Origins of eclectic style
The eclectic look is hardly new. Even though it's in the spotlight these days, eclecticism actually came about in the early 1900s, with the Arts and Crafts movement. "It became hip for progressives and thinkers to fit art and furnishings into their homes to achieve a more personal feeling, rather than one particular style," Solomon explains.
