What is Wabi Sabi?
This is a Japanese aesthetic principal centred on the acceptance of imperfection, sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete".
Basically, finding beauty in imperfection. We love that idea here at Next Chapter Home. We are none of us perfect and there is such beauty in nature. Nature is not perfect, so why mess with is? There are no straight lines in nature, are there? I think not so why do we focus so much of lives on perfection, symmetry (yeah I struggle with this) and flawlessness?
We try to source homewares that are unique and the Acacia Timber tables that we have just sourced are amazing. While others may be going for something a little closer to the glitz and glam of the Real Housewives of NY, we are holding true to what we believe. Offer something for those people who are sick of the same-same, mass produced products and find something that is unique and has soul.
Products that are examples of human hands merely enhancing the natural beauty of the raw material are what catch our eye. Imperfections are good people!
These tables are effectively a finished "unfinished" horizontal slice (cross section) of the tree with very minimalist iron legs attached, which in my opinion enhances the organic nature of the table top.There are cracks in the table top and any large ones have been filled with a bow shaped piece of timber in a contrasting colour which has a dual purpose of both function and style.
If you have make a product or have seen something that we may like the look of, please feel free to contact us and tell us all about it.
See you soon!!
