The workhorse: CB2's Peekaboo tables
My love for lucite knows no bounds. A few seasons back I wished there was more of an array out there, and voila, that time has come. For a long time, CB2's Peekaboo tables were the go-to for many an interior designer. Their easy - to-live-with waterfall tables are on my apartment essentials list, as you can place them anywhere. Now, that list of chic basics grows with a few market finds. From bowls to a bevy of cocktail tables, the see-through material that adds a weightless presence is finally widely available. But available does not necessarily translate into easily affordable. Because the material comes from petroleum, the prices make these pieces commitment pieces. But once you have them, you will enjoy their new classic status, and endless versatility.

The Jacques collection, launched last year by Jonathan Adler, is a crowd-pleaser with brass corner details.
The bi-level table also by Adler could be used behind a sofa to break up the space, or in pairs around a doorway
I spotted this cut-out coffee table at Bernhardt while at High Point Market.
Paired with a smoky black top, Festoni's lucite table looks Deco-inspired
Cool and confident, Bernhardt's ball pedestal tabouret Aubrey is uber chic.
Another lucite bowl, the Bel Air, this time with a pop of monochromatic white. Jonathan Adler's version is thick (read heavy) and substantial
Making desk accessories and trays from a rainbow of lucite, Tara Wilson Designs, available through Bespoke Custom Gifts, mix monograms and shiny surfaces for personalized gifts that go a step further.
With spring comes new babies and the need for great baby gifts. So many friends have just had stork deliveries or have them on the way. When I came across this brightly colored geometric needlepoint Hand Sanitizer Cozy, I knew Jonathan Adler had created a winner. The cover slips over the hand sanitizer bottle adding instant style to an otherwise drab nursery necessity. They also make nice gifts to ward off the ever-present flu germs that have been in wide circulation this winter. Either way, every home could benefit from a dash of style when it comes to germ maintenance.
