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.

We are Colorhouse

Sasquatch Spotted At The Joinery

Sasquatch was recently spotted downtown Portland and he stopped in at The Joinery to do a little holiday shopping for the Yeti's on his list. We didn't have a bed his size, but CEO Jon Blumenauer made sure to measure so we could build him one just the right length.

The Joinery Launches Holiday Gifts Made From Upcycled Lumber

Small pieces of perfection from our master woodworkers

The Joinery has designed a collection of small, handcrafted gifts for the holiday season. Traditionally known for dining tables and bedroom sets, The Joinery is featuring solid wood bud vases, woven trivets, floating knife racks and live-edge wine racks handmade in Portland by its master woodworkers.

Adhering to the company’s sustainability mission of recycling 100% of its wood waste, owner and CEO Jon Blumenauer challenged the team to creatively build small gift items out of the “off-fall” – or leftover scrap wood – from the manufacturing facility’s larger furniture pieces.
