Wabi Sabi spirit

"Wabi sabi is the beauty of imperfect, impermanent and incomplete things. It is the beauty of modest and humble things. It is the beauty of atypical things", Leonard Koren, architect and aesthetics theorist.

Wabi sabi is the perfect home deco trend of the moment and we are absolute fans ! This concept and its principles related to imperfection and nature effortlessly fit into our design and creative philosophy. Local craftsmanship and natural materials are essential to give each of our pieces a unique character and imperfection and this is what we love the most about the wabi sabi idea.

Coming from Japan, with origins in Zen Buddhism, wabi sabi advocates the idea of emptiness, silence, patina or a refined austerity created by recycled and rustic materials where philosophy, religion and decoration are subtly intertwined.

Get rid of the superfluous and seek imperfection... Here's how to adopt the perfect wabi sabi attitude :

1) Look for handcrafted objects in ceramics, stoneware or clay. Start with crockery and small decorative objects.
