Minimalism is a popular trend described as removing what is unimportant from your life and focusing on what matters. This trend applies to internal decor as much as other areas of our lives. Minimalism in interior design however doesn’t mean a stark white room. There is still a place for your personality in the items you choose to surround yourself with. Minimalism doesn’t have to be boring, its a lifestyle choice that is about being deliberate in the items you choose.
- A minimalist design is one that does not focus on non-essential factors, rather hones in on the big four, chiefly aesthetic quality, utility, value and longevity.
- The Lavitta collection, from the Helsinki-based firm, Poiat, exemplify Finnish form and showcase the virtues of simplicity, natural materials and functional appeal.
- The Danish brand, Woud, has created a modern take on the coffee table, simple, smooth and finished in Italian plywood, or concrete.
“Minimalism has been described as:a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom.”
