The continuing trend to present interiors that look as if they have been assembled over time has many homeowners turning to the Old World decorating style. This style features quality house furniture that looks as if it has been handed down for generations. In home furniture, leather is the star of the Old World style. Furniture like sofas, loveseats, ottomans and chairs crafted in fine leather add a feeling of history to home decor.
With the eclectic style, the focus is on rich colors, materials and textures, rather than on adhering to any single period decorating style. Furniture may be purchased in sets, but it is unlikely that the set will be grouped together. Instead, the pieces may find their way into different locations throughout the home, serving as unifying elements that tie the design together. Whereas in most decorating styles, the intent is to present a cohesive whole, in the eclectic style, each individual piece provides visual interest.
Furniture for an eclectic room may feature an unusual design, fabric or shape. When shopping online or brick-and-mortar home furniture stores for the eclectic style, look for lush fabrics, decorative detailing and interesting forms. Search by color and material, not simply by decorating style.
