In the past few years, Karup Design has expressed and translated the brand and products' character and identity through a so-called Japandi style. Our products have always been a reflection of two worlds. Firstly, the minimalistic and functional Japanese style. Secondly, the influence of the light and 'hygge' Scandinavian style. As both of these styles reflect simplicity and minimalism, we merged Japandi with a twist of wabi-sabi for a more personal touch. Wabi-sabi is Japanese aesthetics, which centers on accepting and finding beauty in imperfection. With a fast-moving everyday life, it is essential to have a safe and inspiring space called home. A simple, minimal, functional, and warm Japandi style with a touch of wabi-sabi creates a calming feeling at any home.


nature-inspired colors are a must (from earthy brown to forest green and ocean blue)

nature-inspired materials as wooden furniture, linen curtains, tatami mats, cotton bed linens, etc.

unclutter your spaces to have more free floor space, give yourself more room to move around, and to have more air to breathe

choose furniture with simple forms, rounded shapes and straight lines

choose lower furniture to create more air in the room (for example, one of our beds: Japan bed, Dock bed or the new Ziggy bed, which has a pure combination of functionality and Japandi essence)

think of functionality in everything you do, organize your spaces to have convenience and comfort

do not get scared from imperfections, handmade ceramics or carpets, imperfectly crafted lamps or any other decorations

be creative, start slow, and create a space that makes you happy, calm, and joyful. Get inspired and create an atmosphere that encourages you daily
