Once perceived as purely kitsch, acrylic has become a trendy material for either upping the edge of a contemporary dining room or lending a playful juxtaposition in a more traditional space. In more than 20 dining areas, these Dering Hall designers creatively paired acrylic/lucite chairs with unique accessories and a range of materials, including marble, wood, and metal, to deliver standout designs.
