This amazingly elegant, chic and tasty room uses a million of my favorite design tools! Paintings, chunky frames, over sized mirror, roman blinds and Lucite OH MY! Sadly Source is Unknown to me of origin 

Amazing Lucite Desk and Chair give a edgy, elegant, clean and airy look to tight space. Another must have for the wish list!  

Dynamic blue sofa by Crate and Barrel accented by a understated Lucite table smartly stacked books and a vase of branches and over-sized mirror gives me major Lucite envy! 
Turning a stunning Louis Vuitton trunk into a work of art and functional accent table is one of my favorite uses of Lucite yet! Made for Neiman Marcus by Aaron R. Thomas.  

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors Lucite.... Oh beautiful room how i love thee, let me count the ways... Over-sized ornate mirror, painted wood floor, A-frame based Lucite table, white modern stools instead of chairs, Pink floor pillows, built in bookcase and a fireplace with fantastic mantel holding a simple mirror and silver fancy things!!! 

Even I who more often than not opt for a nice glass of Pellegrino water than a glass of bubbly.  Would not be so inclined to turn down a drink if offered when served on this sexy little piece of Lucite and Chrome!  This fancy Lucite cart takes service carts to the NEXT LEVEL!
