Shopper’s Diary: Marimekko at Crate & Barrel

November 09, 2010 2:30 PM

BY Julie Carlson

On a recent trip to New York, I swung by the new Marimekko shop at Crate & Barrel; founders Gordon and Carole Segal first discovered the line on a trip to Denmark in the 1960s; so the new shop-within-a-shop in SoHo is a homecoming of sorts (the collection will be available online in spring 2011). Of special interest: the well-priced upholstery fabrics, the In Good Company Line of ceramics, and the array of throw pillows. Go to Crate & Barrel for location information.

Above: The full range of colorful glassware by Marimekko for Iittala is on offer.

Above: The In Good Company Dots line from Marimekko is available in-store only.

Above: A wide range of pillows in patterns such as Joonas (L) and Rautasanky (R) is for sale.
