Looking to change things up a bit in your home? Let us introduce you to one of the biggest interior trends of 2023: Japandi. This style is a mix of Japanese & Scandinavian styles. The two styles find each other in minimalism, functionality and natural materials. We will explain the story behind the Japandi style and show you which Japandi items you can find in our collection!


In furniture and accessories, you will find smooth & sleek Scandinavian lines with Japanese elegance & aesthetics. It is a modern style that can feel serene yet cosy and warm. In the book Japandi Living, Laila Rietbergen gathered the most beautiful Japandi Interiors. It is a book full of inspirational photos as well as tips on how to make conscious decisions and how to create your ultimate Japandi home.


Behind the Japanese part of the style is the philosophy of Wabi-Sabi. This life philosophy is all about creating beauty from imperfections in nature. In this book by Tomás Navarro, you can learn more about how you can implement the wabi-sabi attitude in your life. In the Japandi style, the philosophy can be seen in the natural materials that result in organic and asymmetric shapes.


Hygge is a Scandinavian style that is more about cosiness and comfort. It is rustic but in a soft Scandinavian way. Soft textiles and warm tones create a comfortable and cosy ambience.


Key components of the Japandi style are natural fibres & sustainable materials like wood, bamboo, rattan, ceramics, hemp, cotton, linen & paper. These materials naturally often already match the Japandi colour palette. Craftsmanship is an element that also goes hand in hand with the Japandi interior style. Because of this, you may find that many interior products that fit this style are handmade.


The Japandi colour palette consists of neutral & warm tones. The light browns, beiges and greys are mixed with black accents for some contrast. In addition to the natural tones, you may also find some green in the colour palette since plants are often an element within a Japandi interior.


At first glance, the Japandi style does not seem to have an aspect of sustainability at its core. However, there is a definite connection between the two. The most obvious one is the favour of natural materials over artificial ones. Besides that, the minimalism in the style forces you to make conscious decisions about what you buy. It is not about adding more accessories but about leaving items out to create a clean and simple aesthetic. Buy less, but better!
