International interior design exhibition “Interior lifestyle Tokyo” was hold in Tokyo last week. 769 brands participated from Japan and overseas. 28,119 people visited for 3 days. That was maximum in the past.
One of Japanese interior design tends is “refocusing on Japanese traditional culture”. But, it does not mean “back to the old days”.
They are redesigned more stylish for adjusting to modern lifestyle by utilizing the traditional skills.
Most of them are so-called “traditional crafts”. A lot of people used to have mindsets that “traditional crafts” had to be protected. Therefore, Japanese traditional crafts had not changed and kept making same things in the same way for long time.
In recent years, their strict craftsman spirit have become more flexible.
These interior items are no longer just for special events, such as cereblating New year, add spice to daily life.
