And now, to further tell the tale of me and Rachel's shopping adventures this past weekend... We were in IKEA when we came across their TOBIAS chair. All I could think about was Tobias Funke and if there was a set of chairs called the "GOBIAS" (as in, "go buy us a cup of coffee"). Rachel looked at it and said, "That'd be the WORST chair to sit on in a bikini."
Can't argue with that. But even though it puts the user at risk of a "pressed ham" (DON'T Google that), clear Lucite chairs and other pieces of furniture can look really great, and work well in a TAA. They blend into the background, allowing you to put the focus on other pieces in your home, they go with everything, and they let light through and brighten up any dark and dusty corner.

Many of these pieces marry a traditional silhouette with a modern material, so it works if you've got an old-world home, or if you're already working with something more mod. Lucite does seem to have its disadvantages, though: it'd show dust pretty quick, and it's prone to scratching. But if you don't mind an occasional wipedown with a soft cloth (that's what she said), have at it!
