While materials such as glass, marble and copper will always reign in the interior design world, acrylics are also working their way into Spring 2017’s décor trends. For anyone looking for an alternative to more expensive furnishings, accent pieces crafted out of this synthetic polymer can look surprisingly elegant. For the season ahead, translucent and trendy acrylic is being re-imagined as a staple for the living room. In stark contrast to the dated, tacky Lucite of yesterday, contemporary acrylic can easily complete your decorating statement. Here are a few ways to get the look at home today.
Upgrade a neutral living room with acrylic railings: If your space is currently an understated sight with plush grey sofas and beige walls, try accenting the soft neutrals with an acrylic banister rail. Meanwhile, abstract artwork and a series of violet and silver accent cushions can bring a hint of springtime into your room.

Transform a rustic space with an acrylic and wood table: As an understated trend, acrylic furniture can instantly bring a moderate and modern effect to any space. To decorate a living room which is currently bedecked with shaggy furs and creamy sheer curtains, use a dining table with a wooden top and acrylic legs. The juxtaposition of crystal clear acrylic and dark wood creates a glamorous look.

Contrast an acrylic coffee table with grey and white décor: There’s nothing quite like the look of a minimalist living room, and acrylics can perfectly flatter a dove grey and off-white theme. Turn to a white armchair and soft grey sofas, with a shaggy ivory ottoman for a finishing touch. Add a clear acrylic coffee table with a funky, structural shape, and prepare to host your guests in style this spring.
