Lucite chairs (and other lucite furniture, sometimes called “ghost” or acrylic) have been gaining steam in decorating in recent years. While it’s easy to think this is just a trend, lucite furniture has actually been around for a while and was very big in mid-century modern design. The resurgence of this classic look has offered up some great new spins on it that make it a fabulous choice for a variety of scenarios.
One of my favorite looks is a dining room with lucite chairs. There are a lot of benefits to using lucite chairs around a dining room table. Because they are clear and see-through, lucite chairs take up very little visual weight so that the space feels larger, airier, and more open. They can also keep the focus on bright colors and bold patterns or let you see a beautiful base of a table.
Here are 10 dining rooms with lucite chairs to show you the many ways in which they can be used, whether your style is rustic, modern, glamorous or something in-between.
