Eclectic Living Room Design Ideas

If a space that is both approachable and informal, globally-inspired and multi-style and highly curated sounds like your cup of tea, than an eclectic living room design may be what you need. Eclectic style is all about mixing elements and covers a wide range of looks from bohemian to more elegant and polished. An eclectic living room design could feature sofas and chairs that differ in style but are cohesive because of the other elements in the design like the patterns, colors, and lighting. Eclectic design feels familiar and comforting, with an artsy edge and curated look. One on hand, when looking at eclectic living room ideas, you may see a space that feels more youthful; Poufs on the ground, rattan lounge chairs, Morrocan inspired rugs and a lush array of plants. Another eclectic style living room may boast a more sophisticated presence with classic wingback chairs and a chesterfield leather sofa. However different they may seem, both living rooms would fall into the realm of eclectic style.  An eclectic living room layout doesn’t call for formality and symmetry but rather prioritizes a comfortable and interesting approach. Functionality should always be a priority in a living room, making the space usable for all who will enjoy it. You may wonder how furniture of different calibers and styles could come together harmoniously in an eclectic living room. The key to pulling a living room together in this particular style is by using bold patterns, saturated color, and mismatched elements that fit together in some aspect. Using a consistent texture of pillow on all contrasting furniture can pull the look together, or even coordinating the artwork on the walls with the rug on the floor can be a subtle touch that brings the space full circle. You’ll see that in our eclectic living room design ideas there is a blend of old and new, an array of styles, color and textures. Curating this style can be challenging, but the end result is a space that is one of a kind and exquisitely beautiful. If this is something you are drawn too, we hope you enjoy our beautiful collection of eclectic living room design inspiration.

To achieve an effortless boho lounge design, there are a few things to keep in mind! First, you'll want to incorporate natural materials, like a jute rug and woven fiber basket.

Small Apartment with furniture Pulling Double-Duty Living Area

Just because you have a small living room doesn't mean you have to skimp on seating options. By opting for multifunctional living room furniture, we squeezed in a few extra seats. So, not only do you have the sofa and armchair, but the coffee table is an ottoman, which someone can sit on, and the side table is actually a stool. Not to mention you can pull in the barstool from the desk and even use the bed for extra seating in a pinch!
