After showing up on everything from shower curtains to sneakers, Marimekko’s poppy prints can start to lose their, well, pop. Thus, when the Finnish brand unveiled its 4,000-square-foot flagship last fall, the standouts weren’t the ubiquitous textiles but the tableware. Handmade wineglasses, tumblers, and dessert goblets come in reds, turquoises, oranges, and greens (from $39), and the pieces are as resilient as they are eye-catching: stained-glass and glazed porcelain prints won’t fade over time; birch trays are waterproof and shatterproof.
