Marimekko can pretty much do no wrong in my book. The Finnish textile masters have been churning out groundbreaking, eye-catching fabrics since the 1950s, and they remain on the cutting edge of Scandinavian design, commissioning patterns from hot young things like Sanna Annukka and Erja Hirvi.
For fall 2010 they are adding a few styles in twin bedding that would impart bold modern style to any kids room. The Ilta-Aurinko design (shown left) by Noora Niinikoski is an awesome large-scale abstract available in two colorways, one for boys and one for the little ladies. The pattern also comes on bath towels, which would instantly spruce up a kids bathroom.
I’m also loving the new fall colorway of Marimekko’s classic Unniko pattern.
