Loving Lucite - Clearly a Great Choice
Lucite or Acrylic Furniture & Accents
Designers Love Lucite.
I totally love it. It reminds me of chic Palm Beach Homes in the 70's and Hollywood stars in silk gowns lounging on fainting sofas with cigarettes in long, sleek, black holders. I have no idea where that image comes from.
But that's what I think of.
There are however a ton of resons to love Lucite or Clear Acrylic. It simply works - anywhere.
I can't think of any other material that works in just about any situation than Lucite.
It's a great choice to add a bit of simplicity with style to any home decor.
So you may ask, what is the difference between Acrylic and Lucite?
In short there is no real difference between Acrylic and Lucite.
Lucite is a brand name and simply just the best version of clear acrylic on the market. ... While strength is a key factor in using Lucite, the material is also incredibly flexible, weighs less than glass, and is even clearer than glass.
You do need to take good care of your Lucite / Acrylic to prevent scratches and cloudiness. The best way is to dust with a microfiber cloth and use soapy warm water.
