Acrylic the Hot New IT Material in Design
Okay I admit acrylic furniture isn’t what you would typically find on the showroom floor of your favorite home furnishings store. Actually, you probably associate acrylic furniture with funky artsy-phartsy interiors depicted in Mod style movies but there has been a gradual trend in the home furnishings industry to warmly embrace acrylic as a viable and now inexpensive alternative to wood.
