Japandi Style - When Japanese and Scandinavian Designs Blend examines the latest trend in interior design and home styling: A fusion of the functionality and comfort that characterizes Scandinavian design with the minimalist aesthetics and pure elegance of traditional Japanese craftsmanship.
This hybrid style harmoniously blends Scandinavian hygge – the sense of cozy contentment – with wabi-sabi, a concept derived from Zen Buddhism that advocates acceptance of the natural cycle of life and admiration for the beauty of imperfection.
This first major survey of Japandi introduces the reader to the basics of the design style, as well as to furniture and objects that will create an elegantly simple Japandi look in any interior.
The first chapter explains why Japanese and Scandinavian styles have so much in common, and explores Japandi's guiding principles, among them attention to detail, a muted palette, organic materials, natural textures, timeless shapes and clean, uncluttered lines.
The second chapter presents some of the most emblematic pieces - furniture, ceramics and other products - of Japanese style and the design studios behind them.
Chapter three provides examples of how to decorate and decorate any room in your home - living room, dining room, bedroom, bathroom, home office and conservatory - in a beautifully considered and soothing Japanese style.
