Wabi Sabi

I first came upon the term Wabi Sabi while researching unique wallpapers to potentially use for a client.  I ran into a collection from Scion called Wabi Sabi.  The definition:  Wabi-sabi represents Japanese aesthetics and world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete".

I have always been incredibly in Japanese interiors and the way culture and views about materials tie into their designs.  Here are several images of designs that perfectly embody the concept of Wabi Sabi.  Enjoy!
