What: Jill Egan Interiors new showroom opening fête

Where: 2532 Amherst Street in Houston’s Rice Village

PC Moment:  When doors opened on the champagne-infused evening, a buzzy crowd of close to 100 poured in to get a look-see at the new Jill Egan Interiors digs that speak to Egan‘s ethos of clean, contemporary lines that exhibit a natural warmth while giving a nod to the classic. Not only does the showroom feature furnishings but also home goods with pieces by Studio Henry Wilson, handmade leather goods from Oscar Maschera, Bas Relief by Lauren Collin and ceramics from Jane D’Haene, just to name a few. Elevating the space with continuity are artworks from Matt Kleberg and Tyler Guinn.

The clutch of guests, which included design and art afficionados as well as influencers, were introduced to Jill Egan Interiors’ focus on amazing upholstery fabrics such as the highest quality wool bouclés, alpacas and mohair. For those perhaps intimidated by the plush fabrics, the shop also carries soft Belgian linen slipcovers that are conveniently dry clean friendly.

For those unfamiliar with Jill Egan, she taught math for a dozen years before pivoting to embrace her creative bent with interior design.

“The interesting commonalities of teaching mathematics and creating beautiful yet functional interiors are that they both require quite a bit of math and spatial geometry,”  Egan notes on her website. “The high point is that both professions allow me to impact people’s lives for the better.
