Inspirations and influences.
The Tokonoma Series was inspired by the Asian art displayed in tokonomas alcoves. As the sacred center of a traditional Japanese home, tokonomas were reserved for treasured items like scrolls or calligraphy, beautiful kimonos, ikebana flower arrangements, miniature bonsai trees, and fine ceramics for tea ceremonies. The items displayed were changed for special occasions, according to the season, or to create different settings and atmospheres.

While every effort is taken to reproduce colors as accurately as possible, monitor colors may vary.
