Dwelling, Fine Objects

Everyday Minimalist Objects

January 15, 2016

Janaki Larsen Ceramics / Everyday Objects Design / Minimalist ObjectsWith so many fine design objects and home accessories available today, it’s so easy to get charmed and even easier to get caught in a trap of an assembling activity of “too many things”. Therefore, our everyday lives constantly demand the practice of curating. And even if we are devoted to minimalist living, it is crucial to understand the principles of simplicity. Then we perceive objects as they truly are, somehow understanding better their aesthetical, utilitarian or even a purely decorative purpose. And we easily can forget about those things that will be useless to us. When our mind is composed and we are in the state of clarity, we perceive beauty with an absence of pretentiousness, which leads us to good decision making and curating, both in our spaces and everyday lives.

In the selection below, we listed more than a few beautiful minimalist objects and whilst some of these have purpose and beauty, some are just decorative objects. As we said, it’s so easy to become a collector, but being the curator is a true challenge. And always be aware that you cannot write in two notebooks, no matter how pretty they are, at the same time.
