Don't miss the vertical space

Eclecticism is a wide concept and can include anything and everything. It is the coming together of old and new, simple and sophisticated, colourful and the pale – which together make the room bold and inviting. Dining room shown below takes a different take on eclecticism by bringing closer the top and bottom.

While the floor for the dining space is consumed by wood and bamboo furniture, which give an earthy look together with the floor tile, the air above smells fresh with green hanging from the ceiling. To give it a tough fight (in terms of elegance and charm), huge gorgeous chandeliers appear on the other end of the ceiling.
