Città has something for every room — and a snazzy new store

It’s Città, but now with more Città, thanks to a big new store filled with the best — and most — of this notable furniture and homeware brand. Just over the road from the New Zealand design company’s former Grey Lynn, Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland destination for furniture, lighting, textiles and accessories, the new flagship occupies a former postal depot with a footprint almost double
that of its predecessor.
Reimagined by concept and interior studio Wonder Group, the space is awash with natural light and has a domestic feel that puts you at ease. Generous configurations of current collections let you visualise how they’d look at your house (though you might pick up on how well suited Città’s chic pieces are to commercial fit-outs too).

THESE IMAGES Nordic and Japanese aesthetics influence the shapes, shades and natural materials used by Wonder Group, and cabinetry from Città’s Craft (top and middle) and Compound (above) ranges has been adapted to work in this setting. “In the kitchen area [top], we used Craft buffets side by side and above these installed a custom shelving unit designed with Buster Caldwell of Wonder Group,” says Dave. “Staining the shelves to match the cupboards created a cohesive display that works really well — so much so we’re actually looking at putting the floating shelves into production, so watch this space!”
“The intention was to create environments our customers could imagine being in their own homes,” says Città’s product designer, David Moreland. “Wonder Group curated a really beautiful, focused material and colour palette, which was implemented in all the dedicated displays. The inclusion of plastered and panelled walls, tiled plinths, stone counters, built-in cabinetry and floating shelves helps to enhance the customer experience.”
A wall of fabric swatches makes it simple to compare upholstery options, and there are spots in which to consult with staff on interior design ideas and ways to customise pieces for kitchen, living, bedroom, bathroom, anywhere and everywhere. Head on down to peruse the many, many possibilities. We’re sure you’ll agree it’s just grand.
