Oregon White Oak

The Joinery is proud to announce a partnership with Zena Forest Products to source local Oregon White Oak. We strive to utilize lumber from local sources and that which is certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council. Through our partnership with Zena, we accomplish both.

Ben Deumling started Zena Forest Products in 2007 at age 25.  He wanted to find a better outlet for the logs from Zena Forest than the big industrial sawmills, where prices were low and good management practices were not appreciated or rewarded.   Zena Forest Products is now able to process logs onsite into finished flooring, furniture and cabinet stock, as well as a wide variety of other custom products.           

Portland Art Museum Rental Gallery Winter Picks

The Joinery's downtown Portland location is host to several new pieces of art from the Portland Art Museum. Portland is a mecca for art, design, fashion and the "maker" community. At The Joinery, we seek to build bridges to our community of creatives and we're proud to announce our continued collaboration with the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery. We feature local artists in our downtown showroom and change out the pieces each season.

The Joinery Story

 

From our beginnings in 1982, our history has shaped us, defined us and created opportunities for growth. Follow along on our journey.

 

Friends of Trees Neighborhood Planting January 16th

Since 1989, Friends of Trees has planted half a million trees throughout the Portland/Vancouver and Eugene/Springfield metro areas. Nearly every Saturday, Friends of Trees is out at one or more planting sites and they always need more help planting trees; no experience required. Simply show up, wear closed-toes shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Friends of Trees provides the breakfast, gloves, tools and expert guidance to have a great time. A potluck lunch is provided at the end of the planting. 

The Joinery has teamed up with Friends of Trees to sponsor a day of planting in SE Portland at the Creston/Kenilworth, Foster-Powell, Mt. Scott and Reed neighborhoods. We'll be taking The Joinery team of woodworkers to plant the raw materials we love for our furniture pieces. 

Join us Saturday, January 16th, 9am to 1pm.

Meet us at the Mt. Scott Learning Center, 6148 SE Holgate Blvd, Portland, OR 97206. The event will start right at 9am.

The World Forestry Center: Our new neck of the woods.

’Tis the season to settle into warm places and The Joinery is delighted to be spending some time in Portland’s World Forestry Center, adjacent to the Zoo and Children’s Museum.

Our furniture will be the featured exhibition in the WFC’s art gallery. We’re well-matched with this Oregon institution, not just because of the timber resources we use, but for how we use them. The WFC is similarly committed to sustainable forest management and environmentally responsible business practices. Visiting the Center is always rewarding — and now there’s never been a better time.

Join us on Wednesday, January 20, 2016, from 4-6pm, for an exhibition reception. The reception is open to the public, complimentary entrance to the Art Gallery.

One-Off Sale: Why not bring one home for the holidays?

Call them a cross between a white elephant and a giant panda: rare but lovable.

They’re our one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. Sometimes they’re design prototypes, or maybe orphans of a set, or just whims of our woodworkers. However they came to be, they’re all discounted for two days, Dec. 12 & 13, during The Joinery’s One-Off Sale.

These are sofas, tables, chairs, desks and more, in various woods and just a couple thing in common: they’re the first or last — or both — of their breed, and their sale price is as exceptional as their provenance.

2016 Color Trends Lookbook

Colorhouse paint released it's new 2016 Color Trends Lookbook featuring The Joinery's Whitman nightstand. Quiet colors that whisper welcome to the New Year.

MAUDE 

AIR .07 is a hue that sits between pink and purple, both colors that typically suggest youth and femininity. However, when a touch of grey fuses these two hues together, a sophisticated, androgynous color emerges. We are seeing a shift from hard lines to soft edges in our views on sexuality and gender. AIR .07 reflects this new openness through the embrace of a complex simplicity and a beauty in being.
