Japandi sofa styling

The Japandi trend is all about the interplay of the Scandinavian and Japanese design heritage and the shared appreciation of minimalism and nature. 

Working with Japandi as a starting point, interior designer, Marianne Kleis, has worked in a burned colour theme. She has brought together pure lines and different nuances in a low, simple expression that invites visual comfort. The look, in this way, utilises the best of the trend and ensures that the sofa is embraced by the dusty nuances of the season. The look lifts the sofa and brings a modern, fresh look to the room.


“In this interior, I’ve contrasted the warmth and comforts of the designs with minimalist lines and dusty greens. This simple design marries burned colours and clean lines with an elegant toning and select oriental mementos. The result brings out the Japandi trend in a personal, functional aesthetic.”

Styling tip
Combine the organic shapes of the artwork with a stringent placement on the gallery wall to bring out an elegant asymmetry to the expression.
