Obsession: Ghost Furniture

14 Sep

I just read a little article in October’s Glamour magazine (with Lea Michele from Glee on the cover — love!) about haunted houses and ghosts…

…which of course reminded me of another decorating obsession of mine…GHOST FURNITURE!

This plastic or acrylic furniture has caught my eye in dozens of magazines and blogs that I’ve been looking at lately. Although the furniture sports clean lines and has the minimalistic feel of a modern style, it can easily be incorporated into almost any type of room.

Here are a few trends I have noticed though:

1. Many acrylic coffee tables are placed on top of fur or animal print rugs — the type of rug or carpeting that you would want to be able to see through the table (hence the clear plastic).

2. The ghost chairs are usually chosen as a single piece to partner with a desk.

3. Adding upholstered cushions of your choice can give the acrylic chairs a softer, more traditional look and feel.

Check these trends and more out below…

WHERE TO BUY

My only issue with these awesome pieces is that they don’t come easy or cheap. I have been searching the internet and keeping my eyes peeled in stores lately for some great deals on these table tops and chairs. I haven’t found very many, but the few I have are expensive. Check out these sites below to see what’s out there, and please let me know if you find any better deals! Enjoy!
