Lucite Coffee Tables

Lucite for a coffee table? Lucite is an eye-catching and unique see-through material for furniture in tight spaces. You might be questioning my sanity, but choosing a coffee table with lucite has many advantages. Lucite is easy to clean with simply warm soapy water and a soft cloth. Unlike glass, it does not scratch very easily. The sturdy acrylic is commonly used in clear, sleek designs that bring additional brightness into rooms. When clear, lucite allows more light to pass through, which makes a room feel more open.

As fantastic as lucite is, it can be a struggle to find quality products online. I’ve collected some of my favorite coffee tables from some of my favorite trusted vendors so you can avoid scouring product pages and reviews. I’ve included a variety of costs to accommodate any budget.

All you have to do is sit back, scroll through, and purchase your perfect acrylic see-through lucite coffee table.

Lucite Coffee Tables

Simply Sleek // Lucite Waterfall Coffee Table

This is the most simple design for a lucite coffee table. This affordable option is ¾” thick to reinforce its durability. The rounded corners make this modern table suit any style or size of room. It’s so sleek that you’ll hardly notice that it’s there.

Mix and Match // Stainless-Steel and Lucite Coffee Table
Strange DNA Harper

The stainless steel frame sets this lucite coffee table apart from the rest. The contrast gives the table a modern touch without adding bulk to the design. This table would look great in an industrial living room with a cooler color palette.

Most Affordable
Chrome Accents // Chrome and Lucite Coffee Table
Signature Design by Ashley

The chrome legs and frame on this table add a graceful element to the otherwise modern design. I like that the heavily bolted legs also make the table appear more substantial than one that is all lucite. This table would work well in a room with great lighting to create additional reflections off of the chrome.

Solid and Clear Combination
Inspired Home

This solid lucite table provides ample storage space for those knick-knacks that normally crowd your coffee table. I like that the clear acrylic and stainless steel legs maintain a modern feel although it is a more traditional design. Its adaptable style can fit any room.

Modern Edges

The curvy legs of this coffee table provide more than just a beautiful design accent – they also can store magazines and books. I love a product that is unique in style while remaining functional. This table achieves both with grace.

Stackable Storage

These classic tables stack to provide convenient surfaces for entertaining without taking up limited space on a daily basis. The clear lucite makes the two tables seem even more compact when stacked. Since both tables are freestanding, there is a lot of room for creative designs.

Gilded in Gold // Lucite and Brass Coffee Table

This chic coffee table would look fantastic in a living room with more traditional decor and furniture. Its sharp angles and sleek design would balance out a busier, more plush space. The gold can modernize your living room and is a perfect tone for any color palette.

Pristine and Clean // Lucite Leg Coffee Table

This table is ideal to brighten and add space to a traditional living room. The acrylic legs paired with the mirrored shelf and glass top allow light to reflect from every part of the table, making your room appear larger than it really is. A room with some natural lighting achieves this best.

Sharp Edges
Rotsen Furniture

The sharp corners of this coffee table make the already modern lucite feel even edgier. The clean lines and simple design allow this table to fit into any style of living room, but I would use it to create a more contemporary look. Avoid clutter on this one – it would ruin the style!

A Splash of Color // Purple Lucite Coffee Table
Butler Specialty Company

If you like a more eclectic and bright design, this table is for you. It follows the classic curved design of other lucite tables but is available in a translucent purple as well as the regular clear. It would look great as an accent piece or as part of a bold, colorful space.

Most Expensive
Well Rounded // Waterfall Rounded Acrylic Coffee Table

This coffee table takes the traditional curved edges of lucite tables a step further. I like the unique look of the legless design, and that it did not sacrifice stability for appearance. It would soften a sharp, modern space without taking away from a contemporary design.

Edgy Accents // Square Lucite Coffee Table
Gusto Design Collection & MC Interior Design

This geometric design would make an excellent focal point for a minimalist living room. Its maze-like appearance will draw attention and maintain a modern space. My favorite element is the glass panel legs because of their unique layout.

Modern Favorite
Modern Wood // Karine Modern Lucite Coffee Table
Gusto Design Collection & MC Interior Design

I love the combination of rustic and modern design in this piece. The wood would look beautiful in a room that incorporates natural elements and metals. They would also double as a nice foot rest for those lazy lounging moments!

