Marimekko's New Homewares Collection Will Spark Some Joy in Your Everyday Life
Tableware, textiles and ceramics in prints guaranteed to boost your mood.
If this year has taught us anything, it's that reality doesn't always run smoothly and to plan. But, also, that you won't find a much better antidote to life's mess and uncertainties than to focus on the beauty of those small, everyday rituals. A hot cuppa served in your favourite floral mug, an after-work cheese board shared with your bestie, or maybe that homemade dinnertime feast being pulled from the oven, delightful aromas and all.
Whatever minutiae you're into celebrating, Finnish design house Marimekko has just unveiled a new collection of vibrant homewares that'll make those daily rituals feel as beautiful as ever. As with all the brand's creations, these kitchen and dining products offer a joyful nod to the art of printmaking, splashed in a range of striking original prints and awash with plenty of bold hues. And there's something here for every home, taste and colour palette. You can always bank on Marimekko delivering a diverse array of designs, as each of its artists gets free rein to express themselves through their prints, tasked simply with creating products that have soul.
True to form, the new pieces are functional enough to fit your everyday life, but also have a stylish flair that's sure to add a little something special, too. You'll find the latest abstract florals, watercolour-style prints and charming woodland scenes adorning everything from kitchen towels and aprons, to oven mitts and tote bags. Pick up some matching ceramics, with a range of printed mugs, serving platters, plates and other tableware, that'll either inject some joy into your morning coffee routine, or liven up that next dinner party.
