This stunning new boutique—occupying an entire lane house with a spacious front garden in the French Concession on Changle Road—is home to a niche selection of avant-garde European designers. In the warmly lit, intimate gallery-like space, exclusive and sculptural pieces hang from walls upholstered in earthy-hued linen. Brands sold here include Rundholz (from Germany); Album di Famiglia, Lucio Vanotti, Alessandra Marchi and Masnada (from Italy); and Peachoo + Krejberg (from France). The highly curated atmosphere is offset by friendly and knowledgeable staff members, who encourage visitors to relax and slowly discover the designs over tea, coffee or wine.
