Wabi sabi, the quintessential Japanese design aesthetic, is quickly gaining popularity around the world.
Wabi sabi refers to an awareness of the transient nature of earthly things and a corresponding pleasure in the things that bear the mark of this impermanence.
As a design style, wabi sabi helps us to appreciate the simple beauty in imperfection - of a chipped vase or a rainy day, for example.
