Italia in Chicago

    Maxalto, an Italian furniture collection, has opened its first U.S. boutique in the heart of Chicago’s gallery district. Established more than 30 years ago, Maxalto is the more classic division of the design company B&B Italia, which is recognized for its chic, modern line of furniture. Under the design direction of Antonio Citterio, Maxalto is known for traditional techniques formerly used in cabinet and lute-making to create its walnut and rosewood furniture. The collection, which is also sold in its Paris shop, ranges in price from about $2,350 for a small table to $9,400 for a sofa. (www.bebitalia.it)
