You’re Being Benched….
What we love most about a Lucite bench is its ability to add quiet glamour and make a bold statement. The use of an architectural, clear acrylic bench or settee completely answers that challenge. Today, many people are moving into smaller homes or face challenges with small rooms and they turn to clear Lucite benches for additional seating. When you add a Lucite bench to a hallway or mudroom, instant sparkle and shine light up the space. So many of my interior design clients ask for a transparent bench at the end of their bed or in their foyer, to warm up a space or make a modern statement. Clear Acrylic is the perfect material to create a bench that is light in footprint yet sturdy and strong. Best of all, the Lucite bench choices are endless….leather upholstered Lucite benches, fur and faux fur topped acrylic benches and more.
Let’s start with the most fashion forward and work from there…..a fabulous charcoal grey Tibetan fur bench with crystal clear acrylic legs! If you’re not into fur, but still want a luxurious, glamorous look, try a more tailored, metal and Lucite settee. With brilliant metal accents and a plush velvet seat, benches like this are transitional in style. For the true Lucite collectors, you cannot beat the iconic Lucite Waterfall bench. Like a true legend, it started out strong and just gets better and better. Our Clear Lucite Waterfall Bench is made with 3/4" thick acrylic with "waterfall" rounded corners, making it soft yet modern. This is a minimal, contemporary bench, perfect for genuine lucite collectors.

Lucite, a technical umbrella term for clear acrylic material, is so perfect for benches and settees because it is durable, sturdy yet chic. Lucite allows light to pass through and offers the allure of glass construction without the danger of being shattered. Lucite is also heat resistant so feel free to place your thick Lucite bench in front of your fireplace and enjoy the juxtaposition of the cool acrylic mixed with the warmth of your fireplace. What could be more inviting than that?