Most Unique
Basket Case // Mid Century Lucite Coffee Table

This unique option would look great in a space with a darker palette. The basket design doubles as storage for a classy TV tray that you want available but out of the way. I like that this coffee table has more than one color option and is stackable.

Most Dynamic
Secret Storage
Wade Logan®

This solid acrylic table offers three layers of hidden storage. As I’ve mentioned, I love functional style, and this small coffee table absolutely nails it. I also like that it comes in a color palette that can work with any living room design.

Corners Count // Lucite and Brass Coffee Table
Jonathan Adler

This square coffee table has minimal accents where they count. The brass adds a glamorous element that makes the modern lucite feel more luxurious. This table would look best in a smaller space with solid bold colors due to its size and shape.

Clearly Classy
Wade Logan®

This table truly brings together the best of glass and lucite. Its solid elements are highly reflective, so it is ideal for a more traditional and small living room.

Oval Options // Oval Acrylic Coffee Table
Orren Ellis

This table steps away from the classic angular lucite coffee table. The acrylic legs allow light to pass through while still looking chic. I would place this table in a contemporary living room to bring in an element of comfort that warms the space.

Roll It Out
Willa Arlo Interiors

Here is another option that is useful for entertaining guests. This multi-level coffee table can be wheeled out of sight when you aren’t using it or brought around the room to suit the situation. I like that the wheels are stainless steel and don’t take away from the sleek design.

Circular Clarity // Round Lucite Coffee Table
Christopher Knight Home

This round coffee table can bring class into any living space. The table legs are my favorite element of the whole piece. They are square rather than round, which keeps this table feeling modern. It offers plenty of surface area without appearing to take up too much space.


Choosing the Right Acrylic Coffee Table

Lucite is a brand name for a thick plastic often used in furniture. Much like Kleenex is a type of tissue, lucite is a type of acrylic. It is more durable than glass, and its plastic flexibility allows for a greater amount of artistic freedom when designing.

I have used lucite in both its clear and solid forms for many modern designs. I like to use it in living rooms as the coffee table to add a surface and storage without making the room feel cramped. This is especially helpful in spaces that already lean toward feeling crowded.

How Large Is Your Living Room?

Before you purchase your lucite coffee table, there is more to consider than budget and availability. First, it is essential that you measure the space you will have your coffee table. You need to know just how much of your living room you want your table to take up. If it’s too large, it doesn’t matter how much space your table appears to make.

How Much Storage Do You Need?

Although lucite tables help a room appear larger and brighter, sadly, it doesn’t actually create more space. If you live in a small apartment, you will want a small table, preferably with additional storage space. If you have a larger living room, you can consider storage for stylistic purposes, or if you want extra space to hide your clutter.

How Is Your Living Room Designed?

Also consider the design of your living room, especially if you are not purchasing your coffee table as part of a larger renovation. I always think about the color palette of the walls as well as the furniture. If you have a living room that has multiple busy patterns, you’re better off with a table with a simple, sleek design. If your room has bold, solid colors, a table with a metallic or colorful accent would brighten your space even further.

How Do You Want Your Living Room Designed?

Your personal design tastes are, of course, the most important aspect when purchasing. Look at the other furniture in your living room if you’re unsure what exactly your individual tastes are. If your style is more traditional, consider a lucite table with traditional elements to add a modern but comfortable twist to your space. If your home has a more contemporary design, you can try a solid lucite table as a bold statement piece.

Acrylic & Lucite Coffee Tables

Adding a lucite coffee table to your living room can not only give the illusion of more space and light, it can also be a chic design choice. The durable acrylic table comes in a variety of options that can suit the size of your home, the design of your living room, and your personal style. These modern tables will draw the attention and compliments of your guests with their unique, attention-catching designs.

As you design your living room with your lucite table, there are several factors to consider. This list will hopefully help guide you closer to a modern coffee table that will take your living room to the next level of style. Happy designing, and as always, I’d love to help you over your design hurdles along the way! Leave your questions in the comments and we’ll work together to solve your lucite struggles.
