I'm in the clear...

see, my search is over for the right console table to put in front of my picture window...I'm going Lucite, and that's all there is to it...

(Home of Monique Lhuillier, featured in Elle Decor)

see I want the drapes to be a big feature but need a console to go in front...so what perfect material to work with then Lucite (similar style above)..I think this material can create a nice balance to various pieces that might have more weight to them...But Lucite in general can be a nice feature, you don't want to over do it...but, one way to go is lighting, it can look so classic..I could see this pair of lamps from Pieces as key part to a great tablescape...

In a post by Jennifer she features Amy Fine Collins' apartment and this fun Lucite chair; a perfect fit, don'tcha think?...

Lucite trays are hot lil items, here this one separates from the table for serving which you can find through La Moderne...


I'm crazy about this idea, a piece within a piece...featured at the OMD Showhouse, this space is designed by Vanessa De Vargas and you can find a similar coffee table is available at her showroom...

in keeping with yesterday's "Moroccan" theme, these White Webb Lucite side tables are available through Hollyhock...

and last I love this little set up from SoSylvie's shop Blossom Home, it's probably glass but could work for Lucite as well...

Can you let us know where you get the console from. I have been searching for the right sized lucite console and think I may have to have it made.

Sure thing, but it probably won't be for a while since I'm still in the planning phase...

I think Lucite tables r the best of the bunch. They look nice and you dont get bored of them easily. They also dont overwhelm your interior.

I say go for the console.

lucite is the way to go in front of a window (and that cb2 number is such a bargain)!
