- refers to a particular aesthetic of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty
- to do things beautifully without making them excessive or gaudy
- beautiful by being understated, or by being precisely what it was meant to be and not elaborated upon
- understated elegance, utility (each piece serves an important function), rare beauty, and unobtrusive sophistication
