Marimekko's Pink & Purple Holiday Haze

Marimekko's Pink & Purple Holiday Haze

Marimekko is always a little bit hard to track in the US. They have their hand in a bunch of different places — concept shops, Crate & Barrel, and several scattered retailers all carry their lines, but the aesthetic is unmistakable. Jumping from store to store, we pieced together a solid overview of the Finnish design house's 2010 holiday line. They've re-released a bunch of classic fabrics and patterns in new purples, pinks, and oranges that have a decidedly psychedelic-sixties-Verner-Panton sensibility. Since fabrics are their strong point, the collection includes tea towels, tablecloths, bedspreads, and off-the-bolt textiles. There are also some new trays and tabletop items, and Crate & Barrel — who has an expanding partnership with the Finns — carries a few exclusive things like wrapping paper and textiles from the new purple "Fandango" line.
