Ita-Design: A Family Affair
BY KARA MANOS
Rouzita and Bita Vahhabaghai
Sisters first, entrepreneurs second: Bita and Rouzita Vahhabaghai are taking the local design scene by storm, dreaming up stylish and savvy ideas for homes, interiors, even fashion.
Graphic designer Bita and her sister, Rouzita, who has a background in architecture, are combining their talents on home-design projects with their company, Ita-Design, where they play off one another’s strengths (not to mention their names)—an obvious natural asset for the pair, who share a tight bond. “We’re really good at finishing each other’s ideas,” Rouzita says.
