Have you heard of The Citizenry? We’re assuming yes… and not just because we’ve been singing their praises over the last year. The globally-inspired decor brand has taken the entire design world by storm, reviving the famed Argentine butterfly chair and adding their own modern twist to the iconic design. (Copper and white cowhide, anyone?!) They’ve curated a selection of gorgeous wares from Uganda and woven goods from Peru, and they’re just getting started. The founders, Carly Nance and Rachel Bentley, believe that “our homes should be reflections of the journeys we take,” which is how we knew we’d get along with The Citizenry just fine. We couldn’t agree more!
For their latest collection, the team traveled to Mexico – covering 1,500 miles and 8 cities. This was monumental for the duo, as the launch of the collection symbolized so much. It was the most they’ve traveled in one country. It includes the most artisans. And it all happened exactly one year after they brought their idea to life.
Of course, each piece they returned home with is the definition of stylish. The Mexico Collection boasts striking Acapulco chairs (the Aldama), rugs made by Zapotec weavers in Oaxaca, marble candleholders from Guadalajara, and hammocks from the Yucatan peninsula. It truly shows off the rich culture of the country. Over the next few weeks, they’ll be sharing a behind-the-scenes look on their blog. In the meantime, we wanted to show off of a few of our favorite pieces so you can get shopping. (And don’t worry when you add every last piece to your wish list. We did too.)
