In recent months, the fave shopping destination has welcomed West Elm, CB2 and Cru Home. Egan's space is a nice addition to the bunch, with a more spacious, gallery-like feel. The former elementary-school math teacher decided to pursue her passion of design full-time more than a decade ago, and has spent years cultivating relationships with upholsterers, antique dealers and other industry experts, all of which lend a unique aesthetic to both her showroom and her projects.
Favorite finds at Jill Egan Interiors include pieces by Parisian artist Lauren Collin, bronze sculptures by Studio Henry Wilson, and exclusive textiles imported from Argentina. Shoppers can also admire the work of Houston's Doro Rojas, who created a reclaimed-wood table for the space, and Tony Robles of Iron Accents, which created lots of the custom displays.
Most recently, Egan and her junior designer Katharine Powell have pursued lots of large-scale, new-construction projects, which benefit from the firm's tech-savvy practices: Photo-realistic rendering and VR presentations allow clients to gain a unique perspective of their new environments.
“I am a big believer that creating beautiful spaces for others has a positive impact on their well-being," said Egan in a statement. "My wish is for this space to have that same impact on everyone that walks through our doors.”
