Yearning for a little simplicity in your life? Maybe you need a little Zen décor to transform your home into an oasis of tranquility. This pair of Slate Wall Sconces will serve as a constant reminder to simplify your life.
Zen home furnishings are known for incorporating natural elements like stone to bring nuanced tones and textures into the home environment. In keeping with the simple design of Japanese décor, these artfully created wall sconces are made from naturally quarried slate stone. Each sconce is etched with a graceful calligraphic design bearing the Japanese symbol for “Simplicity.” Plus, the soft lighting provided by wall sconces lends itself well to a peaceful state of mind.
The Japanese have long valued Simplicity, and it remains a key element of Zen philosophy. In addition to decorating your space with low profile home furnishings in neutral tones, a Zen lifestyle is lived out in many other forms. According to the web site, ZenHabits, “Simplicity is the peak of civilization”. But simple living has a different meaning for everyone. For some, it means spending time doing what is important to you, and eliminating all but the essentials. To others it can mean “decluttering” your space and limiting media consumption.
In this era of instant gratification, high-tech gadgets, and constant “busyness”, surrounding yourself with Zen home furnishings is one way of decompressing at the end of the day. Why not start your journey toward simplicity by decorating your home with this beautifully detailed pair of wall sconces? The natural slate backdrop is rich in earth tones because it is quarried from the earth and contains no artificial resins. Because each stone is unique, each sconce is a one-of-a-kind piece of functional art. Each one holds up to a 2” pillar candle or votive holder and measures 4” wide by 7” tall. These Slate “Simplicity” Wall Sconces make a great gift!
