What is Japandi Style?
The Japandi Interior Design trend is mostly about the combination of the Scandinavian interiors and Japanese design style traditions and the mutual respect of simplicity, clean design, nature, and natural light.
You’ll usually see earthy tones, white walls, a neutral color palette, natural wooden furniture, and organic materials.
The Japanese term Wabi-Sabi (beauty in imperfection) brings to the design world the effect of imperfection. Which allows our homes to breathe, be calming and warm but most importantly, functional. The acceptance of imperfection in our homes allows us to live more in the moment and reduces stress levels.
The inherent balance seen in Japandi design owes a great deal to the long-standing cultural ties between Denmark and Japan. Over 150 years ago, Danish designer and Danish architects began traveling to Japan searching for new inspiration. It is a relationship of influence that continues to this day.
In many ways, today’s Danish ceramics, furniture, open-plan architecture, and minimalism can be traced back to the earliest Japanese influence. Furthermore, the appreciation is reciprocal, with Danish design having been much sought after in Japan for many years.
Then there’s the similar appreciation for craftsmen, workmanship, and natural elements, particularly wood, that exists between the two countries. While both the Japanese philosophy of ‘wabi-sabi’ and the Danish philosophy of ‘hygge’ are based on a strong appreciation for simplicity, there are some differences between the two.
While Scandinavian style and Japanese aesthetic furniture share many characteristics, the most significant distinction is that Scandinavian designs typically employ light shades of wood. In contrast, traditional Japanese designs typically contain dark woods.
A Japanese style wood is usually stained and then has black accents, such as the fabric, that make it stand out.
