This summer is all about Barbie! Here at P.B.R we’re all major Barbie Girls, and you must admit, her life in plastic is fantastic!
Barbie hit the scene in the sixties at the same time another fabulous plastic, lucite, hit the furniture market. It too was an instant hit! It’s light weight and can be molded into any shape imaginable. It’s also open and airy, safer than glass, and extremely durable. But best of all, lucite is modern, ultra-chic and adaptable to many different styles.
We happen to love lucite at P.B.R, so in honor of Barbie and all things plastic, here’s a small curation of some of our favorite vintage lucite pieces available for purchase in our showroom or warehouse today.
Let’s start with this very Barbie-approved dining table with its gleaming Lucite base. This showstopper is big enough to seat six, but visually it won’t take up much space, so it’s perfect for a smaller room. Add upholstered chairs and a colorful rug underneath to highlight the transparency and clean look of this piece.
This glamorous lucite console would pop in any entryway or behind a sofa, and we think its modern, masculine lines would even make Ken giddy. Style it with a pair of bold lamps to really emphasize its high gloss finish.
And speaking of lamps, how cool is this lucite table lamp? This rare, Karl Springer-inspired beauty would sparkle in a bedroom next to your favorite reading chair.
Finally, for the Barbie who loves to party, we have the ultimate game table with tripled lucite legs and a retro linen top. Use this versatile piece for extra seating at a dinner party or for game nights with family and friends.
Just like Barbie, our vintage lucite pieces are quite popular! These statement pieces sell fast, so snatch them up for your own Barbie Dreamhouse while you can.
