Am I Coming In Clear?

Take it from  Madge  in this 2005 Versace ad :

You want some lucite and acrylic furniture in your home. In huge doses it borders on tacky, but in the right context, adding a touch of the hard clear stuff is a great way to add some retro playfulness to your design scheme.


Lucite and acrylic are especially great for small spaces as they don't take up a lot of visual room. The clear pieces dissolve into the atmosphere, allowing you to focus on other design elements in the room. The unobstructed view gives the impression of openness while still providing function and style.

Thanks Jessica! Glad you like our (Aaron R Thomas) work! We did Madge's Acrylic in the Versace Ad, too. (+BTW: I'm originally from New Orleans and quite familiar with the Pat O's Hurricane. Infamous! your "light" version sounds delicious. Maybe you should call it the Squall.

Love it all! Only Versace could pull that off, but it looks fabulous!

I'd appreciate if you can give me some feedback on our site:

I realize that you are home decor-modern design connoisseur :) I'd like to hear your opinion/feedback on our products. Also, it'd be swell if you can place our tulip chair link on your blog.

Thank you,
