Cities is a unique design and accessories store that houses creative lifestyle, luxury, and modern design products all under the same roof. Every addition to Cities’ collection is hand-picked and selected from various Middle Eastern and international design shows and exhibitions, rendering each displayed item precious and distinctive. Nevertheless, exhibitions are not the sole channel by which Cities selects its products and items. Many pieces are personally selected due to personal interest or appreciation, which further validates the eclecticism that is found within the store. This particular facet of the store sets Cities apart from design stores which harbor mass marketed objects, highlighting its carefully selected items and collections.
Cities opened its doors in 2006 in Riyadh with a vision to introduce contemporary design and art while setting up the trend to move beyond the classical movement which prevailed in Saudi Arabia. For that, the establishment of Cities is considered an important point in time which successfully contributed to changing the trend, by being one of the very first stores in Riyadh to offer such eclectic and exceptional design and art collections. Already established today as a recognized art and design spot, artisans and renowned designers from around the word choose Cities as an arena to display and share their genuine creations. Additionally, Cities pays special attention in supporting regional designers from the Middle East and the Gulf.
The main idea behind the store is very simple: allow the client to travel the world, all in one space. This concept is highlighted in the logo of Cities which depicts a stamp-like image of a bird in flight. To establish this goal, Cities’ showroom and displays are ever-changing throughout the year with the hope of offering each visitor the experience of getting to know the world through the store. For this reason, people from different ages and interests flock to Cities. Upon entering, visitors are engulfed into a realm of color and form, a fusion between traditional and modern.
Besides providing design products that range from toys and gadgets to fragrances, art, furniture and more, Cities offers a refreshing experience that makes a visit to the store an enjoyable and colorful experience.
For the artsy crowd that is searching for exquisite modern pieces, for the curious lay person who has an eye for beautiful and original items and for the kid who marvels at a colorfully designed toy or gadget, Cities’ products meets every interest. From big brands, such as Nada Debs, Karim Rashid, Bokja, Pinetti and many more, to more inspirational brands such as Villa Home, Images d’Orient among others, Cities delights both men and women, big and small. Rather than target a single category of visitors, Cities offers a distinctively exceptional platform that everyone can appreciate.
Cities main distinction is its ability to provide both affordable and luxury items. This well-designed range of prices allows for purchasing gifts, personal buys, and/or additions to your home décor and collections. This shows up as a significant asset to the store, as the variety in items and prices allows clients to select among various choices. Cities’ products encompass and surround the visitor from every shelf, corner, and display. The following are just a few of the products available:
1. Toys and gadgets in vibrant colors and forms, a unique addition for both children and adults.
2. Prints including photo albums, notepads, coffee cups, postcards, greeting cards and more.
3. Home Décor and objects ranging from accessories, coasters, vases, glasses and bowls, to furniture, mirrors, and cushions. Trays, picture frames, and candle holders are available as small additions to any home that requires a touch of design and refinement.
4. Fragrances in the form of scented candles, incense sticks, and soaps are found in different textures and packages guaranteed to add a rich aroma to any setting.
5. Lighting, in the form of decorative lanterns and lamps weaved in textile, metals, or glass.
Cities, as a concept and as a store itself, is considered to be involved as an educational tool to inspire people in the realm of art and design.
