As stressful as life can be, it’s still not common to find a restful spot in many American homes. Busy families have a hard time controlling the clutter and making the time to create a spot for relaxation, but those who do can take some advice from the Japanese. Zen gardens and sacred spaces often incorporate Japanese garden fountains as a focal point, and designers know they also work on a porch, a sun room or a meditation room.
For families who are looking to transform an indoor space into a peaceful oasis, the use of Japanese garden fountains is a very important element. Below is an overview of some of the more popular fountains now available for sale at Chopa.com.
The Shinto Table Fountain – This lighted fountain is the perfect finishing touch for a relaxing den, sunroom or sacred space in your home. The soothing sound of cascading water adds softness and beauty in this sophisticated stone resin fountain, and an LED light is positioned at the top to accent the water’s movement as it falls over the edge.
A Buddha Serenity Fountain – One of Chopa’s most popular Japanese garden fountains inspires calmness and meditation simply because of its Buddha theme.
