{Trending} Lucite + Rustic

I love a good contrast, and what contrasts better than crystal clear Lucite with rustic textures??

Lucite is coming back -- did it ever go away? -- but a new trend has it being paired with rustic, earthy woods, giving a warmth to this starkly clean, modern material.
Lucite has been around for a long while, and I would say it was mostly seen in residential design with this chair:

Other designers jumped on that bandwagon and created other "ghost" chairs, and from there tables and accessories followed suit.

Enjoying a Piece of Humble Pie

Funny how epiphanies reveal themselves at perfect moments.

Especially life-related epiphanies.

Especially life-related epiphanies that have you choking on humble pie.  Well, ok, not really choking...maybe more like the "trying-real-hard-to-swallow-that-huge-lump-in-your-throat" piece of humble pie.

Somewhere along the line in my life, I developed a personality trait that can be a good thing, but also a really bad thing.  I strive for perfection.  And I don't mean I just try my very best at everything I do (even though I do), but I try my very best to be perfect at everything I do.  And when I'm not, I feel like a complete and total failure.
