When I first got a peek of the new Marimekko Merivuokko line by designer/artist Kustaa Saksi, I knew I had to have it. I started with the mug, because I think mugs are the one category of dinnerware in which it’s best to be eclectic. I have a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and patterns to suit a variety of preferences. On a dull February day, it’s nice to have a couple of friends over for hot chocolate, and it’s easy to remember whose mug is whose when they’re all different.
I noticed my mugs had a lot of turquoise and teal like the Merivuokko mug, as well as pink, like the iittala Sarjaton Letti Rose Mug. It’s funny how themes pop up when you just buy what you love.
I’m so pleased with my Marimekko Merivuokko Mug. Not only is it pretty, but it’s dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer safe, so I can put it to use without worry.
Do you have a mixed mug collection?
