much fun it would be to have a pair, or a table or a recipe box or trunk….
    Now back to my sweeping.

    What a hoot–wishing your hubby could be “Gay Bob” for a minute! That is EXACTLY me – although I tell my hubby I wish he would be temporarily metrosexual till I get what I want, then he can go back! LOL Love the looks of lucite that you posted.

    I’m into lucite too! You might like this chair from Ikea http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20115038 I use them as my dining chairs and they are really comfortable. Also an affordable price for your daughter’s bedroom!

    You are so sweet, Seleta! Thanks for the kind words about my blog. That means so much coming from you!! And I love this post. Gay Bob! I can totally relate there. Sometimes Michael is just a little too straight and he doesn’t get it. :)
    I was absolutely dying, reading about the adventures of your move. Yikes!! So glad you all survived to tell the tales. I hope you’re getting all settled in the new/old place and getting out to enjoy that gorgeous beach of yours.

    oh man, that studio apt from Lonny was incredible! I loved all of the pinks, greens, and blues, a perfectly colorful space to use lucite.

    I love lucite too! I’m a big fan of the upholstered lucite bench in bedrooms. I’ve saved about 5 different images with that piece of furniture. I clearly need to incoroporate it one of these days!

    Oh yes I LOVE too! If I could find a cheap enough piece I would just die!!! Lol!

    Oh me too, can’t get enough, and still don’t have any lucite in the house! I gotta get one of those chairs, for a nice wooden desk with great patina.

    ahhh lucite. a lucite chair is the perfect accesory…and it won’t be overwhelming to boys. : )

    One of my faves from a glossy (can’t remember which—Living, etc maybe?) had a lucite box with a vintage Louis V. suitcase inside–it was used as a coffee table and was tres’ chic :)
