Horizontal, vertical, or irregular? The timeless striped pattern looks refreshing this fall and adorns textiles, interior elements as well as furniture. We present 8 products that will add the classic stripe print to your home.
The pioneer of stripes
In Finland, the stripes were popularized by Marimekko's designer Annika Rimala, who introduced the iconic Tasaraita collection in 1968. The timeless black-and-white print suits both a minimalist and colorful bedroom, and the high-quality cotton jersey guarantees a good night's sleep.
Brighten up with cushions
Stripes are a beloved choice, especially in textiles. The Grand cushions from Ferm Living’s new collection delight with inspiring pattern and color combinations. Made of a blend of linen and cotton, the pillow covers combine traditions with modern style. The Grand cushions will arrive to Finnish Design Shop in late autumn 2021.
Vertical pattern from Italy
Artek’s Siena gives a little twist to traditional striped patterns. Designed by Alvar Aalto in 1954, the graphic Siena is inspired by the marble tile walls of the medieval cathedral of Piazza del Duomo. The lively and captivating Siena print was recently introduced in new colors and it charms on curtains, sofa cushions, or tablecloths, among other things.
A cup of joy
Iittala's Origo series caught attention during the millennium with its functional design and bold stripes. The charm of the colorful Origo, designed by Alfredo Häberli, lies in its versatility and compatibility with other Iittala dishes. Only a few striped items will enliven the whole table setting!
Play with details
HAY’s cheerful range of candles will grow in late autumn with the addition of Stripe candles. The playful striped candles charm in several different color combinations and create a fun interior detail in both brighter and more subdued colors.
If you are afraid of bold prints, rely on one eye-catching stripe! The special edition of Artek's Aalto stool features a hand-painted line. Designer Valerio Di Lucente’s idea was to highlight the most defining element of Alvar Aalto’s design, the L-leg. Multiple stools together create a playful pattern effect.
Designed by Ditte Reckweg and Jelena Schou Nordentoft, the ceramic Omaggio vase enlivens the home both individually and in groups, bringing a modern addition to a table or windowsill. The horizontal lines of the vase are a tribute to the ceramic artist Svend Hammershøi, who often utilized a similar pattern in his creations.
The toe warmer
The carpet upgrade will do wonders for the room. The Woodnotes' Fourways rug with a wide striped pattern is made of paper yarn and cotton as well as treated to repel dirt. Designed by Ritva Puotila, the natural-colored rug catches the eye, for example, in the living room.
