In Japan’s interior-goods market, the boom in Scandinavian products is by now a well-established phenomenon. Today one select shop, Tempo is spreading the word about style from a different compass point, with ideas from southern Europe. These refined and attractive items focus on four compelling brands.
Abyss & Habidecor is a brand renowned worldwide for its luxurious towels. It is also celebrated for its rugs and mats, whose designers draw their inspirations from far-flung destinations on their worldwide travels. Zoeppritz, a veteran brand with 185 years of history, offers a stunning lineup from blankets to cushions. Another brand, Woouf!, proposes refined yet novel ideas in cushions for sophisticated consumers.
This shop surrounds customers with a plethora of items conveying the distinct appeal of southern Europe. The store is hard at work on plans to launch its own brand, serving notice of its ambitions to offer a bold new palette for modern living.
