I have never batted a lash at Crate and Barrel, but since the purchase of my first home (yay!), I'm looking at every page and under every (metaphorical) rock possible to collect decor ideas. Before I chucked the catalog in the trash as usual, I literally gasped at what I thought was my subconscious being rude and teasing me. Yes, Marimekko is selling their iconic designs with Crate and Barrel.
Marimekko is one of my favorite brands. Not only do they make the best textiles, but two of my favorite dresses are from Marimekko, and they are both equally worth every dollar. I'm not familiar with C&B's quality, but I do know Marimekko's quality is amazing and one of the reasons I will always be customer (plus their cuts and styles are timeless. They still recycle the same patterns since the 60's. I'm sure I'll be wearing it when I'm in my 60's!) I'm really hoping some quality is going into the collaboration.
I was having a really hard time figuring out how to decorate. Now, I'm having a hard time figuring out what to buy. Below are some of my favorites, but feel free to choose your favorites here.
