High-End Design Moves Outside the Loop Thanks to a Unique New Store and Two Stylish Women

BY // 09.14.16

Noting a lack of unique goods outside the loop, Katie Ingram and Shelley Kaplan are filling the void with a shop of their own. This month, they debut Birch Modern Mercantile, showcasing uncommon finds from De Petra jewelry, Garza Marfa handmade furniture, Houston-based Mirth caftans, Salemtown Board Co.’s vibrant skateboards, and more.

The area where Birch is located isn’t known as a mecca for design shops, thus the name, as the birch tree can sprout in almost any environment.
