Because I Never Tire of a Lucite Touch. Or Table.

Get this. Architect Benjamin Noriega is working with Plexi-Craft on lucite peices for his new online shop at BNODesign. I bought my waterfall table from Plexi-craft and could not love it more. I perused Benjamin’s beautiful crafts and settled on his simply elegant U Tea Table. I think it’s the proportions that I love. But the base had me at hello. The crystal clear curved acrylic bottom supports a one inch thick white acrylic top. Now, the price is the only thing holding me back – maybe it’ll make it to One Kings Lane next month. For a few hundred less. Perhaps yes. Perhaps no. In the meantime, I’ll oogle over it’s discreet splendor for a few more clear minutes.

Deep vs. Shallow Pockets.

All you bargain hunters out there with a design gene or a hinkering for lucite will love this. While looking for accent tables this afternoon, I came across Wisteria’s Acrylic Coffee Table. At 38 inches square, and inspired by a 1930’s Lucite table, it’s a deal for shallow pockets at $750. It may not have a glass top surface or solid square legs, but it’s a nice design and will work beautifully with an array of stylish interiors.

Now, for anyone who plans to have and to hold a coffee table for years, decades even,  or possibly maybe pass down to kids, grandkids etc., Ralph Lauren’s Carlisle Cocktail Table fits the bill and deeper pockets. It’s a little larger at 48″ square, gorgeous, sturdy, solid, and boasts a glass top surface. Quite a bit of sticker shock (the price says up to $36,000. Seriously?) However, designers who purchase from RLHome will find it to be significantly less expensive.

If you’re like me and in NO way able to afford this beauty, Wisteria’s version is A-Okay for now. And for years I’m sure.

Just a Thought.
