Japanese hibachis are traditional heating devices. Made from or lined with a heat proof material. And designed to hold burning charcoal. Today we use these elegant objects as decorative accents in our home. In the image below a Japanese lacquered hibachi holds a bunch of orchids. This image is taken from François Catroux’s latest book by the same name.
