Why the Lucite Chair Is a Game-Changer for Small Spaces

 One of the hottest trends in home decor these days is the upsurge in popularity of modern dining room chairs. If you check the latest home decorating magazines or watch the home renovation television shows you will notice that more and more people are turning to cool and funky chairs for their dining rooms.

Ghost chairs in dining room

When you live in a small apartment, there’s a good deal of wizardry that has to take place. You have to learn how to fit your extensive wardrobe (and shoe collection) into a tiny closet; make all of your specialty pantry supplies (five kinds of flour, really?) find a home in your cupboard; and then make your space feel as open and welcoming as possible.

That’s why I’m such a fan of the visual trickery that is the lucite chair. You’ve probably seen them in all those high-end design magazines and sites. Think: the Louis Ghost Chair, which can get very pricey, very quickly, although there are more affordable options out there if you do a little digging. But before you start on that bargain hunt, take a look at these eight examples of how they can make your small space look and feel more expansive.

  • Light and Bright Dining Area - Kate Marker Interiors: When your dining area blends right into your living area and kitchen, like in a studio, this light and bright space shows how clean and open this clear seating can make the space feel.
  • Side Chairs - Apartment Therapy: Make the chairs on the long sides of your table disappear so you can focus on larger and more decorative seats at the head of the table.
  • Colorful Upgrade - Oh Joy: Even with the addition of some color and pattern, these chairs still feel lighter and brighter than a solid chair would.
  • Dining Nook - Refinery 29: Not only does this small dining nook in a D.C. apartment have chairs that vanish before your very eyes, but the owner also added a mirror to make the space seem more expansive than it really is.
