Japanese Interior Design

Japanese interior design is typically simple and natural. Japanese Zen Buddhist culture is deeply en-grained in Japanese designs. Less is more. The focus a room is drawn to a central design element which may be a traditional art form such as a Japanese flower arrangement (ikebana) or a natural element such as a rock. Natural fibres and traditional materials such as tatami and wood are often used and colours are subtle. Often black and white or natural wood tones are used.japanese room in dark light
Another traditional design element is that Japanese furniture is kept as close to the ground as possible. Japanese traditionally slept on futon beds on the floor and sat on tatami mats as they ate a meal. Keeping the furniture low to the ground gives Japanese interiors a feeling of steadiness.


Japanese Interior Design

Japanese interior design is not easy to define. It encompasses both traditional Japanese design and modern.
