At Remodelista, Japanese design is one of our touchstones: It's our reminder that simplicity requires rigor, that tranquillity is attainable, and that it's high time we did some decluttering. This week, we're shining a light on our favorite work being created right now in Japan and beyond—and learning by example. Above: Rustic style at Eatrip , the Chez Panisse of Tokyo.

Tuesday Above: In Tuesday's Furniture roundup, Christine explores the George Nakashima legacy: live-edge wood applied to a range of wabi-sabi designs, including this dining table by Nakashima's daughter, Mira.
