Wabi-Sabi Pair

Wabi-sabi is the most conspicuous and characteristic feature of traditional Japanese beauty and it occupies roughly the same position in the Japanese pantheon of aesthetic values as do the Greek ideals of beauty and perfection in the West. If an object or expression can bring about a sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual longing, then that object could be said to be Wabi-sabi, Wabi-sabi nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.
 Our beautiful pair of 18th Century keyaki wood chairs perfectly illustrate the ideals of imperfect and unfinished as aesthetically pleasing. Constructed from old rice mortars, they are 18.5 inches tall and sold as a pair.
