The Zen style, between purity and elegance

The Zen style, between purity and elegance

Zen, a whole program! Between Asian inspiration and purifying the space, how to define this style, the furniture and the colorful harmonies that relate to it. Furniture with pure lines In terms of furniture, the Japanese style stands out as obvious. Modernist table and chair, bed like futons at ground level, decorations inscribed on bamboo mats or simple and sober rugs. All of which must form pure lines and compose relaxing and graphic tables. Avoid accumulating objects at all costs. And it is better to hide everything in the cupboards to sublimate one or two objects, a graphic plant, a design lamp. Design also occupies a special place in these Zen universes. Modernity being obvious, therefore avoid placing an old wardrobe or an object found in a flea market in these universes. Asymmetrical compositions and natural materials Everything is then in the art of composition. To do this, avoid symmetries and, like Asian compositions, the decorations should form asymmetrical tables. In terms of materials, wood, lacquer, melamine, glass will be the preferred materials for the Zen style. Textile side. To have in your Zen decor, fabrics such as cotton, dry wool, cotton tarpaulin, leather. In terms of colors, there are whites, creams and beige, the whole symphony of gray and black tones, with a few rare, minimalist patterns. Note, Asian prints and weavings like sashikos (white patterns on navy or black) work wonderfully.
