Just Launched: Finnish Up Your Home With The New abc Collection From Artek

If you love the smart furniture from Artek, you'll love how they translated their classic fabrics and aethetics into accessories for home and office. Alvar Aalto's Siena pattern became high-contrast curtains, towels and coasters, while scale rulers, measuring tapes and a carpenter's pencil (among other items) fleshed out a stationary collection by graphic designers Mark Keissling and Birthe Haas of German design studio Griege. The new line intends to serve the needs of everyday life (from A to Z), and launched January 27 at the NYIGF. Peep a few favorites below.
