Stylish and affordable

Reflecting the grid patterns of the streets and subways of New York, it is all things geometric this season from Citta Design.

A new concept store for Citta Design opened at Arthur Barnett in Dunedin about a month ago and has quickly drawn a good response from the public. It has even generated considerable interest from interior designers.

"I think the appeal is that you can get affordable pieces that are designer pieces. They are what you see in the (design) books," says Donna Gibbons, the buyer for the Casual Living Area department at Arthur Barnett.

"Also, the textiles from Citta Design are designed in New Zealand and it's current, and it's definitely not dating."

Donna says the designs reach appeal to a broad market as the product was in the mid-range market in terms of affordability and style.

"It's not just designed for contemporary living but for all age groups whether people are downsizing and are just wanting cleaner lines."
