Amanda Nisbet covered a chocolate-finish Somerset Bay dining table with an acrylic top to step up the allure of her Lucite cube stools.
"Amanda liked the idea of relating to the sea," Bailey explains, "but with brighter, a little more punched-up colors." Instead of wielding a calm sea- or sky-blue palette, Nisbet introduced brilliant bursts of peacock blue in the living and dining areas. That hue, in silk on the Lucite dining stools, triggers a tart visual rush that dissolves into deliciousness, like the first bite into a sour-apple gum ball. "Plus, I love that little bit of elegance you get with Lucite," says the designer.
