Marimekko at Crate & Barrel
This week, Marimekko launched its fourth and fifth shops at Crate & Barrel in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The two companies have collaborated for four decades so it makes sense that Marimekko is growing its North American retail presence by launching small shops within existing Crate & Barrel stores. The first shop-in-a-shop opened in SoHo last fall and since then, the company has launched another store in New York City and one in Chicago. On Thursday, we made our way to San Francisco's Union Square shopping district for this city's new Marimekko boutique.

Set the table with a special treat. Food is optional. Sami Ruotsalainen designed the simple, clean shape while Maija Louekari created her Siirtolapuutarha pattern for the forms in the collection so that each piece tells a different part of the story. We love the reference to simple holiday ornaments in the crisp red and green. Part of the Oiva dinnerware collection created just for Marimekko.
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.
