The workhorse: CB2's Peekaboo tables

My love for lucite knows no bounds. A few seasons back I wished there was more of an array out there, and voila, that time has come. For a long time, CB2's Peekaboo tables were the go-to for many an interior designer.  Their easy - to-live-with waterfall tables are on my apartment essentials list, as you can place them anywhere.  Now, that list of chic basics grows with a few market finds. From bowls to a bevy of cocktail tables, the see-through material that adds a weightless presence is finally widely available. But available does not necessarily translate into easily affordable. Because the material comes from petroleum, the prices make these pieces commitment pieces. But once you have them, you will enjoy their new classic status, and endless versatility.

Alexandra Von Furstenberg's lucite pieces are getting bigger, as her furniture assortment expands. Her acrylic Sledge Coffee table with neon pink detailing

 One of her bestsellers, the Candy Bowl, now come with ink swirls embedded in the clear material

Taking dinner in front of the TV to a chic place, Grace and Blake's foldable table with chrome supports

Design Legacy's rolling Bar Cart is really well done

 The Jacques collection, launched last year by Jonathan Adler, is a crowd-pleaser with brass corner details.
The bi-level table also by Adler could be used behind a sofa to break up the space, or in pairs around a doorway

I spotted this cut-out coffee table at Bernhardt while at High Point Market.  

Paired with a smoky black top, Festoni's lucite table looks Deco-inspired

 Cool and confident, Bernhardt's ball pedestal tabouret Aubrey is uber chic.

Another lucite bowl, the Bel Air, this time with a pop of monochromatic white. Jonathan Adler's version is thick (read heavy) and substantial

Making desk accessories and trays from a rainbow of lucite, Tara Wilson Designs, available through Bespoke Custom Gifts,  mix monograms and shiny surfaces for personalized gifts that go a step further.

Some great pieces here, Marisa, but please don't forget White Webb's Clearly Classic line of acrylic occasional tables. We recently added some great new designs (Alexander Console and Layla table) and introduced a new white color. You can see them all at
