Oftentimes, one's dream home doesn't follow any single aesthetic or style. Thankfully, it seems that many people are pulling away from the purchase of room sets with matching dining tables, dining chairs, console tables and chests.

Style is getting more eclectic

Your utopian space might incorporate a minimalist sofa, a modern dining table, vintage family heirloom dresser, and mid-century modern side chairs. If your aim is to create a home that visually exemplifies eclectic harmony, marrying all those pieces can be an overwhelming undertaking when colors, upholsteries, and styles are battling one another. Fine tuning the overarching look of a room doesn't ever happen until it can physically arranged and re-arranged, right? Well, at least that's the way it used to be.

It's possible to see your room beforehand

We decided to take some fan-favorite spaces from a past post that exemplify this ideal, and using SmartSpace we were able to recreate the look and customize them both with color combinations and different upholstery options. Eclectic interior design made simple. Now you can avoid the chaos of a diversely inspired space. Make sure you have all the "just-right" pieces for your room by testing them with SmartSpace.


Eames Dowel Leg Side Chair

Eclectic Space No.1 mixes Eames Dowel Leg Side Chairs
in playful color combinations around a minimalist dining table
topped with bold industrial lighting.


Space No. in Smart Space

Here is Space No. 1 in SmartSpace - where I changed up the dining table
with a natural table top and switched up the chair colors because
the original magenta wasn't quite my taste.

Mixed dining chairs

The diverse style in Space No. 2 combines several different chairs and stools
with a Strut Dining Table and eye-catching overhead lights.


SmartSpace No. 2

Here is my solution to make Space No. 2 more harmonious - Change the color of the
Saarinen Armchair
to a neutral from a blue. Add Eames Stools at the table ends
instead of the original gold stumps. Hang a collection of pendant lights above the table
that compliment the aesthetic of the minimalist Blu Dot Strut Table.
