Interiors with Nikita Kahn Classic Japanese Style This issue's column focuses on classic Japanese style and its peaceful simplicity. Japanese style revolves around clean and organized living, together with balance, order, and a respect for nature. You want to make sure the décor is minimalistic with neutral color palettes like Flexform's Cestone Sofa in a soft upholstered linen with a woven cowhide added to its back and sides to give the piece an added design element. Japanese culture is known for using wooden elements throughout their homes --incorporating it is one of the best ways to harmonize with nature as in 1stdibs Spalted Maple Coffee Table. Of course, a design utilizing wood would not be complete unless it's by well-known modern woodworker, George Nakashima with his Black Walnut Long Chairs designed with a two position adjustable back and free edge armrests. Adding Japanese paper lanterns is another way to incorporate this style, think notable modern designer, Isamu Noguchi's Akari Floor Lamp. Nothing is more zen-inducing than listening to the peaceful sounds of bubbling water while bathing in a soft, wooden Zen Bathworks Ofuro Soaking Tub.
