With Christmas just behind us, thoughts turn to spring and that often means some interior restyling. Interior design trend spotters believe acrylic furniture will continue to be a trend setter & acrylic tables will find a place in many design schemes.
Earlier in 2015, leading US interior bloggers The Well Appointed House concluded
“One of the most stand-out trends this year was… acrylic everything: …tables, acrylic lamps, bar carts & boxes…the list goes on and on. While the…“look” has been on trend for several seasons now, it seems to have emerged as an even bigger trend this year.”
And House Beautiful’s Scot Meacham Wood loved acrylic furniture’s versatility stating “contrast is actually what I most like about the idea of adding it to your home.”
Acrylic Tables for Every Home
As Scot confirms, one of the great advantages of acrylic furniture is its ability to work with almost any interior design scheme. Of course, it’s a natural choice for modernist & minimalist design schemes favoured by urban architects but it also has a place mixed with vintage furniture and also works well with traditional design schemes.
As well as looking great, acrylic also brings many practical advantages. Clear acrylic makes the most of light & space in any room – perfect when light is plentiful as in a loft apartment, but also brilliant when light is more limited in, say, cozy country cottages. Mixed with antique furniture and traditional fabrics, acrylic tables add appeal without detracting from the overall scheme.
Additionally, an acrylic table can be used across a number of differently styled rooms without looking out of place; what starts as a smart addition to the traditionally-themed living room can also be used in an achingly trendy kid’s room or a practical home office or study.
Easy clean acrylic is practical & affordable
Maintaining acrylic’s pristine look is not difficult. Avoid harsh chemical cleaners and return to good old fashioned warm water and a non-abrasive cloth are probably all you’ll ever need. If the surface becomes exceptionally dirty or gritty, ‘rinse’ the surface first by lightly swabbing a saturated cloth over the surface and allowing surfacants to drain away. Avoid rubbing dirt or grit into the surface. Turn the cloth often and replace with a clean cloth frequently. Dry by blotting gently with a clean dry cloth.
The most important acrylic furniture trend for 2017 is its continued exceptional value. As with most furniture ranges, it is very easy to spend £000s of designed items but it is also just as easy to spend less than a £100 on a UK-manufactured item of excellent quality, made from high quality material from expert makers with almost 50 years’ experience in acrylic manufacturing.
