Traditional Japanese furniture

Japanese furniture is characterized by simplicity. It is low level furniture that is functional, elegant and transparent. Go for a bedside table in your bedroom or just a mattress on the floor. You can create a coffee table by connecting school-type benches. Remember, black furniture is always the right choice. Also, look for lacquered traditional Japanese furniture. Real pieces will have beautiful intricate inlays of silver, gold and pearl.


This is a vital part of every Japanese home. Simple white paper lampshade is your best option because light is spread through paper to give a warm glow. You can also achieve the same effect by placing lights behind decorative screens.
