The Citizenry Brings the Work of Artisans All Over the World Into Your Home


  by Kelly Anne Bonner It's easy to get stuck in a rut where you're exposed to the same shops that feature the same trends and the same brand-styles over and over. You become accustomed to them and grow fond of them because that's what you're used to. But there's no reason to immerse yourself in the same aesthetic over and over when there's so much out there to explore and bring into your home. Case in point—take the new online shop The Citizenry, a sustainable source of local goods from around the world. By partnering with artisans from every corner of the globe, the site makes it possible for you to buy the work of master craftsmen and women and bring a glittering array of local tradition and culture into your space. You don't have to settle for big brands to dictate the aesthetic in your home, as now it's possible to get that raw look and feel of a cultivated piece produced by hand directly in your living room. Currently serving up pieces from Argentina and Peru, the site plans to expand its horizons to many other countries. Buying wares from The Citizenry makes you feel like a true citizen of the world, as one click lets you participate in the vibrant, eclectic and global decor marketplace.

blankets and pillows

The blankets and pillows via Peru feature one-of-a-kind patterns in traditional styles. Having said that, they all complement each other quite nicely.

Via Argentina and Peru are patterned rugs, which err on the side of vibrant, colorful and graphic. They, like the blankets and pillows, all have a signature look—one that is not-your-usual in home decor.
