You know that moment when you feel like you've found your people? They share the same love languages, the same aesthetic, they're passionate about the same things you are, and when you look at what they are all about you keep saying "Me too!" Yeah. That.
The folks at The Citizenry are my people.
A brilliant marriage of beautiful design and compassionate purpose, with The Citizenry's collection, neither is compromised. Each makes the other more beautiful. And together, they leave you utterly inspired. That's why I am beyond excited to feature them as a part of my Gift Guides for a Compassionate Christmas.
By personally traveling to each artisan country and using only local materials, the team at The Citizenry has created sustainable relationships with their artisans. And by selling directly online, they're able to offer handmade goods - crafted with the highest quality materials - at more reasonable prices than traditional luxury boutiques.
I love the philosophy behind their name: THE CITIZENRY.
"We set out to build a company that celebrates the people behind our products. Our name is a reflection of the collective of individuals – artisans, designers, and dreamers – who rally together across cultures and continents to craft our collections. The Citizenry is our way of sharing these stories and products with you."
The designs are so beautiful that you'd love them without that backstory, but knowing the beautiful process behind the products makes them the kind of treasures you can happily share stories about at dinner parties for, like, ever.
As a designer, I'm in love with the entire collection. The modern aesthetic and their use of wood alone had me at hello. And that butterfly chair with the copper frame? Come. On. Needless to say, you will not go wrong in choosing a gift for the design lover in your life from their collection.
To sweeten the deal, they've offered a couple of lovely little perks for my readers:
1) They always offer free shipping within the continental US, but they have happily offered a code for free international shipping on all orders (including rugs and chairs!!) for my fellow Canadians. Use code: FIRSTCLASSTICKET
2) Free gift wrapping on an unlimited number of items. Click here to add gift wrapping, and then use code WRAPPEDWITHLOVE at checkout and the $5/package gift wrapping costs will be removed! Easy peasy and delivered right to your door with the proverbial bow on top.
I hope this makes giving gifts with heart a little easier for you this year! I truly believe the most beautiful gifts are ones that don't compromise on either the process or the product.
