The designer clothing collab fetish might just be over, but I have a feeling that design partnerships between interior designers and big box stores has just begun. Having found success with home furnishings by interior design star Nate Berkus, this fall Target launched an upholstered furniture collection with up-and-coming interiors firm Tilton Fenwick (I blogged about it here last month).
More recently (as I reported in the Boston Globe on Sunday), Target has partnered with longtime Finnish textile company Vallila. Available only online, the Vallila for Target furniture collection features an array of living room and bedroom pieces in distinctive prints, including watercolor florals, a city scheme, hearts, and black & white photo-realistic winter trees. The textile designs have the colorful, breezy quality of Marimekko, the other Finnish powerhouse, though not quite as stylized and bold.
If you’ve been thinking your bedroom is blah or your living room needs a lift, may I suggest one of the Vallila x Target floral sofas or abstract upholstered headboards? Could do wonders.
