So wabi-sabi represents the collaborative work of John and Elizabeth Sterling in wood and fiber mediums. Wabi-sabi is the Japanese aesthetic of understated elegance. A truly wabi-sabi work is very pleasing to your soul. It makes you feel good without being flashy or overwhelming. Everyone needs a little wabi-sabi in their life.

You can find more of John's fine furniture at and read about the beauty and balance of handmande, homegrown, and homemade at their blog
