The Art of Japanese Minimalist Design
Simplicity Sparks Your Creative Muse
~ Matsu Basho
Japanese Minimalism is the ideal complement to almost any style of art. It is no coincidence that modern art museums and galleries opt for modern, minimalist furnishings – the sleek lines and uncluttered look accents the original works of wildly divergent exhibits, without detracting from the works themselves.
THE LUCERNE TWIN SIZE SOFA BED
Art lovers will love the Lucerne Daybed and Lounge, as it easily could be considered a work of art itself. The Lucerne is part of the Haiku Designs “Great Cities of the World” collection, named after the city of Lucerne, Switzerland, famed for its picturesque Baroque churches and acclaimed contemporary art galleries and modern concert hall.
Its clean, sleek styling and quirky design will complement any Asian inspired Minimalist arrangement. The unique, yet understated silhouette lends itself well to displaying art – adding to the creative flair of the room while not detracting from the art on the walls.
Highly versatile, this charming sofa is designed to function as a traditional comfy sofa for your living room, while also adjusting to a chaise lounge by lowering one end, or a convenient single sleeper bed by lowering both arms. It features the latest in Eco-comfort technology, and boasts a sturdy steel frame, individually wrapped springs, and an interwoven layer of Euro-foam that allows two people to enjoy the couch at once, with zero motion transfer from one to the other.
THE MULTIFUNCTIONAL CHILL CHAIR
How cool is this chair? This incredibly sophisticated chair will complement any Asian inspired minimalist room, and blends wonderfully with a wide range of complementary art and rugs to allow you to truly express your individual style. The Chill Chair is finely crafted using a high quality nested coil system, swathed in a special Eco-Foam for luxurious lounging. Its sleek, understated design allows you to easily change the room's accessories and art pieces as often as you like, without the need for purchasing new furniture.
Make it your own by choosing from a multitude of finishes, including White or Black Textile Leather or a Dark Brown nubby linen. A selection of three different leg styles – Brass or Steel, and Light or Dark Wood – lets you completely customize the Chill to match your living environment. The Chill Sleeper Sofa is also available.
