About Eclectic / Casual Style
Eclectic style lighting often incorporates elements of nature such as leaves, blossoms, birds, and animals. Materials often include shells, twigs, rough-finished metals, wooden beads, freeform crystals, flower-shaped blown glass, and driftwood. Forms run to organic--flowing vines, flowers, and trees, sometimes in more formal forms made of informal materials. It can also involve juxtaposing disparate elements that may not normally be thought to coordinate together.
A relaxed setting is where the casual Eclectic style lighting works best. Perhaps a beach house, or a non-traditional residence, where the occupants live a more laid-back lifestyle.
