I found it! The fabric panel in the photograph of my mom in her apartment with my dad looks like it is this fantastic print by Maija Isola and Kristina Isola, two Marimekko designers. A print from 1964 called Kaivo, in three warm, earthtone colors. I am so excited that I hunted this down. I can’t afford to purchase Marimekko fabric quite yet, but someday there will a picture of me just like my mom in our rad pad. Just without the cigarette in hand.
