How To: Care for Your Acrylic and Polycarbonate Furniture

By Sklar Furnishings

Designer Tips and How to Guides

June 19, 2017

Whether colored or clear, acrylic and polycarbonate furnishings are enjoying a major fashion moment. On their own these pieces are fun and contemporary, but they also work beautifully in transitional style homes; pieces like the Louis Ghost Chair explicitly combine classic shapes with this most modern of materials with refreshing results.

Cleaning Acrylic
Acrylic and polycarbonate may be durable, but maintaining that glossy surface in top condition still requires a little knowledge. Begin cleaning by sweeping off any loose dust or debris. Use warm, soapy water and a soft sponge or microfiber cleaning cloth to gently wash the surface, then rinse with clean water and allow your furniture to air dry in a well-ventilated area.

What Not To Do
Never use Windex or any other glass cleaner that contains ammonia on acrylic or polycarbonate. Ammonia will eat into the surface and create a permanent cloudy effect. Paper towels should also be avoided, as some brands may create scratches.

Get The Look
We love acrylic and polycarbonate furniture here at Sklar Furnishings. Some current favourites include the Isla Side Table, which resembles a broad ribbon of clear acrylic frozen in motion; the Heath Console, which features a figured eucalyptus slab embedded in a clear base; the Avalon Stool, with a padded seat upholstered in natural fur or hide; and the Ava Round Bar Cart, which pairs clear acrylic with a strong retro vibe.
