The iconic ghost chair by designer Phillipe Starcke a modern take on the Louis XVI armchair. Borrowing the shape and style of the the French classic and reimagining it in a totally new material using a clear acrylic material.
This chair is such classic for so many reasons! Because of it’s style it fits in well with a modern or a more traditional style interior. For something that is made out of clear acrylic in definitely catches your eye. Use the ghost chair to make a statement or to avert your attention to another feature in the room. And of course it’s a great option for small spaces as it has a light appearance and any natural light that comes through won’t be blocked.
Here are some amazing interior inspiration ideas using the ghost chair. I’ve also put in some other styles of chairs in the acrylic because the ghost chair and even the dupes can be a bit on the pricey side! And just for some variety as there are a few reasons why using a lucite chair might work well for a room in your home…
I love how the silhouettes of the ghost chairs around the traditional pedestal dining table melt away. It’s such a contrast of materials with the dark wood colour central to the ring of clear chairs around it. The chairs literally lightens up the classic interior with a unexpected playfulness. It gives the dining area a cool edge.
These acrylic chairs tuck right under the dining table which is great if you’re tight on space. The chairs are made are bit more comfortable and hygge esque with the felt cushion pads and faux throws padding the seats.
This dining room has more than enough room to go with a heavier style chair. They’ve used the arm style at the ends and without arms down the length of the table. However the ghost chairs still seem appropriate to use as they almost disappear and leads your eye up the high ceiling with the stunning vertigo light fixture.
Opt for lucite barstools in the kitchen if you want keep a clean and streamlined look. The lucite stools are so practical for around the kitchen because they’re totally wipeable.
If you need a chair for sitting down to do your makeup then make it a ghost chair. It’s pretty, stylish and will minimize the space taken up. Adding the ghost chair helps take the Ikea furniture up a notch as well.
Another practical and modern solution to use a lucite chair when having to combine multiple uses into one room like this office space in the bedroom. The less furniture it looks like you have the better that space will work for you.
The ghost chairs come in colour tints as well. So if you’re wanting a lucite for the practicality aspect but don’t want it to go too unnoticed then choose a hint of colour to tie it in to the rest of your room.
Style your empty corner with a barely there but there chair and pull out from the corner when extra seats are needed.
These lucite accent chairs have a seat cushion so they’re not completely transparent but that just makes the chair that much more interesting, quirky not to mention comfortable. I love how the shape compliments the other curved furniture in the room. Quite a contemporary living room space but still easily able to relax!
