How to achieve the ‘Japandi’ aesthetic with Nitori and The Seasons Residences

OCTOBER 27, 2022

One interior design trend that has taken over not just the internet and social media but also many of our actual homes is Japandi, a portmanteau of Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics both in name and in concept. Characterized by clean, minimalist arrangements, light and earthy colors like white and natural wood accents, and including elements of nature, Japandi has become a top design style thanks to its easy achievability and the sense of cleanliness, sophistication, and calm that it brings.

This aesthetic emphasizes functionality and a sense of order, keeping things to a minimum and reducing clutter. For many, this aesthetic wasn’t just about creating a clearer physical space, it also helped to ease one’s headspace with its lighter visuals and natural feel.

The first Nitori in the Philippines is located at MITSUKOSHI BGC

With the opening of MITSUKOSHI BGC, the first Japanese mall in the Philippines, and subsequently the entry of the leading Japanese furniture and home decor brand, Nitori, it’s become easier for Filipinos to achieve the design and comfort characteristic of Japanese homes.

Nitori, Japan’s largest home-furnishing retailer, offers high-quality products at reasonable price points, making comfort and good design accessible. And “good design” here isn’t just a subjective point. Many of the products featured on Nitori’s shelves have received Good Design Award citations from the Japan Institute of Design Promotion (you can easily spot them on the shelves thanks to the red G Mark on their labels).

Japan’s No. 1 Interior Retailer

At Nitori, many of the items also embody both aesthetic and functionality—some perfectly apt for the Philippine lifestyle. Nitori at MITSUKOSHI BGC offers a wide array of high-quality and practical yet affordable home décor and furniture for everyday use. A unique offering is the N-Cool line of blankets, pillows, and sheet toppers with cool-to-the-touch technology.

Nitori aims to “enrich the homes of people all over the world.”
Japan’s leading furniture retailer also offers home décor products with one-stop services.

Nitori also has its own studio, which has various furniture designs suitable for different areas of the home. The designs feature various wood finishes and fabric materials, so customers can truly make the furniture piece their own. Like the special technology in their beddings, several of Nitori’s furniture lines also have specialized materials. For their dining chairs, for example, a special N-Shield Fabric is used, making it resistant to food spills, stains, and even scratches.

Ultimate Japanese shopping experience

NITORI joins the roster of beloved Japanese brands that launched their Philippine expansion by putting down roots at MITSUKOSHI BGC.

This iconic lifestyle destination offers a variety of premium retail experiences, including Japanese grocer MITSUKOSHI Fresh, modern beauty house MITSUKOSHI Beauty, fashion labels Snidel and Fray I.D., bookstore Fully Booked x Kinokuniya, and a collection of Asian flavors at Itadaki Food Court.

With all these products now easily accessible at MITSUKOSHI BGC, that simple, functional, yet sophisticated Japanese lifestyle is now within reach.
