The Japanese people will be familiar with the term 'shibui' as it references a philosophy about simple, subtle and unobtrusive beauty; yet others around the world will soon be associating the term with a collection of timeless homewares. Inspired by this philosophy, the timeless homewares introduce objects that are practical works of art suitable for just about any living space.

From rotating wooden candle holders to geometric brass wine stoppers and infinity symbol wall hooks, this collection of timeless homewares brings style and elegance into the house in a way that will excite many. Although the designs are simple, they have a strong impact on their environment, a balance that is not easily achievable by like-minded designers.
