Unikko is one of Marimekko's best-known and most beloved patterns worldwide, now decorating a warm throw and a stylish cushion.

Poppies for summer and winter

Marimekko's Vesi Unikko throw pairs Maija Isola's iconic floral pattern with simple stripes typical of the Finnish design house. The print was created in collaboration with Isola's family to celebrate the Unikko pattern's 60th anniversary.

Made from luxurious jacquard-woven wool, the Vesi Unikko blanket not only embraces and warms freezing winter nights but also transforms into a picnic blanket on balmy summer days. Besides, isn't there already a subtle promise of spring in these cheerful shades of bright yellow?

The rich and compelling Taika pattern is based on the folklore of Finland and old Slavic fairytales.

Magical creatures in a mystical forest

Klaus Haapaniemi's enchanting Taika pattern is an endless tapestry of lavish details: from sprawling plants and flowers to wild animals, his mystical forest is an infinite realm of discovery. Now, the familiar owl character from the pattern can be found embarking on a new adventure, adorning the handle of scissors made as a collaboration with Fiskars and Iittala. The right-handed universal scissors are manufactured at the Fiskars factory in Billnäs, Finland, and carefully hand-tested to ensure their legendary cutting performance.

Cover Story's flat Alice paint gives the wall or ceiling a matte, velvety smooth finish.

Fall in love with Alice

Finnish Cover Story's interior paints add a hint of that elusive something to your home décor. Their latest shade, 039 Alice, is a delicate pale green, with a gentle touch of grey, that pairs exceptionally well with light wood tones but harmonizes beautifully with darker pine, too.

P.S. Since lighting has a huge impact on how a particular shade looks in reality, we recommend always using a sample before painting. So, if you've fallen for Alice, go ahead and order a convenient paint sample to see how the hue truly looks in your home!
