Acrylic Shelves

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Given how much I prattle on about acrylic as an organizational material (I do do that, don’t I?)–

[Quick review session: acrylic is much more substantial, sturdy, and lux as compared to its inferior iteration–plastic, while being less fragile than glass. It helps to constantly achieve a clean look and feel, and, is it’s nearly invisible, it’s ultra cramped-space-friendly.]  

–it’s rather surprising that I haven’t yet divulged to you this earth-shaker: 

It’s possible to get your daily dose of acrylic in the form of shelving.

Check it (don’t wreck it):

I’m finding myself quite infatuated with the concept currently.

Because they’re mainly structural due to the lack of color etc., acrylic shelves feel edgy; sleek, and also simultaneously melts away into the wall behind, showcasing whatever items they’re storing.

    Isn’t acrylic easily scratched? The lucite/acrylic wedding presents I got looked very awful very quickly.
