Heirloom Furniture from Egg Collective

Issue 30 · Summer in the City · July 23, 2012

Egg Collective consists of Crystal Ellis, Stephanie Beamer, and Hillary Petrie, three friends who met in college in St. Louis and have reunited in Brooklyn.

Post-grad, the trio went their separate ways, meeting over conference calls from their respective kitchen tables in New Orleans, Rhode Island, and New York City. In 2011, they moved to Brooklyn and established Egg Collective with a mission to create hand-building American furniture that merges heirloom-quality craftsmanship with contemporary design.

Ellis, Beamer, and Petrie build each piece from start to finish out of their Brooklyn studio, sourcing additional detailing from local and small-scale manufacturers. Beyond co-assembling the furniture, each designer brings her individual prowess to Egg Collective: Petrie manages operations and marketing, Ellis influences the overall aesthetic with her training in fine arts, and master finisher Beamer sands, stains, and lacquers each piece to perfection.
