Lucite Patio Bench

This is a fabulous new design for a lucite patio bench by the talented Jordan Capella in LA. What makes this bench perfect for outdoors is the lucite base and the fabric it is upholstered in, which is a solution dyed acrylic. Many companies are now carrying this type of fabric. I love the modern and fun way in which Jordan has used lucite to create his latest design. Good work Jordan!!

Check out the following web-sites for some companies that carry solution dyed acrylic fabrics for outdoor living. Tip: I sometimes use this type of fabric for indoor upholstery as it is very durable and cleanable.
Good for use in high traffic areas with kids and pets.

  1. Thanks Patricia,

    I can also do the base in a smoked bronze Lucite, which would look stunning.

    Cool looking bench! I'm curious to know more about the outdoor fabric. Does this fabric feel good to the touch or does it feel scratchy? (Other words, would you want to sit on it with bare legs?) Also any thoughts/advice/guidelines about bringing in lucite in to mix with furnishings that are old? I'm drawn to lucite but scared to mix.

  5. Yes you can sit on outdoor fabrics with your bare legs. I look on Lucite as a neutral. You can mix it with anything. Have fun with it.

    Thanks for the advice on lucite! Yes, I do need to take more design risks. ;) If it were a little less expensive, I'd probably be more willing to jump right in. Probably what I'd want made would have to be a custom piece, therefore the scardy-cat factor. I keep seeing some fabulous takes on lucite lately. And I live in a small space (another reason lucite is tempting). I'm thinking lucite dining table base for a round marble top or a lucite long-ish console table for behind a couch.


    Thanks for letting me know about the outdoor fabric. I'm thinking of having an antique daybed that I use as seating in my dining room covered in an outdoor fabric. (Right it's just wrapped in cotton fabric that I wash every once in a while.) I was wondering if outdoor fabric would feel, too, you know, rough and industrial. Glad to know it doesn't feel strange.

  7. Nice job Jordon Capella! Nice clean, classic design.

    Patricia, thanks for the resources on outdoor fabric. I have a patio set that I need to paint(?) and recover. Thanks for the information on something that will be so durable and stand up to the elements.

    Patricia, I love your blog. I did have one question- I love the lamp on your breakfast table and I know you had mentioned it is from Hotel Collection; however I have been unable to find anything by this company- do you know where one might look to find this (or what store carries their products)? Thank you ever so much!

  9. Hi Anon
    I have not been able to find the source for this lamp. When my girlfriend bought it for me..it was a "one of". Sorry I do not have anymore information on it.
