Marimekko Brings Me Happiness!

It’s Coming!! *Drumroll Please* Marimekko is officially coming stateside.

Marimekko is a Finnish company known for their unique prints and fabrics. Popularized by Jackie Kennedy in the 1960 Presidential race, Marimekko started out in dresses and has since expanded to accessories and home decor (pairing with Crate&Barrel, also in the 1960s).

While I love their fabric prints when being used for clothes, I think using Marimekko in the home is a great, easy way to incorporate bold colors and patterns into your home in a fun and cheery way.


WWD reports:

Marimekko’s online shop will go live this summer. The Finnish firm is working in partnership with Method in New York to develop the site. In addition, by the end of 2013, Crate & Barrel plans to open 22 Marimekko shop-in-shops in its stores. This spring, shops will open in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The first Marimekko shop opened in the SoHo Crate & Barrel in October. A Marimekko shop will also be added to the Crate & Barrel e-commerce site.”
