John Pawson explains the new rules for minimalism in design

The first time I met John Pawson I was delighted to discover that his home was as minimalist as you’d hope. Walking through the doors of his West London home his I was met with nothing but white walls, wood floors, carefully and sparingly curated pieces of furniture. Texture. Warmth. A feeling of invitation.

That’s the clever thing about minimalism in interior design. When done well, specifically when done by John Pawson, it’s nowhere near cool. It’s not stark or startling, it’s soothing, even caressing.
