About Japanese Antiques
Natural materials are the hallmarks of Japanese decor, so adding colorful Japanese antiques adds color and interesting details that really pop against a minimalist base. If you lean less toward minimalism but still enjoy Japanese art, look on eBay to the vast network of sellers to find what you are looking for. A Japanese woodblock print is just the right piece to liven up an entryway or to add a splash of Zen to your powder room. Printed on rice paper, these works of art often include a landscape or other natural scene incorporated with Japanese calligraphy. If you are more interested in porcelain, an antique Japanese vase may be more your style. Ginger jars are a popular design. These jars often have a lid, a bulging middle, and bright designs painted on the exterior. They are lovely used solely as a decoration, but they can be useful as well. Japanese antiques add an air of history and culture to your existing space as few other pieces can.
