Scandinavian Design: Marimekko Spring 2010

leave a comment »

I’ve been meaning to have a weekly feature on Scandinavian design for quite some time now, but I’m still lacking a fresh and fun name for it. Any thoughts?

While we wait for creative genius to strike however, here are three of my favorite fabrics from the Spring 2010 Marimekko collection. Although the Finnish company certainly stands by their classic prints, like Unikko, I always love the new stuff that they come up with.

And then of course there are the always amazing kitchen designs; perfect for waiting on warmer weather and mornings spent drinking coffee in the garden.

You can check out other designs on the Marimekko Always Mod blog here.
