Less than a month after launching its first upholstered bed line, direct-to-consumer home goods brand The Citizenry further expands its furniture and rug assortment with the new Portraits collection.
The line includes hand-knotted rugs, textured rugs made with 100 percent New Zealand wool, customizable upholstered beds and the brand’s first console, the Pendra, which is made with wicker wrapped around a steel frame. The Portraits collection also includes pillows, vases, bedding and wall art.
“With this new collection, our design team looked to gridded architecture, fluid forms and vintage pieces for inspiration,” says Carly Nance, co-founder, The Citizenry. “We design each of our collections to be timeless and pair with our existing styles. Each layer is an evolution of where we’ve been and where we plan to journey to.”
The Citizenry has rolled out several new lines over the past six months, including a fair trade rug line created by women weavers in Afghanistan through a partnership with The Afghanistan Project. The organization helps women in Afghanistan support themselves through carrying on time-honored weaving practices.
And last month, the company announced its collaboration with a manufacturing facility in North Carolina to make custom upholstered beds. The Portraits collection adds to that offering with additional made-to-order styles offering a range of fabrics, leathers and wood.
“For years, our customers have asked us to create furniture so they could bring the entire Citizenry look into their homes,” Nance said. “The Heirloom Bed Collection is our first collection of large, custom furniture and marks the beginning of a robust product pipeline that we’ll release throughout the year. These beds are the output of years of work and a significant step towards realizing our vision of becoming a whole-home brand and go-to destination for discerning, modern global citizens.”
