While this table is not exclusively for dudes, it would look totally kick-ass and at home in a bachelor pad. And while I definitely do understand any hesitation to spend a grand on a table (as opposed to, say, the newest Apple product), remember that women notice these things (and everything else). The polished aluminum will wear well and be resistant to feet up, bottles on, spilled over..

Lucite is often used as a light or shatter-resistant alternative to glass. I find it most useful as a wood alternative and space saver.
Wood is the ubiquitous material for furniture- tables, chairs, dressers, beds, consoles, wood dominates this particular market. But a room full of wood is boring, so I am always looking for and championing different materials. Lucite, mainly as tables and accessories, is an ideal, inexpensive and modern way to start peeking out from underneath a mountain of wood.
Its secondary attribute is a space saver. This material (like glass) carries no visual weight, so small spaces don’t have to be compromised. Here are some of my favorite examples of lucite in action-
Coffee table or console.

Searching, finding and deciding on a coffee table can be a frustrating experience. It always has been for me. While it may not appear to be, this table is, apart from your sofa, the most important piece of furniture in a living room. It needs to be functional (fits the space, effectively displays beautiful and interesting items) and practical (a temporary storage space for a cocktail or plate). It also needs to be stylish, as the one piece of furniture people gather around, look at, and use. This table (from Crate & Barrel’s more affordable line, CB2), perfectly embodies the contrast that defines the Mile High Style aesthetic: place a vase of flowers on top and pair it with an antique sofa.
