Are you someone who loves the unfinished look in your home, and you know just how to showcase brick walls, cracked crockery or imperfect door and window knobs and handles?

Well, the Wabi Sabi interiors trend or ‘the art of imperfection’, will be right up your street!

Wabi Sabi is a Japanese life philosophy that has been around for centuries. Concepts such as ‘simplicity’, ‘living in harmony with nature’ and ‘the beauty of growing old’ are central to the style and therefore perfectly match the natural materials supplied by Dauby.

Wabi Sabi interior for Serge Anton

Dauby recently worked on an interior for photographer Serge Anton. The aim? To transform his home using Wabi Sabi style, right down to the tiniest details.

You can see the results of our efforts within the house itself, below:

Traditional casting process in sand moulds

The fact that our furniture fittings are hand-cast in sand moulds gives the surface a grainy structure and, here and there, adds a few imperfections.

Our natural materials are also known for their ‘living finish’. This simply means that the older our fittings become, the more intense the colour shading and the more beautiful the result!

So photographer Serge Anton will have to wait a while for the Wabi Sabi style in his home to really come into its own… 😉

Curious about the various mood shots for this project?
