To me beauty is a little bit imperfect. A little bit broken. A little bit of a mess. Ultimately, beauty is something that is real and timeless.
So, when it comes to trends, I tune out.
But... there are a few things that are hot right now but I think I will always love.
In particular, lucite.
|lamps / bar cart / file / chair / coffee table / set of chairs|
The clear, or sometimes tinted, acrylic that is on chairs, tables, housewares--even the frames of my new eyeglasses--was first developed in the 1930s.
I loooove this look and the wide-ranging price points for it. In fact, did you know Staples now sells lucite chairs?? At less than $20 a pop compared to Phillippe Starck's Louis ghost chair which starts at $410, these are totally worth the investment.
Now check it out in these rooms!

Using the ghost chairs updates the otherwise classic feel of the room.
