Falling into fabulous


Show offs

Design challenge: Think outside the box; stay inside the lines. Serving Up Style participants transform a designated space at a home show into a dramatic dining environment. It’s a chance for design teams to showcase their best work, and for the rest of us to gawk and dream. Part of the Portland Fall Home and Garden Show, Sept. 29-Oct. 2, Portland Expo Center; 2060 N. Marine Dr., Portland. V.M. $10; otshows.com, servingupstyle.org


In with indigenous

Specializing in Native American and Indigenous arts since 1972, Quintana     Galleries is the longest-running gallery in Portland. Owner Cecily Quintana has masterfully continued to shape Quintana into a Native American cultural center unlike anywhere else in the nation. It features high-end pottery, jewelry, antiques, and works from acclaimed new artists. Visit the gallery to view pieces by highly trained artists alongside items from self-taught makers. While you're there, pick up a Navajo rug or Coast Indian mask to add a truly Pacific Northwest flair to your décor. E.H. 124 NW Ninth Avenue; quintanagalleries.com

Industrial illumination

Vastly different from the traditional reproductions for which they are known, local lighting favorite Schoolhouse Electric introduced their first line of modern table lamps. The new lamps run the gamut from retro to industrial, with cords incorporated into the design instead of hidden away. We think they’d be perfect for adding a touch of Art Deco to a study. E.H. $85-$249; Schoolhouse Electric; schoolhouseelectric.com


Exotic wood

Made entirely of South American Bloodwood, an exotic hardwood with a beautiful deep red color, the Contemporary Art Table by Fine Art Furniture in Ashland makes a dramatic statement. Artist Julian Hamer's furniture is made to order, with clean lines and perfect proportions to complement the natural beauty of the wood grain. E.H. $12,000; Fine Art Furniture; fineartfurniture.com



Dishy flatware

The organic shape of stainless steel knives, forks and spoons by Japanese designer Sori Yanagi is simple yet elegant. Food will taste the same. But it might look better. V.M. $62 for five-piece setting at Canoe in Portland; canoeonline.net


Beastly flights of fancy

Portland artist Ryan Berkley is inspired by comics, something obvious in his Berkley Illustration prints featuring animals dressed in regal clothing, such as a cheetah with an eye patch or a turtle with a fez and bowtie. They would look equally perfect matted simply in a child’s room or in gilded oval frames in a dining room. We’re tempted to collect an entire menagerie. E.H. $10 for 5x7 or $18 for 8x10; Berkley Illustration; etsy.com/shop/berkleyillustration

Churchkey ceramics

Eugene sculptor Ken Standhardt’s ceramic vessels look like intricate woven baskets made of clay. He achieves this look by hand-tooling each piece with an old-fashioned bottle opener to create the unique repetitive patterns. Each vessel is lovingly marked with between 500 and 5,000 indentations. E.H. $40-$1,000; standhardtstudio.com



Stove-top dressing

Something’s cooking in the kitchen. The Italian-based Bertazzoni stove company, almost 130 years old, is still a smoking hot innovator. The latest? A cooktop that is both electric and gas powered. The chic, sleek, 36-inch Design Series cooktop incorporates two electric induction zones, one gas burner and a griddle for chefs who like a little of this, and a little of that. Buona idea! V.M. $2,699 available at several Oregon dealers; bertazzoni.com


Home store

Portland’s newest home shop Woonwinkel (Dutch for “home store”) was recently opened downtown in the Pittock Building by Erica Essink and Kristin Van Buskirk. Their support of local independent design and appreciation of a “new modern” aesthetic is refreshing. E.H. 935 SW Washington, Portland; woonwinkelhome.com

Hanger holder

Artists Greg and Grey were building a cabin in Northern Minnesota when they decided they wanted antler hooks to hang their heavy coats on. Out of that idea Antler & Co. was born, so now you too can have your own bookshelf, hanger or mobile made of shed deer antlers. No cabin required. E.H. $50-$130; Antler & Co.; antlerandco.com



Eco glass tiles

Ashland-based Hakatai Enterprises distributes glass tile with an emphasis on environmental conservation and sustainability. Their Ashland-e series are alluring iridescent glass tiles made from recycled bottles and other waste glass. The eco-friendly company even purchases carbon offsets to counteract their shipping footprint. E.H. Prices vary; Hakatai Enterprises; hakatai.com


Tea for bee

Drying dishes just got prettier. Portland-based Rebecca Pearcy, the woman behind Queen Bee bags, enters the domestic goods market with pillows, shopping toTes and tea towels in original silk-screen fabrics. Queen Bee Studio, 3961 N. Williams, Portland. V.M. $22-$48; queenbee-creations.com

Beauty and the bugs

Insects give most people the heebie-jeebies. Christopher Marley had a similar reaction until he looked at them from a design perspective to see these creepy crawlers as elegant, even beautiful. The Salem artist creates elaborate mosaics of bugs and works similar magic with botanicals, minerals and sea life (prices from $20-$7,400). More affordable are signed prints and licensed products that include books, puzzles, note cards, children’s games and coloring books ($20 and under) based on the mosaic creations. At the Pheromone Gallery, 255 Liberty Street NE, Salem. V.M. Prices vary; pheromonegallery.com



Candy-colored containers

Glassworker Lynn Read runs a small shop in Sellwood with a focus on unique handmade glass pieces. Read combines materials sourced as locally as Portland and as far away as Germany and Italy to make his brightly colored glassware with soothing organic shapes, inspired by Venetian glass blowing styles. E.H. Vitreluxe Glassworks; vitreluxe.com


Hide and chic

Electrical outlets mar perfectly glamorous backsplashes and walls. Touch panels from TRUFIG puts technology in its place — the background. The flush-mounted control panels can be finished to blend with walls. Pretty has its price. V.M. $300 starting, at Mari Design; Maridesign.com

House in a pocket

Remodeling projects can be overwhelming. Who made that sink, how much did it cost, and how can you get your hands on it now that you need it? Remodelista.com has a helpful app that lets you search through thousands of their handpicked products to create personal folders for saving your design inspirations. So, now you can carry everything and the kitchen sink in your bag or pocket. V.M. $2.99; remodelista.com



Plant pouch

As summer turns to autumn, these saddle bag planters by Portland-based Root Pouch will help you transition your garden from outdoor to indoor. The earth-friendly garden bags made of a recycled plastic flexible geotextile can hang over a fence or railing, giving you a vertical garden in a small amount of space. E.H. Prices vary; Root Pouch; rootpouch.com


Beautiful dreamers

Head in the clouds or feet on the ground? The NW Natural Street of Dreams has both. The five homes, priced from $700,000 to $900,000, are Earth Advantage Certified. That makes the Aug. 6-28 showcase both fancy and earthy. V.M. $12; streetofdreamspdx.com


Here's the buzz

An Oregon beekeepers' standby for 114 years, Ruhl Bee Supply is enjoying the current urban homesteading trend that is picking up steam, especially in the Pacific Northwest. If you already have a garden and perhaps some backyard chickens, a beehive is the next step. Ruhl Bee Supply sells beekeeping products including the beautiful English Garden First Year Kit. E.H. 17845 SE 82nd Dr., Gladstone; ruhlbeesupply.com
