Still Loving: Lucite Coffee Tables

It’s one trend that’s not going anywhere (thankfully)

I’ve been spotting this stunning lucite coffee table in magazines and blogs and friends’ houses, and found myself lusting (again) after a lucite coffee table of my own. Browsing around, of course one would be led to The Paris Apartment, and one would be completely enamored by their selection!

But at $2900+, I was relieved when a friend told me she scored hers at Wisteria for a much more wallet-friendly price. (And even more afforable, score one for $600 at PreviewMod.com.)

Has this table been around forever or what? Is it time to move on? I’m not totally sure, especially when one sees these pretty pics…

These were my thoughts as I stumbled upon this roundup from the September 2005 issue of Domino on Chateau de Lu. Amazing to me that these pieces are still so relevant. (Equally and perhaps more amazing that Domino is not around to make this point. Sigh.)

Want to get a little more spendy? There are so many great vintage options on sites like 1stdibs.com…

Even though I have Lucite lamps, and candlesticks, and a tray, and a magazine stand, I’m still loving Lucite, how ’bout you?

  1. I will never tire of lucite. I think it is a classic staple, as long as it is thick and heavy and well made. While you may score a bargain on the cb2, I don’t think it looks as rich and you will tire of it more quickly than the others. I will never give up my lucite!

    1. So true — I struggle with the fact that I should probably just pick one major furniture piece to be lucite and there are just so many good options out there!

  2. love love love lucite and this post~ was thinking of getting a coffee table but don’t think I could handle the constant muckiness of little fingerprints and yogurt smeared all over!! would probably send me to a mental home! ha ha ha

  3. I think Lucite is becoming a classic; it goes with everything and makes a room appear “bigger” than it is b/c of the transparency; I have a few lucite decor items but opted for the glass version of the waterfall table as it doesn’t scratch as easily and I love it of course!

  4. Have you seen the lucite waterfall table on ebay? It’s a great price and the comments are great about the product–all rate the table very high.

  5. I love lucite coffee tables! I have one!… and I swear I was looking for images for my Mondays post about “My cb2 lucite coffee table” and then found this amazing post! … I have some images that you didn’t post so I think I will post them as I planned, but please don’t think I copied! it will be just about MY cb2 coffee table.. not many different kinds of lucite tables :) happy almost friday!

  6. Do you know who has a waterfall table that is only l2″ W and 20″H? It could be done in
    clear glass or clear Lucite. The glass or
    acrylic should be approx. l/2″ thick.
    I have a glass one like that & want another one that same size. Thank you.

  7. Hi there, I am from Canada and am trying to find retailers who sell Lucite Acrylic Side tables and am having a hard time. Any idea where I can buy them from?

  8. You should use distinct colored icing, or else you may possibly also acquire Halloween cookie and cake developing kits on the nearby craft shop which can be full of enjoyable formed sprinkles, precolored frostings,
    and adornments which you could add. You will have
    a much lower fat content as you trim more fat for the drying
    process, and also avoid MSG, sodium and other byproducts that are ingredients in commercially made jerky.
    And since each cookie cup is baked in its own little wrapper,
    they’re ideal for bake sales and party trays.

  9. I truly lov your website.. Exceellent colors & theme. Did you develop this site yourself?
    Please reply back aas I’m planning to create my own personal website
    and want to know where you got this from or what
    the theme is named. Kudos!
