MILFORD - Everyone's place
Citta Design's First Store on the Shore!
Citta Design presents enduring design staples and limited edition seasonal collections for lifestyle and home that are always fresh and original. With each collection, they share a global design story through the pattern, colour and texture of the products and textiles, encouraging their customers to be curators at home – sharing their personal stories through the objects that surround them. From this month, Citta Design will have a base on the Shore with a gorgeous new store opening in Milford Centre on October 15th.
Based on a relaxed antipodean philosophy of life and travel, their products are designed in New Zealand to be useful, beautiful and even a little bit fun.Developed under the direction of Senior Designer Imogen Tunnicliffe, the collections take inspiration from the world’s unique cultures.
The company was founded by CEO Margot Acland, initially setting up as an importer and retailer of Italian ceramics. Margot very quickly grew the importing and wholesaling side of the business and over the last 10 years has fostered an ethos of original design and quality products, and developed the Citta Design brand to what it is today.
Since August 2013 the brand has grown rapidly, opening two new stores in Auckland, one in Wellington and one in Hamilton, which opened last month, and its first flagship store in Sydney. With Citta Design’s summer collections having a strong beach and outdoor selection, including hammocks, bean bags, beach towels and kitchenware for outdoor entertaining, the brand has had its sights set on a North Shore store location for a while now.
"With customers travelling far afield to visit our Auckland stores in Grey Lynn, Mt Eden and Britomart, we know that our customers have been eager for us to open on the shore for a while now. We’re thrilled to be opening at The Milford Shopping Centre and look forward to bringing our full collection closer to our customers on the shore," said CEO Margot Acland.
The Milford Citta Design store will be opening on October 15th with the new summer collection ‘A Midsummer Daydream’ inspired by the exotic city of Hanoi and its exciting convergence of history with modernity, and energy with serenity.
This season the design style references traditional handcrafting techniques and embraces delicate imperfection in a contemporary way. This brings an informal, fresh feel and relaxed texture to the collection which is all about finding precious moments of peace away from the bustle of
Simple and unfussy without bold, hard edges, patterns celebrate the imperfect and handmade. Traditional ceramic floor tiles lend mellow tones to cushion covers, as do botanicals, in both florals and foliage. The collection is designed to make your home a cool and comfy sanctuary throughout a long and balmy summer.
