The Joinery creates beautiful, quality wood furniture of modern and classic design. We regularly partner with architects and interior designers to create furniture for commercial and residential settings using traditional joinery techniques and timeless design. As a values driven business, our impact on the environment and contribution to the community are key considerations throughout our process of design, material sourcing, and daily business practices.
The Windward is a luxury apartment development in Lake Oswego, OR. ZGF Architects brought The Joinery in to help outfit the common areas of the three-building complex. We built over two dozen pieces, including both standard and custom designs.
When Dr. Martens began planning the remodel of their U.S. Headquarters in Portland, they wanted a statement piece that would invigorate their workforce while reflecting the iconic brand’s image. The result we created in collaboration with Trade Interior Designs was a custom sit-to-stand desk for 93 work stations, featuring bases from Fully, a fellow Portland B Corp. The desktops were stained black and included a custom metal back panel to allow privacy as well as the use of magnets to customize each workspace. We selected Red Oak for the desktops, which allowed the beautiful grain to show through.

When Stoel Rives, Oregon’s largest law firm, moved its corporate headquarters to a new building on downtown Portland, it selected The Joinery to build its conference tables in recognition of both our ability to handle the large scope of the project, and our alignment with Stoel’s company values. In collaboration with ZGF Architects, The Joinery designed fifteen custom conference tables with metal bases to fit out all the conference rooms on two floors of the office space.
Material selection was also important to the Stoel leadership team, and Oregon White Oak was chosen in recognition of the company’s Oregon roots. Eventually, we landed on an origami-inspired design for the metal bases on the larger tables.
Open chases in the metal bases allow concealed wiring to run from floor outlets up through to the metal aprons, providing power and USB access to individual users. The largest tables also included pop-up microphones.
