Città – Designer Objects

Together Journal Founder and Editor Greta Kenyon recently visited Città to pick out some of her favourite interior pieces from the current collection. And although goods can’t be shipped until Level three, we thought now was the perfect time to get you thinking about some design decisions for your home since we are all currently spending so much time within. Once we hit L3, some new home additions will feel very ​much deserved.

Aiko Sofa

Aiko Wide 2 Seater Sofa

Città has a wonderful collection of sofas and ottomans which can be customised to suit different tastes. I was immediately drawn to the Aiko sofa collection because of its modern shape. I also love how versatile it is; you can choose from so many options, two-seaters, three-seaters, a wider option, open-ended, or with pr without chaise.

It’s amazing how different it can look depending on the colour and fabric you choose. And we love that it is designed in the New Zealand Città studio by David Moreland and Nikolai Sorensen and is also made locally in your choice of configuration and fabric.

Comfort and style come together in the practical design of the Aiko Sofa. It boasts generous proportions with unique sled legs to give the sofa a slight lift while keeping its form firmly grounded. The sofa is designed to sit with the wider Aiko custom-made furniture collection. 

Framed Chair

Framed Armchair

The Framed Armchair makes a statement with its striking silhouette and customisable upholstery. The frame is made with solid American white oak and finished with a clear matte lacquer.

Most of you will already know that I am drawn to objects with a mid-century or Scandinavian feel; this chair ticks both of these boxes with its square sides, natural oak frame and the sense of the seat floating within. It can look feminine with a lighter cloth and quite masculine with a darker fabric choice. This is a great chair for home or office.

The Framed armchair was designed by Dave Moreland Design and is licensed to Città.

Column Tables

Column Coffee Table and Column Side Table

The Column Coffee Table adds modern elegance to your living room. The design has a sculptural aesthetic with its round, two-tier form. The table is available in three colourways and also includes a Side Table option.

A table to be treasured for years to come, available in two sizes to suit your space and three finishes to suit your taste. I love how these look clustered together in pairs.

Walnut for a darker more masculine space, Black for an industrial look and natural Oak for those who love Scandinavian at heart.

Made with solid oak legs and finished with a clear matte lacquer. The tiered surfaces are made with clear toughened glass.

Once again designed in New Zealand by David Moreland and Nikolai Sorensen.

Città Cushions


The library of Città cushions is impressive, to say the least. If you are looking for a quick and inexpensive way to give your home a lift or a design edge, then you really must review the cushions at Città. It’s such a simple way to give a home a refresh.

I love the fresh and light Maggie cushion. And if you are looking for a timeless and textured addition to your sofa or bed, the Handwoven Walnut cushion is made with a beautiful heavyweight blend of linen and cotton and will do just the trick.

Città has its very own in-house textile design team run by Imogen Tunnicliffe and Sophie Clapson who are responsible for the gorgeous cushions and textiles you see throughout the collections.

Point lamps and lighting

Point Table Lamp and Point Floor Lamp

I was immediately drawn to the Point lamp. It feels to me like a future collector’s item to be treasured and passed down. It comes in a table lamp version, a floor lamp, and a pendant light that can be clustered. The Point Lamp’s are a result of a collaboration between product designer Alex Buckman and Città’s 3D design team, David Moreland and Nikolai Sorensen.

Storage Baskets

Traditional Wonkie Basket

Practical and good looking. What home doesn’t need attractive and functional storage solutions? There is a wide range of shapes on offer, smaller necks like the one I am holding to add natural texture or act as a vessel for dried foliage. And there are wider neck options for toys, towels, wood and all manner of household objects. 

Wonkie Baskets are handwoven in the Binga district of Zimbabwe using natural, locally harvested materials and traditional techniques. An attractive way to display precious items or keep clutter out of sight. 

Grove Marble

Grove Marble Dish

The Grove marble dishes are a personal favourite object. I will be adding several to my home and office. A cluster on the dining table, a solo one on an entranceway or a hall console table for car keys, and one or two on my work desk would be lovely too. The carefully considered Grove Tall Marble Dish features a refined, sculptural form that gives the illusion of lightness to its solid materiality. 

I am also keeping these top of mind for gifting too, especially with Father’s day just around the corner.

David Moreland and Nikolai Sorenson have designed the Grove marble pieces.

At their very foundation, Città believes that the things we surround ourselves with should give pleasure and have beauty beyond their function. A theory that is evident across their pieces. Everything feels very considered, timeless and quietly desirable. They have a recognised aesthetic, and they are exceptionally good at creating cohesive collections, not just in the season but from season to season. Making them an ideal place for newly wedded couples to start their interior journey.

The majority of Cittá pieces are designed in New Zealand. The brand has a talented in-house design department, and they also work with and promote New Zealand based partner designers.
