I love print. I grew up in Finland surrounded by some simple classic designs which were available and affordable to all. Here is a collection of some my favourite textiles from zanders and sons. Bold and simple. From Scandinavia.
Simple monochrome Tiiliskivi (meaning brick stone) cushion cover designed by Marimekko founder Armi Ratia.
The pattern reflects her belief in the beauty of everyday life.
Size: 50 cm X 50 cm
Material: 100% heavy weight cotton
Pikku Lokki (Little Seagul) is another gorgeous print designed by mother daughter team Maija & Kristina Isola for Marimekko. Maija Isola has became Marimekko's most famous and celebrated artist; also a designer behind the beloved Unikko print.
Maija's daughter Kristina joined the iconic design house in 1964 and has been working closely with her mother collaborating on her mother's designs.
Material: lightweight upholstery cotton
Maailman Synty (The Birth of the World) cushion has a print which is inspired by the age old creation myths and the rich Finnish wall rug tradition.
