MATERIAL OF THE MOMENT: ICY SLEEK LUCITE AND CRYSTAL FINDS

by Marisa Marcantonio

From crystal to lucite, icy cool materials are having a moment right now. Perhaps it is their retro vintage appeal, or the wide variety of creative applications, but the natural and man made materials pack a powerful design punch. Ahead, some sleekly glacial pieces to bring some cold as ice style inside.

Kathryn McCoy Design recently debuted this stunning icy selenite fireplace surround. Wow. Substantial and stately, this piece creates a focal point that will get some admiring stares.

My favorite mirror from Michael S. Smith's collection from Mirror Image, the cut-mirror Southampton has jagged edges and deco details that adds interesting angles
