I Love .... Acrylic!

I feel like my apartment is done, I like it simple and sparse.  But... I'd love to have an acrylic piece!  I adore how well they fit in a small place, as they take up no visual weight.  I especially love them on white floors, so airy they appear to float.  Here's some lovely acrylic pieces.

Love the acrylic Louis Ghost Chair designed by Philippe Starck.  Image Louise Roe.
The Victoria Ghost Chairs (also designed by Starck) look perfect with this industrial table and white floor!  Swoon!  Image via sfgirlbybay.
Cute acrylic console serves as a desk and fits neatly under a set of stairs.  Brenda & Harry's Contemporary Coach House via Apartment Therapy.
I love the idea of putting a table runner on this acrylic coffee table to add a dash of color.  House to Home.
Ghost chairs and an acrylic coffee table!  Be still my heart.  That hanging lamp is pretty amazing too.  Lamps Plus.
This is one of the most fascinating dining rooms I've seen.  I hope you will humor me, I simply must dissect it.    The acrylic chairs are the perfect foil to the heavy wooden table.  A perfect combination of hard and soft.  Look at that gorgeous white console!  I wonder if this is a custom piece, I'd love to have it in my entry way.  Of course, I'd pile pottery on it.  Its severe geometry is complemented by that totally fab lantern.  Perfect gray walls.  A very discerning eye created this room.  Daymon's Open Plan with an Open View Rental via Apartment Therapy.
I love a traditional chair reinterpreted in a non-traditional material.  Typically, I find a wing back chair too heavy and stuffy.  Not so when it's made of acrylic!  I love the airiness of this room.  And check that hanging light.  Too fab.  Lex & Lynn's Not Boxed In via Apartment Therapy.

I still do not own an acrylic furniture either. I drool every time I see it. Most of it is so over priced, even at IKEA.

Hi Jessie! Yes, it is over priced, that's why I don't own a piece. I didn't realize Ikea had any acrylic pieces. I wish we had an Ikea locally!
