B o r n i n R o m e , d e s i g n e r Alessandra Branca takes an exuberant a p p r o a c h t o everything she does — from designing interiors for clients around the world to her vibrant home-furnishings collection, Casa Branca, with a boutique on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. Her fabrics, wallpapers, and furniture are now available in Texas, at James showroom in Dallas and Houston, with dedicated vignettes that include the brand's bench- made sofas and chairs. The fabrics range from screen-printed linens to Italian wovens, velvets, mohair, and performance fabrics, which are also available as wallpaper. Branca's newest textile collection, Into the Woods, features some of her favorite tartans, verdure, camouflage, and stripes recalling a mountain chalet, Highlands castle, or a cabin in the woods. Highlights: Audrey, an elaborate floral pattern, was inspired by a beloved antique textile in her personal collection. Cortina Tartan, a must-have for libraries, is woven in Scotland, and Verdure Camo is a hybrid blend of 16th-century tapestries and classic camouflage. Also in Dallas, The Conservatory on Two, Brian Bolke's new store in Highland Park Village which opened in February, hosts a Casa Branca pop-up February 4 through March 18. Look for marbleized pillar candles, ceramics by Parisian artist Jean Roger, Cestino porcelain dishes in a graphic basketweave pattern, and Otto tumblers hand-blown in a small French workshop.
