In traditional Japanese architecture, one almost invariably finds a tokonoma (art or flower alcove). Adorned with hanging scrolls and flower arrangements that represent the seasons, this is the space that Japanese consider the most important as the face of hospitality to their guests. In that space, a gorgeous, magnificent kumiko-style drawing room shoji screen and transom were set up. Adjoined Japanese-style rooms have recently all but disappeared, but it goes without saying that authentic Japanese-style rooms have unique refinement and dignity. 

Tradition means to connect  I once again felt that we, too, should try to communicate the merits of Japanese harmony through the creation of kumiko.
