for Contemporary Dwellings
we believe in providing customers
with “furnishings that come
to life in modern living spaces.”
We seek to provide
all our art loving customers
with objects that bring them peace
and leave them feeling positive.
Displaying Sacred Art
Have you considered incorporating sacred art into your home decor? Even a small sacred object can bring a sense of dignity to a room, filling it with classical serenity. We’re particularly fond of early relics from the Asuka to Heian periods but enthusiastically handle works from the Kamakura to Edo periods, too. Our goal is to provide you with a selection of quality pieces that fit modern living spaces both in size and taste.
Enjoying Chanoyu Ware
The deep connection between Zen and old Chanoyu ware lends them a calming effect, one that can relieve the stressfulness of every day life. Just hearing the words Chanoyu ware may cause some to think of formality and ceremony, but a favorite tea bowl and a tasty sweet are all one needs to enjoy a private tea. It’s difficult to describe the warmth and feeling that taking tea from an old tea bowl provides. We especially recommend it to those who yet have no taste for tea. Nakagami prides itself on providing you with a selection of tea bowls that have been passed down through the ages, including historically renowned pieces and yet unrecognized masterworks. Our staff is happy to instruct you in the proper maintenance and care for such items, too.
Admiring Small Pieces
As Sei Shōnagon wrote, “…all things small are beautiful.” Pieces we can hold in the palm of our hand surpass large masterworks because the essence of art is so concentrated in them. Whether it’s sacred art, writing tools, incense boxes, etc., we’re confident in our ability to provide you with a wonderful selection of small works for your enjoyment. We’ll help you select the right object for you as well as coordinating its safe keeping with the proper cloth wrapping and paulownia wood box. Our goal is to assist you in assembling a fine and worthy collection.
At NAKAGAMI, we aim to provide the best recommendations
to our customers based on their individual needs.
Feel free to ask us anything. No matter is too small.
