This simple, natural aesthetic celebrates imperfection.

Deeply rooted in Japanese culture, wabi-sabi is the newest design trend influencing the American aesthetic. Celebrating imperfection and uncomplicated style, the spirit of wabi-sabi is finding beauty in the not-so-perfect. Invest in fewer, but longer-lasting and higher-quality items. Natural materials such as wood, linen, wool, clay, leather and iron are encouraged as they age gracefully over time.
