Our friends at Sissy + Marley have just posted their picks for 2012 nursery trends. Atop the list? Lucite furniture, like this Vetro crib from Nurseryworks. Is it a yay or a nay?

The Vetro crib takes acrylic furniture as far as it will go with an entirely lucite construction. The piece doesn't come cheap; at $3500, it's definitely an investment. We first saw it at the ABC Kids Show in 2010 (when it was named Hollis) and it was the most talked about product of the show if only for its uniqueness. Nurseryworks also unveiled the Vetro rocker with clear acrylic sides at the 2011 show.

We've seen acrylic accents already, like the sides on the Roh crib from Spot on Square as well as used in two cribs from Australian company Ubabub. But thoroughly lucite furniture is more rare.

Do you think acrylic furniture is having a renaissance in the nursery? Would you put lucite furniture in a baby or kid's room?
