RL Picks: Finland-Inspired Must-Haves

Cheery fabrics and vibrant picks for the home


A country with one of the longest winters, Finland gave birth to the cheery fabrics of Marimekko, the sculptural furniture and architecture of Alvar Aalto, and the vibrant, floral prints of Josef Frank—inspired in part by their otherworldly landscape. Infuse your home with the same friendly modernist vibe with these Scandi pieces.
