Interior design is constantly evolving, with new trends appearing, vintage styles reemerging, and designers paying homage to cultural influences. Japanese interior design, which takes on a clean, minimalistic, unpretentious character, is gaining traction around the world.
Because real estate prices in Japan are comparatively high in relation to home costs in the west, space is at a premium and the size of homes is limited. Unlike the spacious interiors in the US, rooms in Japanese homes are much smaller, and must sometimes serve dual purposes, with eating, sleeping, and living spaces combined.
To establish spaces that project clarity and zen, clutter is kept to a minimum, and home furnishings are less substantial, adaptable, and portable. Instead of bulky mattresses and box springs, the Japanese opt for futons, and when it comes to seating, heavy chairs are replaced with floor cushions, known as zabutons.View collection
