Nordic Fusion combines the best of both worlds – the sleek, pared back elegance of Japanese design, the natural textures and warmth of the Nordic look and the simplicity and beauty of both. Read on for ideas on how to revitalise your dining room with Nordic Fusion.
Choose functional, beautiful wooden dining tables
Dining is central to both Nordic and Japanese cultures – and the dining table often takes centre stage in the main living area of the home.
Nordic dining has a modern, rustic feel with pale wooden dining tables or reclaimed wood and dark metal dining tables with clean and functional lines. Japanese influenced dining furniture can be dark stained, with simple square or elegant curved lines. Nordic Fusion allows a mix of light and dark, curved and straight – as long as the balance is harmonious.
Pair your dining table with dining chairs or dining benches that are as comfortable as they are beautiful – the only rule is that the design should be simple and elegant. Then channel your inner Zen as you place your table and chairs. Traditionally, placement of the Japanese dining table followed rules to maximise the harmonious feel of the space.
While it’s not practical to follow ancient Japanese etiquette to the letter, we can still make sure there’s plenty of ‘flow’ around our dining tables. Nobody should ever feel crowded when dining Nordic Fusion style.
