What’s new in décor? The answer is pretty clear.

What’s cooler than infusing a hot color into a design palette? Infusing none! To lighten and visually expand small spaces, emphasize accent colors, and add an ultra-contemporary kick to even the most traditional rooms, clear furniture and décor is enjoying an elegant resurgence from the gaudier ’60s and ’70s. No need to dump your current furnishings; glass and acrylic are best enjoyed in small doses and as tasteful accent pieces. Here are some to get you started.

Hancock & Moore Infinity Chair

Hancock & Moore Infinity Chair
Designed by Alan Price for Hancock & Moore, the Infinity Chair gives the illusion of being suspended in mid-air by two acrylic side arm panels. The seat is upholstered in channel-stitched silver metallic leather and is curved to mirror the human spine’s natural curvature. It’s surprisingly comfortable, and unbelievably chic.

Hubbardton Forge Apothecary Pendant

Hubbardton Forge Apothecary Pendant
Made by hand in Castleton, Vermont, each Hubbardton Forge light fixture has a fresh yet timeless appeal. The Apothecary Pendant is a clever twist on the clear Edison bulb, in that the illumination doesn’t come from the bulb at all. Instead, light trickles down through bulbs recessed into metal canisters into thick, hand-blown hourglass vessels for warm, diffuse illumination. From the company’s New Traditional Collection, this pendant is sure to spark a design trend of its own.
