Have a Seat: Clear Alternatives for Lucite Chairs

Thinking about how to work a Lucite seat into your d├ęcor? Wondering if a Lucite seat is the right answer? Wonder no longer: These seats are not only chic and stylish, but they might be classic and timeless if presented in the ideal way. So, if you’re in the market for a new seat contemplate your choices, as well as your existing area: Lucite may be the obvious answer.


The Louis Ghost chair by Philippe Starck is a classic design, and nearly impossible to fail with. A Lucite seat is a great complement to this shallow desk; a solid seat would probably overpower the table.

Here’s the Louis Ghost chair , paired with another excellent layout: the Kartell Mademoiselle seat. Utilizing two Ghost chairs in the end of the table vs. six Mademoiselle chairs differentiates the look, and the taller Ghost seats add a mid-tier height. The floral toss pillow on the Ghost seats pulls them into the overall scheme.

Lucite seats are a excellent option in monochromatic rooms, especially those which are already sparsely furnished. All these Lucite chairs provide room for seats without pulling away the attention from the focal point of the beautiful tub.

If you want a Lucite seat to pop somewhat, dress it up! It looks like the designer tossed a faux sheepskin rug onto this Louis Ghost Chair, giving it a comfy texture.

There is something equally delicate and elegant about pairing Lucite chairs with a glass table. This is a good combination in a small space; the transparency of both tricks the eye into believing it is consuming less space than solid options. Colored dishware will add a”floating” pop of color to the tablescape!

Or, if space allows, pair Lucite chairs with a obviously cut wood table. The organic element of this dining table is too stunning to be overshadowed by deflecting seats — same goes for the vivid abstract on the wall!

Get modern chic with blue lighting in the kitchen, and also balance the effect together with Lucite bar stools. The transparency of this Lucite lets the seats take on the same colour.

If you select a bold color for your kitchen island, be savvy with what you choose for accessories. All these Lucite chairs take the crisp, elegant look vibe this kitchen is dishing while balancing the potency of this orange shade.

When using a Lucite seat feels too cold to you, pair it with a cushion. Matched with this organic dining table and comfy environment, the cushioned seat immediately feels more inviting.

Sigh, another amazing Kartell Mademoiselle seat. Don’t be scared to stick a Lucite seat in an otherwise conventional setting: it modernizes the look with a hint of the eclectic. Plus, in this instance, that the Mademoiselle adds a needed pop of playful color and pattern.


If you have wallpapered or painted your walls in a bold graphic, especially if the flooring or ceiling are contained, work a little Lucite into the space to create an equilibrium. The mirrored table paired using a Lucite seat and table lamp is elegant without interrupting the flow of these great stripes.


If you’re not 100 percent on the clear look, look at finding Lucite chairs with a hint of color. The smoky colour of these chairs heighten their existence, and also the further shade of grey gives the overall strategy more attention.

It may be somewhat tricky including seating in front of the entry to a space; you do not want to break the flow. However, Lucite seats are a great solution: they sneak in that excess spot to sit, and the room still feels open and relaxing upon entering. Lucite does it again!
