We are not ready to say goodbye to summer yet, however Marimekko’s fall/winter 2016 home collection gives us a gentle introduction to the beauty of the fall and beyond. It is exploring the space between fantasy and reality, and how this dialogue can be combined with Marimekko’s inclusive and functionalistic design approach. The collection includes prints by Finnish designer icons, such as Oiva Toikka, Maija Isola and Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi, and creates an interesting interplay with more recent prints by Aino-Maija Metsola, Maija Louekari and Sanna Annukka.
The first home collection arrivals in late summer are perfect for keeping cosy on the veranda and slowly getting in the mood for fall. The collection includes soft tones of brown, grey and blue, and it includes interesting textures, such as elegant and warm wool blankets as well as woven and fake fur cushions. The collections also includes new additions to the ceramic Oiva tableware’s Siirtolapuutarha (‘city garden) range.
The winter arrivals, starting from mid fall, introduce surprising juxtapositions and interesting ideas for dressing the home for the winter months, for festive moments as well as relaxed evenings spent with family and friends. The collection features warm of reds, greys and greens with a splash of pink. It combines iconic prints by Katsuji Wakisaka and Maija Isola with new, charming prints by Sanna Annukka.
The collection also introduces novelties for festive table settings. New candle holders by Sami Ruotsalainen, bring warm light to dark winter days. The new serving dish, also designed by Ruotsalainen, features an elegant, removable leather handle. Vases, designed by Carina Seth Andersson, will be seen in new seasonal colours that complement festive tables.
The fall/winter home collection from Marimekko will be available online soon.
