There are no real rules when it comes to eclectic style. Eclectic style is all about harmony and the combination of shape and proportion. With juxtaposing textures and contrasting colors to create a cohesive inviting space, most of which portrays décor freedom and fun, not having set rules and cookie cutter looks.
We are seeing a mix of outdoor, indoor, natural materials and different furniture era styles. Aztec patterns, raffia fabrics, mid-century modern silhouettes, pops of color, mixed patterns, outdoor rattan and indoor materials make for a chic yet eclectic look.
Our newest DESIGNER8* collection includes a unique mix of rattans, metals and mid-century elements to help our clients achieve their own eclectic looks.

A new year means new trends, we have listed some of the top 2020 trends that can be seen in event décor. Channel back seating has made a big resurgence with its retro feel and sleek design. The DESIGNER8* Alexis Collection comes in wheat and dusty rose.
Industrial lighting has been a huge trend in the past few years and has quickly made its way into event rentals as well. Sculptural furniture is also a big trend for the new year, especially in seating. DESIGNER8* offers many styles with sculptural shapes and silhouettes. The Adele sofa and bench can be configured into round or serpentine shapes.
Sustainability and eco-friendly furnishings have been and will continue to be a huge trend in the new year. DESIGNER8* reuses and recycles many materials to make their furniture more sustainable, including the Reclaimed Bar, which is made of reclaimed lumber.

Not everything at your event needs to have color, sometimes a beautiful winter white is even more impactful. A lot of times when people think of all white furniture they think of the old trends where a lot of the furniture was basic whites, however the design in furniture has come a long way in events and today there are many different ways to play up the all-white look.
Whether you’re going for a super modern look or classic, DESIGNER8* has your look covered. Keeping everything monochromatic with white allows your eye and your guests to focus on the main event. If you have too many patterns or colors, your focus tends to shift to the furniture and not the main reason why guests are there in the first place. The below examples are two completely different styles but both all white. Each look stands out yet doesn’t distract from your event!

As the end of the year comes to an end, it’s time to start thinking about trends for 2020. In order to stay on top of the game, you need to pay attention to the ever-changing event industry and fashion world. This year we saw bold color choices, more lounge seating over standing, and many monochromatic designs. As we look ahead, DESIGNER8* is always thinking ahead of the trend to see what the next big hit will be!
One of the biggest trends were going to see is bold eclectic mixing of lounge. Clients are thinking outside the box and using different styles of lounge in many colorways to mix and match and create a fun and inviting environment. DESIGNER8* has many different types of styles in many different colors from modern to traditional to contemporary to vintage that will all help you achieve this look.
Another big trend we think we’re going to be seeing is the use of greens. Rental hedge walls and matching green furniture is going to be a huge staple in 2020. This ties into the color blocking and nature aspect that many people are leaning towards. These are just a few ideas of what we think we’re going to be seeing in the coming year. Whatever your needs are, DESIGNER8* has what you’re looking for!
