I Love Lucite
I love lucite, both vintage and modern, and know how one piece of clear acrylic furniture can change any room. There are many beautiful examples out there, but many can cost thousands of dollars. This wonderful piece called Usame was designed by Patricia Urquiola for Kartell. I love its Zen-like elegance and the ginkgo leaf motif which pays homage to art deco illustration. It is great as a coffee table, side table, or a stunning bed tray. It even has a spot to hold magazines. It is available in seven colors. Best of all, it's $300. It is easily found online. This is a no-brainer.
