The Finnish Line

Marimekko x Target collaboration has some killer summer tableware options

Don't get us wrong, we like (OK, love) beautiful fine china and handcrafted pottery like the pieces from Wynne Noble as much as the next food obsessive. But when it comes to outdoor summer dining it's nice to keep a table—or a picnic blanket—summery and fun. Enter Marimekko x Target.

The Finnish design house and the mega retailer collaborated on a slew of products that will be released on Target's website and in stores this Sunday. Pretty much all of the table- and kitchenware items are south of the $30 price mark, including sets of four salad plates in sunny yellows and bold blues, serving platters, kitchen towels that channel the 1970s and pitchers that come with glasses in an ombre of hues.

Target's collaborations typically sell out very quickly. So please excuse us while we go set an alarm on our phones.
