Making its debut as early as the 1930’s but not truly popularized until the 1960’s, this former military application isn’t so much an emerging trend as it is a look that seems to be habitually hip. Perhaps with an occasional ebb and flow in mainstream popularity, Lucite remains on the design radar and readily available in decor and accessories, even despite some of its less than stellar uses in the past.
