Marimekko Part II: Home

Since there are so many great products available at Marimekko, I thought that it deserved two blog entries... Being someone that loves pattern in the home, I am always inspired by the fabrics, colors and designs by this company. Anytime I use a fabric or piece by Marimekko in a room I immediately feel like it breathes a new life, humor and lightness into the space and even better, it is without fail that it is a focal point or conversation starter! 

Dinnerware is like the jewelry on a table setting, and this Aarre plate designed by Maija Louekari takes this premise to a literal sense! I love this intertwining pattern of necklaces and jewels, available in either red or black. 

Grab a pillow cover made in this rich green jewel tone and you will have a perfect accessory for a sofa or side chair!  

This well known  Kivet patterned terry towel has been in production since 1956 and continues to be one of Marimekko's most popular designs. Available in red, blue or white- all perfect for the bath!
