Some have described the Japanese style of furnishing as “spare” or even “austere” which might refer to their lack of clutter. These spaces are certainly not short on comfort, but much of the actual sitting is done on the floor. Adding Japanese floor cushions and pillows are a great way to soften the looks of a Zen-inspired room, or add comfort to your meditation space.
