What happens when you take a dash of contemporary, a pinch of modern and stir in some glam decor? Sounds like the recipe for an exquisite eclectic space. Lovers of the eclectic look tend to mix and match different periods and styles, pulling the room together with color, texture and finish.

But, where do you go to fulfill your wonderfully diverse aesthetic? While there are many stores and websites dedicated to specific styles like modern and bohemian, finding the perfect rug or painting for an eclectic space can be a challenge! One great option to help with your hunt is Lofty, an online marketplace for art, antiques and collectibles.


Here’s a taste of the great decor you can find on Lofty:

  • A gallery wall is a great way to showcase the variety of your taste. Unlike the classic style, frames should be varied, and images can range beyond the traditional representations of still-life, landscape, or portraiture. Mix in an abstract print, such as this lithograph, with a nineteenth century, Oriental-style portrait. We also love this series of stencils, which would look great in unexpected, antique frames.

  • Snap up accessories that embrace your inner kitsch. These candelabras add a gorgeous quirkiness to a rustic farm table or baroque credenza. And if your bathroom feels a bit cluttered, add unique storage options, like antique apothecary jars, to hide the mess.

  • Your statement furniture should have a lot of character – so much so that guests will be dying to know the story behind the pieces. Choose fun, historical furniture like this gorgeous chaise to add an unexpected twist to your living room or bedroom. Placing it on top of a vibrant antique rug such as this Afghan one will accentuate the wooden details and add warmth to your space.
