    Swap an unused area for a handy perchIt’s worth giving up a clear space in your hallway for a seat. A bench or chair will provide somewhere to pause, rest and take off your shoes as soon as you enter your home.Here, a simple wooden bench is ideal. Its slim design ensures it doesn’t impinge on the room, and the black seat pad is both comfy and stylish. If you don’t have a wide area in which to place a bench, a small chair or stool can be just as effective.

    Covet craftsmanshipAnother reason why emptiness is viewed as a positive is that it gives a way to appreciate detail and craftsmanship. Japanese culture today is still arguably heavily influenced by shokunin kishitsu (’craftsman’s spirit’) with its focus on detail and ‘clean’ aesthetic beauty. Even their lunch boxes, known as bento boxes, are perfectly symmetrical and pleasing to the eye. The term craftsman extends across all trades, from design professionals to cleaners, each an expert in their own right, all taking pride in achieving a simple and attractive result. While it could be hard to fill your entire home only with examples of great craftsmanship, working in certain pieces can offer your interior a sense of individuality. Seek out local craftspeople; supporting local suppliers is a good way to imbue your home with character and history, too. In the case of wooden furniture pieces, the Japanese believe the ageing process only adds to their beauty, so make sure whatever you invest in, you cherish and hold onto it.
