A Transparent Approach
Thanks to the Los Angeles-based Shahrooz, acrylic (aka Lucite) is elevated to a new level. The company’s furniture designs — both classic and modern — are inspired by abstract art and nature. All of the offerings feature acrylic contours and touches. Many like to use translucent furniture because it helps to enlarge a room. Adam’s Interiors, 3900 North Federal Highway, Ft.
