Last night we had the pleasure of stopping by the Marimekko store-within-a-store at Crate & Barrel Soho in New York for cocktails and a preview of the highly anticipated space, which opens to the public today. Filled with accessories, bed and bath textiles, bags and even a hint of apparel, the space pays homage to the brandâ€™s signature hues and patterns on a grand scale. Not one to deny a pop of color, I think Iâ€™ll take mine in the form of the glassware collection that littered the table displays at every turn. Available in three jewel-tones, the pitchers and tumblers would be the perfect, punchy accent to any fall tablescape. Crate & Barrel is considering ecommerce options and expanding the store-in-store concept to other locations as well. We’ll keep our eyes peeled! — Sarah C.
