"Legendary Belgium antiquarian and art collector Axel Vervoordt’s interiors represent some of the most coveted rooms from layered and luxurious to monastic and minimal, reflecting the influence he derived from the Buddhist principle of “contradiction.” In Wabi Inspirations (Flammarion) Vervoordt, a student of Zen, gives his personal take on an ascetic developed in the twelfth century that advocates simplicity, authenticity, and imperfection. Vervoordt, working with Japanese architect Tatsuro Miki, uses natural materials to maximum effect as brilliantly seen in 350 dazzling color illustrations." ~VANDM.com

In the modern world of everyday people, wabi-sabi is a concept that can be used to improve our lives. Wabi-sabi is a concept originating from Japan which stresses three important values for objects surrounding us: Impermanence, Imperfection, and the Incomplete. Before this book came out, I had never seen the first word used alone. Wabi means essentially "humble," and is the absolute wrong title for the book and its concepts. The book shows pictures of generally empty lodges, tea houses, and retreats--and these dwellings are invariably set on a lake front, or next to the ocean, or feature a stunning view of the Alps through its unadorned window. Space--affording a house (or chalet, or loft) and then keeping it empty save perhaps a stack of rocks or one vase--is the ultimate luxury in this world. This book purports to idolize that which is humble: A retreat on the side of the mountain, where guests are made to pad single file across the grounds and then step into the tea house. But a European retreat, its grounds, and associated tea house are a mark of unattainable luxury! So too are two barns featured in this book. Both barns make their way to Europe; but one of them is commissioned and built in Japan first.
The next time -you- have a barn designed, commissioned, and built in another country--and then have it shipped to your estate in Belgium--I suggest you reach for this book, because it provides some ideas for how to furnish it [one wingback chair, one roughly-hewn porcelain water vessel; done!]. The rest of us without millions in discretionary funds will simply select and use companion objects that contain and reflect the cherished values of wabi-sabi for our meager, normal, average lives. One need not be a millionaire (or billionaire) to enjoy them.
