{lovely lucite}

Absentmindedly flipping through past issues of domino awhile ago and came across a favourite vignette {above} in the first ever issue, and was reminded of how beautiful lucite can look when paired with the perfect pieces and accessories . . .

{a lucite console is the perfect complement to a large antique French mirror and weathered floorboards}

{lucite office furniture in a february 2005 versace ad campaign featuring madonna and shot by mario testino; aside: also included, the eames soft pad aluminum group chair}

{lucite bases make these large mirrored coffee and end tables appear as if they are floating . . .}

Oh, I really do love lucite! Love how it can cause otherwise cluttered spaces to appear open. That first vignette is lovely.

Wonderful post! I love Lucite and the images are so pretty. Great for a small room so you can still see the floor and give the illusion of more space :) I love your list of links! Fabulous idea :)

Love the idea of Lucite letters!!! So hot.

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Ah, I love lucite and try to have some in every part of the house. That top image inspired me to actually buy that piece which I use as a dresser under a mirror in my bedroom. Love this post!

love the mirrored sidetable... anybody have an idea who it's from?
great post!

Love Lucite. Would die to have a ghost chair in my apartment. Always, always looks great on floorboards painted white.

Glorious!

Lauren [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Joanna [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I adore that top photo. The lucite perfectly frames the haphazard pile of books.

you KNOW i love me some lucite!! beautiful picks. also - total aside - i really can't stand madonna in ads usually. the louis vuitton ones were well done and she STILL bothered me. but i loved the versace. good call ;)

oneshotbeyond [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

the black chairs in the 1st photo are stunning.

Millie [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I loved lucite in the 70's and I'm glad to see it back again. It's so beautiful. Love the desk.

Decortherapia [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Love mirror tables... This post is so good. Maddonas picture is pure glam...

J. Cochran [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I never would have thought of using lucite furniture on my own. But seeing it here, I really like it.

franki durbin [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

the Lucite aside (I adore it, too) Madonna looks amazing in that photo. She's got those big, enormous, gorgeous eyes. Fabulous.

Kosmopolight [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Who knew lucite could look so fabulous. Love these pics. Beautiful post.

SoftSpoken [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

While lucite furniture can certainly look beautiful and make a look more spacious, there is a balance that must achieved. Too much lucite and a room can loose character. It should be used to accent another piece such as the middle picture when the lucite table is accentuating the mirror.

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

i LOVE the top image - it's a bit how my room looks now (lucite mixed with chinoiserie style).
domino started in 2005? it seems so short-lived...it will be missed.

citysage [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Yum. That second image is absolute perfection. I'm still scheming about how I can get this one client to go for some lucite---totally living vicariously through him!

Emily Johnston | EJ Interiors [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Everyone's gotta have a little bit of lucite!

Jennifer Ramos [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

OF COURSE....I'm loving Madonna's shot, and i'll take one of those chairs $$$ please.!

Totally agree. One of my favourite Australian Vogue Living issues has an article on Pippa Holt's house and she uses one. All her mags are stacked below - its amazing - looks like the magazines are the table. Beautiful post x

Tina Tarnoff [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I love lucite, especially coffe tables and chairs. One of my favorite pieces ever is a Helena Rubenstein Lucite chair, found in The Paris Apaprtment Boutique (link: http://www.theparisapartment.com/boutique/index.php?p=41)
Lovely!
