Marimekko Store Opens at Crate & Barrel's SoHo Location
October 14, 2010,
NEW YORK-Crate & Barrel has launched its first store within a store in its SoHo location here, with the grand opening of the Marimekko Shop.
Crate & Barrel's relationship with the Finnish design firm goes back decades, but the shop takes the partnership to a new level and expands into more Marimekko product categories. In addition to Marimekko textiles such as bedding and tablecloths already offered at Crate & Barrel, the new shop also features such items as jewelry, bibs and other baby products, totes, and raincoats. Some upholstered pieces and lighting items are also exclusive to the store.
Next Spring, the Marimekko Shop will launch on Crate & Barrel's Web site.
