What’s the Wabi Sabi trend all about?

What’s the Wabi Sabi trend all about?

There’s no doubt that the concept of wabi-sabi will be on interior design trending lists the world over this year.  Yet the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi has been around for a long time.

Wabi translates as simplicity, humility and always moving towards having less, while sabi refers to the passing of time and the beauty and authenticity of age.

In a nutshell then, wabi-sabi is about embracing imperfection — the natural cracks in wood, the wrinkles in an ageing human face, the asymmetry of hand-maid ceramic crockery. It’s a way of looking, a willingness to be delighted by the uniqueness of things and the passing of time. In this sense, it’s the very antithesis of a world where the desire for newness and perfection leads to the constant consumption of mass-produced goods.

At Weylandts, we’ve always celebrated this awareness of raw simplicity and the organic beauty of nature’s imperfections. We’ve compiled a list of inspirational links that expresses our appreciation of the wabi-sabi way. Enjoy.
