Editor Sarah Rich: "I'm an enthusiastic collector of kitchen tools and cookbooks from decades past. Whether it's a brightly colored enamel corkscrew or a recipe compilation from Gold Rush-era California, I will always find a place for vintage cookery in my kitchen. The holidays tend to be the primary time when I turn my attention from foraging for cast-off treasures to checking out what's new on the market. Here are a few picks I wouldn't mind giving (or receiving) this year."
Chances are your bedside reading doesn’t include Finland’s national epic, The Kalevala, but that should not preclude you from tucking
in under textiles imprinted with folkloric patterns inspired by the 50-part poem. Sanna Annukka’s new collection for Marimekko includes her rendition of the mythical Sampo.
The Kaivo Tray by Marimekko features a lesser known pattern by desingersn Maija Isola and Kristina Isola, who also created the company's iconic Unikko floral graphics. In addition to the tray, the pattern is also available on tea towels and a mug.
