West Elm has long appreciated Marimekko’s approach to design, founded on creating products that bring joy for years to come. Brimming with signature bold prints, the brand’s iconic offerings are instantly recognizable, attracting legions of devotees worldwide. The West Elm + Marimekko collection features a carefully curated selection of archival Marimekko prints, including Maija Louekari’s exquisite Kuusikossa and Vellamo designs from 2012 and 2009 respectively. This timeless appeal of the iconic Marimekko prints, paired with West Elm’s modern aesthetic, proved to be a perfect combination for the holiday season. The resulting co-branded collection is a fresh, contemporary, and convivial assortment that can be cherished and passed down for generations.
Jeffrey Hannoosh, Senior Vice President of Product Design at West Elm, states, “We have such admiration and respect for Marimekko’s rich heritage and iconic Scandinavian modern design sensibility. Drawing from Marimekko’s extensive archives, our design teams collaborated to create a collection of eclectic pieces that remix American craft and Finnish holiday tradition.”

The prints chosen for the capsule capture the touch of the hand and perfect imperfections so often present in Marimekko's design language. This collection celebrates the joy of preparing the home for the season's festivities – a feeling that many can relate to, no matter where they live.”
