Marc was nominated for the award by Kristy Kilfoil, the mother of Mirabella, for whom we built the first bed. Check out the feature here.

The Joinery seems to be having a baby boom. First, just over a year ago, our finish team-lead Kelly and his wife Megan had a beautiful (and very tall) baby girl Lilly.  Apparently Lilly made parenthood look so tempting, 6 other Joinery employees decided to give it a try. Here’s Kelly, Megan and Lilly shopping for a Christmas tree:

We often get requests to help customers restore or repair a piece of furniture that means a great deal to them. We recently completed a project for a woman who wanted to rejuvenate the rocking chair she had used as a child.

We were able to piece the chair back together and restore it to its original (adorable) condition.

Portland is known for being both crafty and outdoorsy so it makes perfect sense that we would be home to one of the world’s most beloved utility tool makers. Founded in 1983, Leatherman manufactures its famous multi-tools, knives, lights and accessories right here in Portland.

Simple geometrics can be a great choice for upholstery, because while they add visual texture up close, from a distance and in the expanse of a room, they tend to blend together to create a united color scheme. Our Celilo Stool recently have come onto the showroom floor, rounding out the Celilo Dining Group. The spare, modern lines lend themselves to a spot of color to break up the graphic quality of the chair. For the stools we have on the floor, we chose a small Robert Allen pattern called Motivation, in Prussian. This fabric is available in 4 colorways, and has a delicate quality to it that make it ideal for upholstered pieces that don’t need bold statements, but where a little interest is desired.

Motivation might look fantastic paired with another highly textured piece, like the Soliloquy pattern Ondule. This unusual pattern brings thoughts of water, or sand dudes, and has such sophisticated and subtle feel to it. The patterns, while contrasting, work together to bring out their individual beauty.

How long have you been working with The Joinery?

Almost 6 years.
