Modern Acrylic Decor Finds

When it comes to acrylic decor, one thing is crystal clear: furniture and accessories made from this synthetic polymer are undeniably chic! Also known as Lucite, Perspex and Plexiglas, acrylic is even clearer than glass. Plus, it’s more durable than plastic. Acrylic pieces can make a room feel larger, as their transparent nature gives them a “there but not there” appearance that’s helpful for compact spaces. Yet acrylic can be tinted to create vibrant decor, as you will see in some of the selections below. Keep reading for 10 modern acrylic finds that are sure to become the focal point of any room they inhabit…
