A cup will be perfect after how to glaze the inside is covered with netting and cracks. Wabi - a lack of deliberate, the beauty of simplicity. With this concept is related practicality, functionality and utilitarian beauty items. Wabi sabi and eventually began to be used as a concept - "wabi sabi," which then took on a broader meaning The everyday turned to the word "Shibuya". Japanese on the question of what Shibuya, answer: that a man with good taste would call beautiful. Shibuya - is beauty, encased in a material when it is minimally processed, and practicality products. The combination of these two qualities Japanese consider ideal.

Kenko Yo-Shida in the XVIII century, wrote: "The finality of all things bad, just unfinished provides a joyful, relaxing feeling. " Subject that is complete, uninteresting, Natural variability is lost in finality. Japanese art of denying and symmetry: it embodies a repetition. Atmosphere of the traditional Japanese homes were buried in the floor of the hearth, a low table and cushions seats. Minimum of furniture and household items, all that takes place and dissipates attention. A lot of light stuff and household items are hidden in closets, built-in the walls or even under the floor. Living in a Japanese house replaced a niche in the wall (Shiga-dana). The space was decorated scrolls (kakemono), vases for flowers and bronze statuettes of saints. Japanese furniture in the house a little, but not say that it does not. Moreover, the Japanese furniture is original enough. Tansu - Traditional Japanese furniture is the term referred to all Japanese Tansu antique case furniture, which appeared during the Edo era (1615-1780).

To the body from the outside on the corners and along edges added shoeing, that gave the design strength and spectacular view. Tansu Large with the skeleton had forged hinges and mortise locks. Forged by finishing as the number of boxes could be varnished to determine the status of the owner. Incidentally, The furniture was initially allowed only the nobility. Used for the manufacture of Tansu fine wood. Housing, frame and panels are mainly made of rock hinoki (Similar to yellow cedar) and sugi (similar to cypress swamp). The best material for boxes and drawers because of its ability to absorb moisture year was kiri (similar to South American species). Panels of drunk keyaki used to the front of the drawers, which is usually covered with clear varnish. New old furniture special love to have the Japanese furniture from the old tree, called oldwood (in Russia - "antique tree"): despite at the age of this wood is admirable strength. Massive oldwood made screens, mirror frames, tables, benches and consoles. More modest fragments oldwood go to the lining of the furniture: beds backs, shelves, tables, chests of drawers, cupboards, coffee tables. Many fragments of wood visible traces - evidence of the past. Therefore the depth of the surface relief of oldwood may be more centimeters. Created by nature through oldwood give things a unique, particularly valued by the Japanese. Of the oldest materials oldwood made lampshades for lamps and floor lamps.

All that is made of teak, should serve as a century. Over the years, teak, mahogany, and as it becomes even more beautiful and stronger. Small decorative items, such as vases, are made mango. Saw cut from the trunk of mango diameter of 50 inches cut stools and small objects. Valued coating of solid rock reed, called Europe «opium-mat».

Contrary to the European tradition is not tabletop covers a leg on the contrary, their open ends of the beauty of the wood rings. Of particular importance are the details - the shape pen chests, decorative ties bow, the line of leg or chest plate. Stresses the importance of simple shapes free space.
