Now that our new sofa has arrived (I’ll post more about my search on that) I’m out to find the perfect coffee table to go with my new look with also keeping in mind my small budget.
I knew I definitely wanted a clear table because our space is so small I didn’t want another heavy piece of furniture.
I was actually originally going to buy a glass table off craigslist and paint the base but then I saw this
Never seen them? Same here until a couple of months ago..who knew!
Here’s a little info about them from zenedy
The Lucite Coffee Table
Despite it’s very modern appearance, Lucite is not a new addition to the furniture industry. Found also in the fashion and home décor markets, Lucite has actually been around for decades, and some of the most sought after pieces are not, in fact, new, but rather vintage antiques from the mid-1900’s. The sleek appearance of Lucite coffee tables make them stand out, but what truly appeals to most people is the way that they visually expand the space. Since Lucite coffee tables are clear or merely tinted, they provide the functionality of the coffee tables, without the appearing to subtract space.
Anyways after I fell in love I realized these babies aren’t cheap. They go for about $500 to $5,000!
But I was determined to find some options in budget so here’s what I came up with
Overstock not to fond of this design…I’m not convinced on the magazine racks. yuck! Funny thing is I actually saw this one in person when I went to pick up my cane back chairs from some chick off craigslist. It surprisingly looks way WAY better in person.
I even found this one, not a Lucite but still gorgeous.
So what do you think? Do you have a favorite?
