Minimalist interior design ideas. Kumiko shoji japanese lamp. Izutsu is the Japanese term for well curb—the parallel crossed supporting structure around a well—and this pattern has been used in motifs, designs and also literature since ancient times. Yotsuba means “four-leaf”, and tsugi simply means “joint”. There are quite a few different kinds of izutsu. This one is perhaps among the simpler of these patterns, but the uncluttered feel makes it look quite stunning in a row across the width of a shoji or bordering another pattern.
