As it's a fairly new trend it's not been adopted by everyone just yet but we think it's going to BOOM in popularity over the next 12 months.
So let's take a few mins to talk about the origin of Japandi and look at some ways our recent Japandi collection can be incorporated into the current interior style of your home.
"What is Japandi?" is probably among the first questions you'll have.
Well, in a nutshell it's a contemporary fusion of Scandinavian and Japanese design styles.
Japandi borrows from the Japanese philosophy of ‘wabi sabi, which means an appreciation of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, or incomplete". It combines this concept with the Scandinavian practice of "hygge", which means a feeling of cosiness, contentment and well-being.
Essentially it's about effortlessly creating a space that is warm and calming without having to be perfect.
Authenticity is key.
Placing formal Japanese elements alongside the minimal aesthetic of Scandinavian design is what makes this interior style such a fantastic choice for contemporary interior spaces.
Finding the perfect balance of neutral tones, complimentary textures and natural finishes is key to achieving the Japandi style, so if you're a maximalist it's definitely not a look you'd enjoy in your home!
