These transparent modern acrylic chairs, with bucket- or shell-shaped seats, were made in a style similar to the popular retro Eames design. Sold here as a set of two, the bases are stainless steel wire in a triangular hairpin-like "Eiffel "style.
This S-shaped acrylic piece is as much a sculpture as it is a chair. The fluidly modern slide-style seat stands all on its own.
This pretty single-piece transparent Lucite chair has a hexagonal pattern all along the back. The geometric honeycomb-design touch adds zip while maximizing visual space.
This transparent acrylic dining chair (or side chair) is shiny on top and shiny on the bottom, thanks to clear plastic and legs of mirror-like chrome. A ribbed line design runs through the plastic vertically, adding a little more liveliness to the luster.
This clear acrylic stool is simple, but with its 25.75-inch height, it might be just the thing you need for a breakfast bar or other raised counter. Bonus: It's sturdy enough that it's rated even for commercial use.
Here's a country-style chair design, given an entirely new look and feel by being created entirely of transparent polycarbonate plastic.
Designed in Italy, this beautiful semi-formal polycarbonate chair has an oval seat back and curved sides. It's available in an uncolored transparent version as well as a sunglasses-style grey smoke color.
These four clear acrylic dining chairs can be used inside or out. With a little bit of a Louis XVI feel, the design is more traditional than some other chairs, which gives them a unique combination of modern and classic style. Each "ghost chair" is made of a single piece of molded polycarbonate, so there's no assembly required.
If you want to get fancy in the King Louis XV kind of way, these see-through armchairs may be exactly what you're looking for. Because of the arms, they're not stackable - but they're also pretty enough to be left out all the time anyway.
WIth a creative cut-out design on the back and seat of this crystalline chair, look for light to shine off its many facets! The back is a bit lower than that of some similar pieces, so check the measurements before you buy one or more of these stackable chairs.
This sleek set of two low-back barstools can be adjusted to just the right height for you. The low backs and slightly slanted fronts make the seats more comfortable than you'd expect plastic to be.
Here's one way to make the ubiquitous folding chair look like something stylish: make it transparent (with a little bit of chrome).
Wild space-age furniture like this retro round swinging acrylic chair was super trendy in the sixties. (Like it? Check out a few other color options at Walmart.) Shown here with the optional stand.
For all the dos and don’ts to keep your shiny and clear acrylic chairs looking spectacular, always check the manufacturer’s instructions.
