I was really excited to see this design, it looked like just the type of curtain I had been searching for and I ordered it at finnstyle.com. I just wanted to mention a couple of things if you are considering this curtain (I should have looked to see if they have it at my Anthropologie like NY Muhtari mentioned). Like pudgy-girl says, the size is slightly bigger than most standard American shower curtains - it's 71 x 79 and most US liners are about 70 x 70 so you may need to raise your shower bar if you can, or get it shortened. (There are about 5 inches of white space at the bottom if you want to shorten it). There is also a line of text on the right side that says "(c) Marimikko OYJ Suomi - FInalnd Maija Louekari 2004: "Kaiku" in bold black letters - you might want to either trim this off or fold it over so you don't see it (this isn't shown on the photos I found on the web). There are 4 inches of white space a the top where the grommits are, so some of the pictures you find on the web are a little deceiving - it looks like the trees flow to the top but they don't. I would like to trim the curtain at the top and redo the grommits, but that would be a bit of a hassle. Finally, the color was a bit more on the lime green side than I was hoping for. There appears to be another curtain posted on http://www.scandinaviandesigncenter.com/Products/usd0/Carpets/Bath room artcles/4037 with a different color palette (blue sky), if you prefer more blue. I think it's still a very pretty pattern, however.
