FinnStyle will carry Marimekko's new line of upholstery fabric.

Looking for sophisticated and unique upholstery fabric? FinnStyle today announced that it will be carrying new Marimekko upholstery fabric. Finnish textile company Marimekko -- the originator of trend-setting bold patterns of the 60s and 70s -- has quietly become one of the leading sources of contemporary upholstery fabrics in Europe and Japan.

Marimekko's upholstery collection ( began a few years ago with some of the best patterns from their award-winning in-house designers. The first collection was a huge success and production has increased each season. 2007 is a very exciting year because Marimekko commissioned new upholstery designs from top Nordic designers Björn Dahlström, Anna Danielsson, Harri Koskinen and Ilkka Suppanen.

While Marimekko is best known for bold, oversized prints, the upholstery fabric collection includes a wide variety of designs and colors that are modern and minimalist, with the aim of evoking positive feelings. Fresh and energetic colors abound, yet the collection includes a variety of strong patterns in subdued hues. It's an extraordinary collection which creates striking contemporary interiors.

All Marimekko upholstery fabrics are washable 100% cotton and most are Teflon-coated. (The few patterns which are not Teflon-coated can be treated for fire protection.) Fabrics come in four weights with Martindale ratings between 20,000 and 45,000.
