We’re going to get straight to the point: Città is dangerous. Step into any one of their six Auckland stores and you’ll automatically want to buy everything. EVERYTHING. That’s because they’re pros at creating one-of-a-kind design pieces as well as seasonal collections to inject life and style into your home. From beautiful furniture, kitchenware and lighting to funky cushions, bags and gifts, it really is the place of design dreams.
Città is born and bred in New Zealand but inspired by the likes of Paris, India, Tokyo, New York and beyond. Every season, their designers jet-set overseas to soak in colours, patterns and atmosphere, before returning to tell the story through a unique seasonal collection. Their latest is ‘Wish You Were Here, Postcards from Palm Springs’, which features fun and playful designs, just in time for summer!
With locations in Milford, Grey Lynn, Northwest, Mt Eden, and Botany, Città have truly put their stamp on the Auckland homewares scene. They’re always on the pulse when it comes to trends and have everything you could ever want and need for your home. There’s hanging lamps, cosy armchairs, hand woven rugs, rustic ceramics, linen duvet covers, ruffled throws—you name it, Città has got it.
Love the idea of snazzing up your abode, but don’t know where to start? Newmarket, Città’s brand-spanking new flagship store, is designed to offer the ultimate shopping experience. The fit-out is the brainchild of their in-house designers and Paul Izzard Design, who have created spaces replicating bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and lounge areas, so you can see exactly how to style their pieces yourself. There’s even stylists on hand to help!
Summer is here (hurrah!) and Città has all your beach days covered. We’re talkin’ beach bags, towels, sarongs, hats, bean bags and hammocks—all in beautiful patterns and made to last. Stuck for gift ideas? They’ve got that sorted too. Surprise your loved ones with snuggly bathrobes, jewellery boxes or candles, or suss out the man in your life with a stylish satchel or shaving cream by Compagnie de Provence—he’ll be rapt!
Città’s offerings don’t stop there. Alongside gorgeous home essentials are a handful of items for your little angels. From Ziggy Bear and Fletch the Fox to Peggy the Flamingo and Effie the Elephant, Città’s lovingly made children’s toys will quickly become your child’s favourite.
Whether you’re looking for that perfect gift, some pretty new cutlery, or to revamp your entire home, Città is just the ticket. Keep an eye on their new collections—we hear 2017 will see some of their best yet!
