Fans of Italian-born Alessandra Branca’s warm European style (upholstered walls, mismatched patterns, lots of antiques and curiosities) will love the new location of the boutique Branca. There is, simply, much more Branca to love-and purchase, rather than merely be inspired by, as was largely the case at the limited-hours State Parkway location. Find more upholstered pieces and drapes; more tropical insects set into shadow boxes; more vintage hardware repurposed into art, and Branca’s own collection of textiles and lighting. The A-list clients have spoken, and their designer has delivered. 17 E. Pearson St., 312-787-1017.
