What Houzz contributors are saying:
In the dining roomA Japanese guest house wouldn’t be complete without a beautifully presented dining room. In traditional Japan, that would often mean seats that were close to the floor – or even simple mats or cushions – and low-profile tables in the centre of an open space. This is because of the popularity of comfortable tatami mats that historically covered the floors of Japanese homes and guest houses.Get the look: To recreate this look in your own home, keep decorations in your dining room to a minimum to provide a nice clear space for your tatami mats, low dining table and legless chairs or floor cushions. Once again, natural materials and a neutral colour scheme reign supreme, with the uncluttered design allowing the space and all who use it to breathe deeply and embrace equanimity.
