Zen Living Room

Bring harmony to your space with hallmarks of Japanese design.

In Japan, black is considered a colour that is used to emphasize form. Look for shapely black items such as leggy cocktail tables or a curvy webbed chair. As a finishing touch, decorate white walls with traditional calligraphic scrolls; fashioned into a kimono and hung on a bamboo pole, their inky script becomes gorgeous graphic art.
