New Duvet Design from IKEA. Made me look.
A bit too close to Marimekko’s “Kivet” (stones) motif, ( http://www.marimekko.fi/ENG/interior/fabric/verhoilukankaat/collection/kivet_markiisikangas_001.htm ) for my taste. Especially since Marimekko has recently been in the limelight when they rightfully called out an Italian fashionhouse for copying their “Unikko” pattern ( http://www.marimekko.fi/ENG/interior/fabric/maijaisola/unikko )
Pretty bold move. Maija Isola designed internationally celebrated Kivet for Marimekko in 1956.
Sure looks familiar to me too:
Though Ikea is full of similar kind of “coincidences”.
