Lovely Lucite

I've always loved vanity tables and when I moved into a new place this year decided that I needed one so the hunt began, and in looking for the perfect vanity through old magazines, blogs, books, etc. I also discovered my obsession with all things Lucite. This vanity is what I was pining away for but alas it was out of my price range (a common dilemma these days) but at least it served as inspiration. The Lucite vanity in this picture lead me to discover the famous Waterfall Table shape which was perfect. I found that CB2 had a great and affordable line of Lucite products and now I want to use them all! I ended up getting this one that they show as a bar table and then hanging the mirror-framed mirror from West Elm above it and it turned out surprisingly well! Now my next territory to conquer with these wonderfully neutral pieces is the living room. One of the great things about Lucite is since it's clear it doesn't appear to take up much room keeping smaller areas looking less cluttered. I'd love to get a few of these boxes as well (also from CB2) to fill with pretty books and back-issues of Domino (RIP.) I have also been on the hunt for a cute lucite stool or vanity seat to upholster - I love how Lucite mixes well with all types of patterns and fabrics also. Obviously it goes well with anything mod but looks really great with florals and toiles as well to somewhat contrast the modern feel it gives - the vanity above from Domino is a good example with the antiqued mirror.
