Crate & Barrel introduces a new online store dedicated to the celebrated Finnish home supplier.
By this time every year, Seattleites are longing for some flowers and sunshine to brighten up the overcast days. Rather than wait for Mother Nature to get her act together, feel free to make your own spring color using Marimekko‘s vibrant designs.
This Finland-based clothing, textile and home decor designer has been in business since 1951, providing everything from cutlery and coffee mugs to shower curtains and duvet covers. Marimekko’s distinctive prints and bold colors can be easily mixed and matched to fit one’s personal needs, an attribute that has earned the company a devoted following on the other side of the Atlantic.
Now, thanks to Crate & Barrel, this innovative brand will now receive a wider American audience. The Marimekko Shop is the most recent addition to Crate’s web-based shopping network. This site allows visitors to browse – and purchase – hundreds of exclusive items, including glassware, pillows, fabrics and much more. Marimekko bags and accessories, as well as their premium bedding collection, are also available for purchase on this site.
The partnership between Crate & Barrel and Marimekko has existed for nearly 50 years, and was founded on a common goal of providing customers with high-quality home products. The newly-opened Marimekko Shop is the latest development in this long-lasting collaboration. In addition, real-life Marimekko Shops will be opening at Crate & Barrel locations in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco throughout the month of May.
