Marimekko at CB2

What is it about Finland that allows its companies to constantly produces the most amazing and beautiful designs? I must go there and find out what’s in the water. Case in point: Marimekko. The Finnish textile and clothing design company was established in 1951, and are still producing some of the most seriously beautiful fabrics and textiles today.

I was in the new (insanely awesome) San Francisco CB2 store last weekend with the Rachels, and I noticed they are now selling Marimekko fabric wall hangings! And they’re on sale! A cool alternative to wallpaper or posters, or even as room dividers, the 59″Wx90″H fabric panels have two aluminum rails for easy hanging. There are only a few patterns at CB2, unfortunately none of which I find particularly spectacular, but online fabric super haven Reprodepot has a huge selection of Marimekko panels (including my all-time favorite, HO-HOI!, pictured above. I will own you someday!), as well as other vintage reproductions, if you wanted to make your own.

    alex, i hope that you don’t devote a section of this awesome website to your experiments with fad diets. that was OUR idea!!! but i guess using yourself as a culinary guinea pig wouldn’t really fit with the cool and artsy focus that you have going here, so maybe i don’t need to worry.

    i miss you and i love the website!!!!
