Marimekko, a Finnish textile company, define their brand as "one that represents the desire for modern lifestyle that is in harmony with the natural environment." Marimekko has evolved into concept stores selling apparel, bags and interior decor. What a great place to find some cool accent pieces. Wish there was an LA store - what a fun place to walk around - almost like an art show.
