I never saw myself as a lucite person. It always felt too modern or too weirdly retro (and not in the fun way that I'm ever so addicted to), or sometimes...dare-I-say-it cheap, but I've been singing another tune as of late. **As per usual, please pin responsibly and pin from the original source. Gracias!!!**
When I saw Katie Kime's kitchen in Lonny Mag, it stopped me in my tracks. It's traditional but not stuffy, colorful without being overwhelming, and has a very sophisticated whimsy to it. That lucite island is everything. EVERYTHING.
Katie Kime is clearly a lucite Jedi master. If you peak above, you can see a glimpse of a lucite bar cart which is available in her shop. Dear Santa, this would be acceptable to find under my tree Christmas morning. Forget the fact that it won't fit under the tree.... and I already have too much furniture in my house..... I'll make it work. XO Karen
Then just yesterday, I saw this cozy space on chrislovesjulia's instagram feed. This lucite coffee table doesn't feel modern, retro, or cheap. I just is. It serves a purpose without adding visual clutter to the space. It's a quiet statement. Bravo. Doesn't this room just invite you to curl up with a book?
I've also jumped on the lucite train apparently too. On my instagram feed, you may have also noticed a bit of my own lucite a couple weeks ago. In addition to these 2 lucite bowls, I also scored a simple lucite tray that has yet to be styled. Estate sales for the win.
While, yes, lucite can go wrong pretty fast, it can also go oh so right. Are there any design trends or styles you find yourself changing your tune on?
Have a wonderful weekend!
