PERFECT  IMPERFECT, the beauty of accident, age & patina

An interior design book that embodies a philosophy of thoughtfulness & creativity in living.

Perfect Imperfect takes as its founding principle the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, advocating the beauty to be found in imperfection, impermanence and the authentic. Importantly, this is done without losing sight of the benefits of living in the 21st century, where designers are merging digital technology with the handmade to produce items that combine the best of both worlds.
