Mark you calendars, it's time for Pecha Kucha!

 

Pecha Kucha is a gathering of  artists, designers, architects and all their brethren to meet and "chit chat" (the translation of Pecha Kucha from Japanese). Pecha Kucha was started in 2003 in Tokyo as a way for a community to meet and show their work. The evening rests on a simple presentation format, 20 slides x 20 seconds apiece.

Today's fabric picks come from the Robert Allen Bluebell Color Library book, and are just two patterns that have a certain amount of pop that is keeping us going in as we descend into the darker fall months. There is something just sort of free and easy about these two, a little bit island, a little bit sophisticated.

This year’s Serving Up Style event ran from Sept 30th to Oct 3rd, and it was a great success! Serving Up Style is an event hosted by the Portland Home and Garden Show, to raise awareness for lupus, and supports Molly's Fund. We had so much fun working with Nicole of Nicole Helene Designs to put together a stylish and fresh take on a dining staged set-up. We are proud to announce that we took home the People’s Choice Award! There were so many great entries in this year’s competition, many congratulations to all the winners and to all the competitors.

Here are some shots of our vignette. It included our Live Edge Dining Table, our Fir Beam End Table, our Century End Table, and our Roswell Round End Tables.

If you haven't had the chance to run across the stunning photo series by Tadd Myers called American Craftsman Project, you should stop what you are doing and head over to the site for a treat. Inspired by his craftsman father, Tadd has traveled across the country to document craftsmen and women working in their trade. There is much of the values of The Joinery reflected in the images and words of the kindred spirits featured in the project.

We are excited to once again be featuring an awesome Renovo bike in our showroom. Renovo is a forward thinking Portland company that specializing in something seemingly impossible, hardwood bikes! You may have seen this company and their excellent products featured on blogs and in design magazines around the web and in print, they certainly have been getting attention for some time now.  We have designed a bike stand to go with the bike, and we currently are displaying the Renovo R4 Pursuit. Come by the showroom and prepared to be awed by it's beauty and surprising lightness.

The Joinery is proud to be partnering with Nicole Helene Designs for the fantastic event Serving Up Style at the Portland Fall Home and Garden show this coming week. The event supports Molly’s Fund, an organization dedicated to fighting Lupus. The Gala Event, held on October 2nd, includes an awards ceremony plus auction and dinner. We are looking forward to posting about the event, and showing off some great photos next week!

Until then, here are some photos of our booth in progress (and a couple of our guys clowning around at the install). Hope we see you there!
