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. This barely there material never ceases to bring that sense of coolness to a space, and designers are always finding new and clever ways to add this stealthy staple to the mix.

From commercial signage applications in a residential space to fully stocked bar carts that are light on their feet, this industrial strength ‘upstager’ is constantly turning heads. Once a game changer always a game changer I suppose, since the general design of Lucite pieces doesn’t seem to have changed much over the years. In fact, aside from the more extreme examples from a particular era, it would be quite difficult for the average person to guess which pieces were made in the 60’s and 70’s and which might have been made today.

So what is it about Lucite that remains forever young and timelessly chic? It might be the modern vibe it brings to a space, or its weightless and futuristic nature, maybe it’s that extra bit of unexpected something special that ties it all together — I really couldn’t say, but I know I enjoy seeing it happen — as often as possible, for now. So how about you? Do you have a love of Lucite or could you leave it at the door?
