Although summer is already underway, designers everywhere are looking ahead towards the fall. In the world of art, home décor, and of course fashion, one must constantly be ahead of the rest and continuously innovating. One such designer, Scandinavian house Marimekko, has done just that and debuted its new AW16 Interior Home Collection.
What began in Finland, 1949 as one creative’s dream soon sprouted into an internationally recognized brand. This brand has stood for creativity and invention ever since their first printed fabric was conceived. After conquering the fashion world with bold and bright patterns, Marimekko dove into the world of home décor with the same mindset regarding simplistic designs and eye-catching patterns. Marimekko has consistently created new, fresh, and fun designs and this fall home collection is no exception.
Done in dark, neutral and rich tones, the designs of pillows, bowls, and even aprons look extremely luxe. The simple, round shape of plates and mugs are offset by their interesting designs, such as Unikko (the rebel flower), which helped to further the popularity of the brand in the 1960s. This new collection also features additions like candlestick holders, faux-fur pillows, printed cork place mats, and leather-handled serving dishes among their already beloved pieces. While furnishing a home in all Marimekko would make for a really vibrant space, even just one Marimekko piece can make a bold statement in a home, especially if it is a colorful accent to an otherwise neutral home.
Even though autumn seems years away, it's a good idea to begin the hunt now for décor and accessories that will make your home feel like a truly welcoming space. These and other affordable and interesting Marimekko pieces can be found online at Marimekko.com as well as in select retail and Marimekko flagship stores!
