With a base of natural materials and a neutral palette, the Japandi style promotes a feeling of peace and tranquillity. However, a calm aesthetic doesn’t mean a blandly simplified or understated interior. The two home designs we feature here today offer interesting compilations of shapely furniture pieces and lighting installations to achieve cool Scandi meets Japanese melds. We see wood, wicker, jute, cotton and linen utilised with fashion-forward thinking. The curved decor trend has the biggest influence in each of these designs and creates distinctive silhouettes. Curves communicate a welcoming softness and an easy-flowing layout for daily life, fusing form and function in the Japandi way.

Our final Japandi home interior has a light-filled living room. A unique orange lounge chair provides a welcome pop of colour. A modern swing arm wall lamp adds a stark black accent that ties in with traditional teapots on the coffee table.
The shapely orange armchair is the Groovy M chair designed by Pierre Paulin for Artifort. A unique coffee table complements the curves of the chair. Indoor plants and botanical arrangements add natural interest to the room.
A rattan room divider places light-permeable arches between the lounge area and an open plan kitchen diner and entryway. A storage bench fits neatly into the nook by the entryway to tuck away outdoor items. A matching storage bench is situated on the opposite side of the rattan room divider to deliver cohesive decor to the lounge area.
A full-length mirror lets the homeowners check their appearance on the way out the door. The home entryway nook doubles as a focal point for the formal dining room. Wall cabinets tuck away seasonal serving items and a table lamp makes a cosy glow. See more ideas for unique table lamps.
