Introducing Japandi

What Does Japandi Mean?

The word is the union of Japanese and Scandi (Scandinavian). The origin of this style dates back to when the Danish designers and creatives began traveling to Japan, the moment the 220-year-old closed-border policies were finally lifted.

- ARCHITECTURALDDIGEST.IN


Japandi originated between two countries: Japan and Scandinavia. The roots of the Japandi trend in furniture began when two styles mixed. The Japanese philosophy of wabi sabi’s natural and slow-living simplicity, as well the Scandinavian practice of hygge, which merges eastern and western ideas and decor and creates cozy contentment.
