Houzz Author Highlights Shaker Style

We would like to thank Robyn Lawrence for featuring us in her recent Houzz article titled, ‘Strange but True Parallels Between Early Western and Old Japanese Style.’ In this piece she highlights the parallels between Early Western and Old Japanese interior design styles. She compares design styles that are known for being simplistic and aesthetically pleasing, using a photo of one of our Custom Shaker Dining Tables!

Robyn is an expert in Wabi Sabi, the Japanese concept of finding beauty in imperfection. In her book,  ‘Simply Imperfect: Revisiting the Wabi-Sabi House,” Robyn reflects on Wabi Sabi as more than a design style, but a simplistic and “modestly in the moment” lifestyle. Wabi Sabi  is similar to the traditional Shaker lifestyle in that it strips away the unnecessary, and finds beauty in seemingly ordinary things. ‘Simply Imperfect’ is a book that introduces these concepts, and reveals ways to introduce Wabi Sabi into your home!

If you’re curious about Wabi Sabi style, chat with Robyn on Twitter, or read her blog!
