Eclectic Style: is a rather avant-garde style of interior design that encompasses a diverse variety of periods, styles and tastes brought together by utilizing colour, texture, form and finish. This matching of various styles, periods and elements results in a multi-layered and highly individual interior loaded with interest.
A basic example: take a Persian rug; add a Louis XVI chair coupled with a contemporary geometric scatter cushion; then add a rather industrial-looking floor lamp and maybe even a mid-century side table, et voilà!
A little challenge: comment below and identify the various elements that makes the image above “Eclectic“
