Here at Decoist, our love for clear acrylic furniture is no secret. Not only do acrylic pieces add shine, they create the illusion of more space. How? Because you can see the floor through a clear coffee table, and a transparent chair by the window lets the light shine through it. In other words, acrylic pieces don’t fight with the dimensions of the room or break up the space in a jarring way. On the contrary, they seem to float in the spaces they inhabit!
Plus, people are more likely to be organized when using clear acrylic pieces to hold their items. OK, so no research has been done on this topic… But would you want all of your clutter on full display through the transparent drawers of your acrylic desk? Neither would we! Which is why acrylic furnishings encourage neatness, much like you’re encouraged to clean your house when you know guests will be viewing its contents. Speaking of viewings, take a look at our new round-up of acrylic furniture finds. Enjoy browsing today’s selections!
To kick things off, we turn the spotlight on some truly unique acrylic seating! Wouldn’t this Acrylic Bus Bench from Muniz Plastics make an interesting outdoor piece for a modern patio or garden? Picture a potted palm sitting right next to this see-through item, then imagine the bench sparkling in the sunlight!
For a comfy sofa with a Lucite base, check out the Impresario Seating by BNO Design. Note how the firm right angles of the arms bring a well-defined element to this piece, which is anything but icy thanks to the help of plush cushions. [from Plexi-Craft]
For an unusual take on acrylic design, have a look at the conversation pieces featured in the next image! They are Aitali Louis Chaise Acrylic Chairs, and the antique vibe they evoke is sharply contrasted by their icy outline in acrylic. Yes, these chairs effectively combine future and past.
