The other day, we were shopping at the local Tarjay when I happened upon some new dining ware. Now, I am wont to keep tabs on the dishware department at Target, because you never know who will be stunt-designing for them (see Orla Kiely, John Derian, Liberty of London). Well, these pieces happened to be house pieces, the Target brand, but by God didn’t they smack of a little Marimekko? Super Scandinavian. Also reminded me of Ikea themes. I very much love the lack of symmetry–it’s just fun, ya’ll!!

I’m intrigued enough to possibly buy some. No sense in being a complete label snob. Even if Orla Kiely is still selling strong on eBay.
