An eclectic style was also used for home design in the 20th century. At that time the house is a symbol of wealth and prosperity. The more luxurious the contents of the house, the higher the degree of nobility of a person. Aesthetically, this style is more reflective of the style of the past than the future.

Eclectic style is a design style that has a method of combining various aspects, ideas, theories aimed at creating the best architecture with existing combinations. Eclectism does not always combine, but sometimes only applies one style, only in the form of construction, function, and conceptual side different from the original system.
Historically, in the 19th century, Europe and the United States experienced a massive Industrial Revolution, which also gave rise to new material on architecture. Cast iron, wrought iron, steel and glass appear as building materials that are more practical to use. However, without instructions on how to use these new materials, many architects are looking for inspiration and looking at past architectural styles. The 19th century was synonymous with a series of ‘revival movements’, where the style of the past re-emerged as a symbol of modern power.
Eclectic emerged at the end of the 19th century because architects at that time wanted to find a new style that no one had ever seen before. On the basis of past design styles, they then mix and combine a variety of styles that ultimately provide a lot of inspiration with freedom of expression. The main driving force of Ecletism is creation, not nostalgia and want to make original designs.

Comfort and convenience of furniture and interior design are the main criteria for electrical style. All indoor items must be functional and practical, not only beautiful. That’s why in the electrical style we often find antique and modern furniture to complement each other. Antique cabinets can be placed side by side with a modern built-in wardrobe, minimalist glass table or classic chair with gold embroidery seats.

The nature of the eclectic style may indeed vary, but each room in the house must be in harmony with one another. The space in your home will look inconsistent or disconnected if there are many changes between one room and another. If you have decided to use an eclectic style at home, make a harmonious atmosphere in every space in the whole house.
