It’s been now almost 4 months since my trip to New Zealand and some of my souvenirs come only now into action. During my Auckland trip I went to one of New Zealand’s great interior brands, Citta Design, and I couldn’t help but shop and bring some souvenirs of Kiwi design to my own home. I bought a fun cushion cover and a lovely kitchen towel. Last weekend I was finally taking the two pieces out of my drawer and looking at the kitchen towel I was almost feeling pity for it to be destined to mundane kitchen chores like drying dishes. So I wanted another solution for it: Why not frame your beautiful design kitchen towels as a piece of art?
I simply exchanged my Manhattan map print with the lovely Madu kitchen towel from Citta Design. Paired with the Market Day cushion cover it makes for a fun and lovely addition to my living room – both from the colour and shape perspective. Nowadays there are so many beautifully designed kitchen towels and I am pretty sure that you have at least one at home. Why don’t you frame it too? I like how the textile structure in the frame adds an almost museum like vibe – it looks like those ancient textiles exposed in museums.
So in case you never heard of Citta Design, here are just a few of their lovely pieces from their home collection. I know New Zealand is really far away, but if you ever happen to go there, do not miss Citta Design in Auckland to bring back a piece of genuine Kiwi design to your home.
