Sleep in nature helps relax and rest. Get the quality of Sleep. Eco-friendly furnishings for healthy home.  

The essential aspect of Japanese design is its simplicity.  The main feature of Japanese design is pure lines and uncluttered spaces. mankind lived a simple life in harmony with nature. To achieve Japanese design, use minimum items; place them independently, away from each other so that each item can be admired for its beauty. Achieve serenity by creating oneness with nature.

Our philosophy of living with nature extends to the home we furnish which is based on natural forms and materials, and is built based on renewable resources.      

 

Tatami Mat
 
Tatami is made of rush. The kind of rush to make tatami is called igusa. If you look at the surface of tatami closely, you will find that tatami is woven out of rush. To weave and ame one surface of tatami, they use about four to five thousand pieces of rush. But the craftsperson doesn't use rush immediately after harvest. They sort rush by its use and grade before they use it. 
Fusuma
 
Fusuma-shoji are sliding doors used to separate rooms. Unlike the translucent akarishouji, they are opaque. They run in tracks along the top called "uwabuchi" and bottom called "shitabuchi." The vertical sides of the frame are called "mashibuchi." These frames offer anchorage, but the door can be easily lifted out. Fusuma are constructed of lightweight wood covered with decorative paper. Fusuma doors are trimmed with cedar, which is typically dark brown or black lacquer. Handles, called "hikite," are often quite elaborate and unique in shape, not necessarily circular. Tassels attached to the handles pulls are called "fusahikite."
