West Elm has announced a second collaboration with Marimekko, a Finnish design house. The new limited-edition collection is designed with summer lounging in mind, celebrating color and Marimekko’s patterns. The assortment includes sofas and chairs, water-resistant indoor/outdoor pillows, a hammock and beach umbrellas featuring marigold, poppy reds and cobalt blues.  

The new summer assortment will build upon consumer demand for pairing Marimekko’s prints with West Elm’s modern aesthetic. Marimekko prints featured in the Summer Collection include Primavera (1972) and Kaivo (1964) by Maija Isola and Papajo (1968) by Annika Rimala. 

“We are so excited to be working with Marimekko for our second exclusive product partnership,” says Jeffrey Hannoosh, senior vice president, product design, West Elm. “These celebrated and iconic prints originally created in the 1960s and 1970s were selected for their signature Marimekko style and embody an optimism that is perfect for summer life outdoors.”
