Think acrylic furniture for an ultra-modern space-age vibe

The clear and glossy molded acrylic (also known as Lucite or Plexiglas) was a trendy space-age finish that — even today — guarantees someone will want to take a closer look!

For furniture, acrylic has been mostly replaced by its cousin, polycarbonate — often favored for its strength. But it still retains the sleek, retro-modern look you might like to incorporate into your current-day MCM decor.

Here are 12 options you can still buy today!
