It’s All About Scale

Marimekko’s famous Unikko fabric print made waves in the 1960’s with its signature large-scale flower motif that incited a trend for oversized prints and patterns. Big and bold, the Unikko print became wildly popular and has since remained Marimekko’s most popular pattern. Later introduced in smaller scales called Pieni Unikko and Mini-Unikko, this print can be properly scaled for any project. For example, check out this lovely couch upholstered in a Beige-toned colorway…can you guess what size of Unikko this is?…

Ok, so I posed a trick question earlier but I hope Barbie’s plush sofa gave you a laugh. This adorable doll furniture proves my point about the versatility of the print…available in 3 different sized-flowers; the Unikko pattern can be used for any project big or small.
