The Portland-based husband and wife team of James and Kricken Yaker who are Vanillawood, just opened a 900-square-foot showroom/store in Portland’s Pearl District. Vanillawood’s full-service design/build business has recently expanded to also offer an inventory of fabrics, wallpaper, lighting, mirrors, rugs, tabletop and gift items plus custom upholstery, furniture and built-in cabinetry.

Environmental concerns in the space include the desks and model kitchen with custom built-ins are constructed from reclaimed wood with recycled content countertops, as well as all-natural stain on the hardwood floors and no VOC paints.

I’m loving that pair of chairs! It seems like a pretty sweet space to work in — stop by if you’re in the area!
