Happy Harvest and Cosy Chilling



Happy Harvest and Cosy Chilling are two inspirational themes for the autumn 2009 collection of Sokos home. Happy Harvest tells about colourful autumn, joy of being together and safe everyday life and Cosy Chilling includes a hint of an eastern mystique taking influence of folklore and dark colours.

The design process of the textiles included studying trends and studying forecasting them and familiarizing with trend experts and agencies. There were five main topics for autumn 2009, of which two themes, Happy Harvest and Cosy Chilling, were formed.

Four prints were designed as the bases for the collections. Kippo & Kuppo for Happy Harvest collection exhibits everyday cupboard and Marjassa bed linen takes influence on autumn scenery. Cosy Chilling theme forms of dotty, fairy tale like flower Unihiekka bed linen as well as print Flore, which presents Finnish folklore. Prints and colours designed for textiles were also used for home decoration and table-ware products to create a coherent look for home.

The thesis has been done in co-operation with Intrade Partners Oy.
