Scandinavia obviously has the global upper hand in all things kitsch. Marimekko is just another Finnish design powerhouse with worldwide recognition in textile design. I got my first taste of their bright splashy designs at Quirk, where we carried a few lines of their goods and I fell in love. Their lines of clothes, interior decorations, and bags all carry their signature bright and modern designs, and now they've introduced wallpaper!

This is just another motivator for me to get my own house. Design*Sponge offered the first look at this exciting venture here, and I was blown away. Texture and pattern rules without overwhelming the rooms, while keeping with the Marimekko aesthetic. The line is launching at IIDEX in Canada this month, and their new line of autumn fabrics are available to view here.
