marimekko



i have fallen totally in love with these new patterns from marimekko! i have never been a fan of the marimekko flower pattern and frankly always though of marimekko as a mom-thing :) but these cups and patterns are so perfect i can't get them out of my mind!

Cecilie: You really should! thank you for your sweet words about the blog, im glad you like it! and its good to have another amager-reader!
Emma: Ja! De er virkelig et godt match!
BB: :) fika is a swedish word for drinking coffee together (tea and cake is allowed too) or taking a coffee break. All my swedish readers must correct me if there is a better explanation. When i studied in malmö it meant taking a coffee break. its a really good word.
Katrine: Ja, jeg ville virkelig gerne have penge til at spise mere ude, men det er faktisk en af de første ting vi skærer væk. Man kan jo altid lave god billig mad derhjemme.
Maike: Yeah i love the connection too! the box is a b&o speaker! i really love its look and it matches the pictures too!
Angie: :) glas you like it! check out Lisens other stuff
Marie: Det må du da. Rammen på Shrigley billedet var med da vi fik det, så den er jeg ikke sikker på hvor er fra. Den sorte ramme er en metalskifteramme fra føtex såmænd:)

I like those too, saw it in a store yesterday! I LOVE some of the marimekkodesigns (maija louekari & samujussi koski!) but like you, I've never liked the flowers..

Woooow! These are stunning! I've been a huge fan of Marimekko for a long time (also the flowers :) I think it's because I connect it very much to my childhood. My mum made a lot of things for me out of different Marimekko textiles. This new collection is great - I had not seen it before your hint, but I'll definitely have to go and check it out soon. Especially the blue tins attract my attention! Thanks for sharing!

Ha ha! So funny... only in Scandinavia where good design is ubiquitous amongst the general public could Marimekko be a 'mom thing' Love it.
I do completely understand that feeling though... I'm assuming Bang & Olufsen and the Artichoke lamp also fall under the moniker of 'things my parents were into'
Hope all is well with you.
All the best

It's true -- Marrimeko has a younger profile abroad... Wonderful word, fika, must get it into my own vocab... In the last few years when I became a bit obsessed with Arne Jacobsen, I realized that the tea service my mother always used when I was a child was his design. Furthermore, I learned that they had bought the milk and sugar container when they were visiting Copenhagen as a thing to bring back... So 30 + years later, when I was back in Copenhagen, despite the terrible exchange rate I had to take back some Jacobsen design with me (actually the whole trip was a Jacobsen pilgrimage). I ended up getting the cake server.... BB
