You may call it acrylic, or even Plexiglass, but I prefer Lucite. It is common to find this plastic resin used a lot in vintage furniture, jewellery and accessories. However, this trend, towards transparent furniture, is increasing in popularity. In fact, it was reported that Blue Ivy Carter (daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z) lays her head in a $3500 lucite crib. But, be it old age, or new age, I don't really care because I love Lucite.
