Happy Sunday, folks. I know it is a bit out of the regular to be posting over the weekend, but we are feeling very “extra” right now. I’m in the decorating phase of the mountain house (will be doing SO much over the break) and I had pinned a ton from The Citizenry, a company we love. They reached out to partner on a post, I said, “perfect timing,” and because I love their general sustainable ethos (as well as design), we jumped at the chance to team up.
We here at EHD love to showcase those products and companies that give back, are ethically made, support the artisans and craftspeople that make their products or contribute in some other way.
The Citizenry, who we have showcased on the blog before (click the link below each photo to see the full reveals), is one of the brands that we love and support for this very reason. They’ve created a sustainable company and give back to the countries and people that produce the products. They personally travel to each country and use only materials found locally. From there, they sell directly to you online–there is no middleman. This is how they’re able to offer handmade goods, crafted with the highest quality materials, at more reasonable prices than traditional luxury boutiques. We’ve used their products in so many makeovers and projects (including the upcoming Flash Makeover, which we cannot wait to reveal this week!!) and I wanted to highlight not only some of my favorites from their collection this holiday season but more so highlight them as a brand.
If you aren’t already familiar with the company, The Citizenry is a socially conscious decor brand that prides itself in working with local artisans and communities around the world to handcraft capsule collections featuring a variety of products from a specific region. With fair trade practices, sustainable products and giving back 10% of proceeds to the community in which the designs were created, they have not only a business model but a selection of products that we can stand behind and support.
They’ve introduced SO many products since we last showcased them in Brady’s living room makeover, so I thought it would be fun to do a little bit of pinning to create my ULTIMATE wish list of products that I want to use in the mountain house. As you probably know (and you’ll know more tomorrow because we’re posting an update on the blog), we are days, hours, minutes from finishing up that house and now comes the fun part of selecting the furniture, accessories, decor and art that will go in it. So, if I had an unlimited credit at The Citizenry to shop my little mountain-house-heart out with, here is what would be in my cart.
1. Puebla Marble Candle Holders (Set of 2) | 2. Puebla Marble Tray | 3. Patronato Circle Mirror Set | 4. Kambas Ladder | 5. Milagro Pillow | 6. El Mar Throw | 7. San Rafael Safari Chair | 8. Meru Counter Stool | 9. The Rowan Apron | 10. San Pedro Area Rug | 11. Halston Pitcher | 12. San Rafael Safari Stool | 13. Halston Mugs | 14. Kulon Side Table | 15. Onam Napkins (Set of 6) | 16. Puebla Marble Serving Board | 17. Halston Bowls | 18. La Nieve Pillow | 19. La Duna Pillow | 20. Cascada Throw | 21. Puebla Marble Half-moon Bookend | 22. Savu Chair | 23. Mercado Storage Basket | 24. Raid Leather Floor Pillow | 25. Hawa Lumbar Pillow
You get the vibe. It’s a lot of simple but special pieces full of wood, pottery, textiles, leather and more natural material. That blanket ladder is so beautiful. The counter stools are PERFECT for the black kitchen island. The San Rafael Safari chair would be the perfect accent chair in any room. The dining chairs are beautiful (just add a cushion, right?), I have a lot of the mugs already and I love them, and their oversized storage baskets would be so perfect for the kids playroom area.
Thanks to The Citizenry for being an example of a boutique company spreading good, using sustainable materials and inspiring a good company ethos. Now please send me my wish list (which is not part of this partnership but it’s always important to just ask for what you want in life). And if you want to shop the wishlist for yourself, you can click through to this link which has it all on one page for your buying pleasure.
