The Wabi-Sabi House, a book about the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection. Wabi-sabi is not a decorating style, but rather a mindset, with no list of rules. Creating a wabi-sabi home is the result of developing our wabigokoro, or wabi mind and heart: living modestly, learning to be satisfied with life once we strip away the unnecessary, and living in the moment.
Kotatsu is a heated blanketed coffee table, invented in 14th century Japan, and can be found in most Japanese homes during the winter. While they are the focal point of Japanese homes during the winter, they usually aren’t the prettiest furniture.
