Inviting Marimekko into Your Home
Why the Finnish Lifestyle brand needs to be on your radar.
Created with the purpose to bring joy into the lives of their audience, Marimekko has been dishing out bold colours, prints and quirky shapes since their inception in the 1950’s. The Finnish lifestyle brand is best known for their signature floral graphic print, joy-inducing mugs and a plethora of design collaborations with the likes of Uniqlo and other design houses. While clothing is certainly a large portion of their offerings, we consider Marimekko to be especially exceptional at crafting homewares.
When it comes to the home, you are spoilt for choice when deciding between what Scandinavian goodness you’ll fill your intimate space with. Like any true Scandinavian piece, Marimekko truly excels when it comes to clever design, clean lines and exquisite materials.
You may recognise iconic shapes like the Urna Vase, range of bathrobes and matching slippers. And, if being totally honest, you cannot go past the simple, yet playful daisy print that adorns almost every product type at Marimekko.
For the kitchen, tableware, ceramics, aprons and oven mitts are offered in a wide variety of prints and colours to ensure continuity can be felt at every touchpoint during a dinner party. Mix-match plates and glassware to turn up the dial on fun, and invest in practical staples like potholders and placements that serve more than just one purpose.
The Marimekko bathroom party can be experienced wrapped in a variety of plush towels, practical bathrobes and styling objects to create warmth.
Bedroom textiles are available to adorn your bed (I’m guilty of owning a few of their duvet covers), wear whilst inside your bed and imagined in little ceramic spots where precious jewellery should keep. Marimekko bedroom can and should be enjoyed by the whole family, no matter how little or big a kid they are.
More delicate glass pieces are perfect as styling tools, water vessels or a home for your knick-knacks. Light a candle housed in a glass orb while sipping some an evening glass of in some delicately beautiful stemware. Heaven.
