Still Life


All this cosiness is courtesy of New Zealand’s Città – who’ve just launched their Autumn Winter 20 collection, Still Life.

The collection’s name is a nod to its aesthetic focus on organic shapes and tones taken from nature – think mossy green, earthy neutrals and smoky pepper. There’s loads of linen (bedding, cushions, loungewear and more), warming wood tones and hand-woven baskets. In the textile range, I’m super into all the gingham and tonal check patterns (the grown-up grid) coming through. Everything gingham all the time!

I love seeing a New Zealand brand glow-up. Città have always been strong in soft furnishings, but in the last couple of years they’ve really levelled up their range of in-house furniture and lighting (and other ‘hard homeware’ pieces), with two gifted New Zealand designers  – David Moreland and Nikolai Sorensen – dedicated to this part of the business. The curvy, contemporary Horizon coffee and side tables caught my eye in the Still Life collection, and there’s some very cool new wall hooks coming too.  They’re also expanding their edit of ceramics and glassware – I have my eye on some of the Bower ceramic canisters (it’s so hard to find ceramics with a lid! Not anymore.)

You can check out the entire Still Life collection by Città online now.

Fragment


New from leading NZ designer Simon James, the Fragment collection, which draws its inspiration from modernist architecture. I love Simon’s balance of simplicity and strength – the lines are so heavy, yet the final form is clean, and warm thanks to that solid oak. Also love how the tabletops appear to cantilever from certain angles…

The Fragment collection is also available in Smoked Oak and Black Oak. 


One day, one day, I’ll have this table as my studio desk. *makes a wish*
Also in the Fragment family, the Fragment Coffee Table

There’s that yummy cantilever again…

Arc de Triomphe


 

New from Citta and 100% on my wishlist, the Arc Bed. The beauty about this beauty is that you can purchase the entire bed, or just one of the two separate components – the Arc BedHead, designed to fit onto your existing bed, or the Arc Bed Base.  I mean, look at the base… HELLO leg detail:

 

 

Also, don’t think I didn’t see you, bedside lights. Love the simple dome shape of the Moon Table Lamps (there’s also a Moon Floor Lamp version, and both come in almond pink, white, charcoal or mint.)

Atlas


Same but different – the Atlas tabletop swivels to re-position

New from New Zealand designer Nathan Goldsworthy, the Atlas Table. Crafted from solid blocks of Oak (on the base), with a disc top shaped from New Zealand Rimu – love the use of two different timbers. The top swivels and moves so it can be positioned perfectly. I’ve also spied a taller, smaller sidetable Atlas on the Goldsworthy Studio Instagram, hoping Nathan releases that soon too.
