Wabi Sabi Furniture

Wabi Sabi furniture Wabi Sabi style is an old aesthetic philosophy from Zen Buddhism, particularly the tea ceremony, a ritual of purity and simplicity in which masters prized bowls that were handmade and irregularly shaped, with uneven glaze, cracks, and a perverse beauty in their deliberate imperfection. wabi sabi trunk          wabi sabi round table Pared down to its barest form, wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding perfection and beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth, decay, and death Wabi-sabi is flea markets and discount warehouses, not designer stores; aged wood, not plywood or particle board. It celebrates cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and over use leave behind. It reminds us that we are all but passing by on this planet-that our bodies as well as the material world around us are in the process of returning to the dust from which we came. Through wabi-sabi, we learn to embrace rust, and frayed edges, cracks and blemishes in wood and the march of time they represent. asian wabi sabi          wabi sabi kitchen island Wabi refers to peace, harmony, tranquility, and balance. A Wabi person epitomizes Zen, which is to say, he or she is content with very little; free from greed and anger; and understands the wisdom of rocks and grasshoppers.

Many people are tired of machine made furniture that is constructed with a perfect veneer over plywood or particle board. Instead we use solid wood that may over the years develop cracks and blemishes which ad to the character of the piece making it much more unusual and desirable to most. SDR Imports uses wood, metal, glass and stone in this fashion. We take style and finish back over 100 years where people made furniture by hand using tools that the modern world no longer use. Many of our furniture items have been hand carved which is a painstaking task but the process has been handed down from generation to generation to insure it continues as long as possible. chinese wabi sabi          table In India we buy beams of old wood by the kilogram and cut them down to manageable planks and make amazing dining room tables.
