>Tranquil simplicity, rustic elegance, imperfect beauty...these are qualities that wabi sabi embraces. 
>Wabi Sabi is a Japanese expression meaning "wisdom in natural simplicity." Wabi Sabi helps us to see the beauty in imperfection, to discover that our unique flaws also can lead us to our greatest strengths and treasures.
