Inspire me Monday / Fabulous acrylic

Happy new week everyone!
Today I am inspired by all things acrylic.
I am fascinated by the amazing array of quality acrylic products that today are available on the market.
What I like about acrylic is its versatility, it mixes well with both contemporary and more traditional interiors and adds a fresh, cool touch to any room. I like to use a bit of acrylic in my interiors when/if I can, it's fun!
For me it all started (again) with the new Alexandra von Furstenberg acrylic furniture range (oh so stylish!) and the acrylic furniture range by Emmanuelle Moureaux, have you checked them out yet? Have a look here and here 
Here is a small taste

Introducing acrylic furniture in a more traditional, sophisticated interior can be fun and very rewarding for the modern designer. Example below is perfect

And of course the ever so popular ghost chairs and stools are always in fashion. They look fantastic with ornate wall panels and more classical features, don't you think?
Check out Philip Stark's complete range here

When teamed up with contemporary architectural features, acrylic furniture brings an element of funkiness and edginess to the room, would you agree?

Catch up soon,

  1. I'm currently trying to find an acrylic )or Lucite as our American friends seem to call it) desk for a client and can't find them here in Australia. If you see one, let me know as it would be perfect in a room that already has a fair amount of furniture. We don't want to add anything too heavy looking. Acrylic is the answer!

  2. Acrylics are fabulous because they blend well in any design style and they immediately add a touch of glam to any space.

  3. I do love a little...I have a pair of Ghost chairs and I have them on each side of an old rustic piece...I love the juxtaposition, especially in your photo above. And I'm pretty sure I've pinned that living room with the Hermes blanket at least twice!

  4. The chairs in that last pictures are amazing and have that perfect modern vintage look. Have a great week, Claudia!
