The Sebastian family expands

There is definitely a family resemblance between the Sebastian Bookcases and the Sebastian End Table, including racetrack-shaped legs, a light and open feel, and contrasting end grain plugs that provide a beautiful design feature. But in contrast to their cousin, the Sebastian Bookcases are made with thick solid wood shelves that provide a sense of heft and sturdiness. The shelves cantilever beyond the legs and are evenly spaced to keep the pieces visually clean and symmetrical.  They come in two standard sizes, providing versatility to accommodate any space. Come see the Sebastians at either our Woodstock or Yamhill showroom.

Dining Room of many colors

This holiday season we partnered with Colorhouse Paint to transform our Hayden dining table and chairs into three distinct holiday looks by changing up the color pallete thru the paint and table settings. With Colorhouse's direction and amazing paints our Hayden dining set transforms into the perfect gathering space in all three looks.

PASTEL PINK PALLET

Colorhouse Paint used their SPROUT .06 as the starting point for this amazing pink vignette and paired it with ceramics by Eutectic Gallery, Icon Ceramics and accessories from Crate and Barrel.

Introducing the Hayden Dining Collection

The design intent behind the Hayden Dining Table was to create a simplified trestle table with an overall clean and light form. Unlike normal kitchen duty, in table construction we kept things clean by removing the aprons.  We focusd on subtle details including exposed splines at the top and bottom of the legs, and a slight angle to the bottoms of the feet that keeps the table light and elevated.

Builder Feature: Meet Olivia

A graduate of Maine College of Art, where she studied woodworking and design, Olivia began her professional woodworking career on the East Coast. She honed her skills on several challenging projects, including building a house in Maine. On an island. In the winter. While living in Massachusetts.

We figured this was pretty good training for understanding how climate can affect wood furniture (among other things!), and were very excited when Olivia joined our team two years ago.

Celebrating with 350 (or so) of our closest friends

While we did our best to keep track of everyone who came out to celebrate with us, we lost track around 350 people, which seemed like a good official number to land on for our 35th anniversary. We were pleased to see so many friends, including past and present customers, employees and business partners.

We humbly thank you all for making it possible to reach this point, and look forward to another 35 years of creating handcrafted furniture that’s here for good.

Celebrating 35 years of handcrafted furniture

The Joinery is celebrating our 35th Anniversary!

“For 35 years, The Joinery has stood proudly for great design, incomparable craftsmanship, and doing the right thing,” said CEO Jon Blumenauer. While a lot has changed since Marc Gaudin founded The Joinery in 1982, Blumenauer, who took ownership in 2013, believes that “the common thread in our success for more than three decades is simple: hire people who care,” he said. “Of all that we have done over the years, I am most proud of the team we have built.”

A huge thanks to our customers, partners and employees past and present for helping us reach this milestone.
