Whenever we’re in London, our first stop is Egg Trading, located in a small mews house on Kinnerton Street in Knightsbridge. Owned by Maureen Doherty, Egg sells simple and functional clothing, many pieces designed by Maureen herself (and worn by luminaries like Tilda Swinton, Diane Keaton, and Maggie Smith).
In an adjoining mews house, working with architect Jonathan Tuckey, Maureen has created a pied a terre for herself and an office. She’s featured ceramics and objects at Egg over the years (she was one of the first exhibitors of Edmund de Waal), and she recently expanded her home offerings in a new collection she calls Objects.
“Objects are part of daily life,” Maureen says. “If we love function and beauty, then this may be all we need.”
Here’s a look at her offerings, photographed in situ in her pied a terre.
