Last fall, The Joinery went out on a limb and, well, branched out: We opened a second showroom, in downtown Portland at 922 SW Yamhill. When we decided this year to enter into a long-term lease to make this our flagship showroom, we committed to making it a very thoughtful representation of who we are and how we work.
The space was a total team effort. Our in-house Design team worked with Firm 151 and R&H Construction to create the floor plan and design elements, then we turned our team of skilled craftspeople loose. Every woodworker at The Joinery had a hand in building at least one permanent design element. From the custom whitewashed reclaimed fir and western walnut reception desk to the custom rift sawn white oak kitchen – our craftsmen displayed their talents and proudly left their mark.
The materials used in many architectural elements include 1890’s axe-cut fir beams salvaged from a barn in Aurora, OR, locally harvested Western Walnut from Goby Walnut, and locally harvested, FSC-certified Pacific albus.
Colorhouse paint provided the zero VOC wall paint, and Timber Pro the custom-formulated low VOC whitewash. Tufenkian carpets, French Quarter linens and Holly Mueller Home wall hangings lend softness and texture to the industrial space. Make your way back to the conference room for the show stopper: the Western Walnut live edge slab barn door will take your breath away, and features Krownlab barn door hardware.
Thank you to all our partners for their creativity, their energy and their inspiration to help make this space our new home. We’re delighted to be settled into downtown, in a district that’s become a focal point for artists and craftspeople. We’re proud to be a part of it, and invite you to drop in (we’re right on the MAX and Streetcar lines) and see the inspirational environment we’ve created for The Joinery’s hardwood furniture family.
