In my work as a Portland Interior Designer, shopping in the Pearl District is one of my favorite job duties. I specialize in modern interior design emphasizing warmth, comfort, and sustainable options in home decor. Portland's Pearl District is home to some great furniture and accessory stores and also wonderful art galleries showcasing both local and national artists.

Some of my clients choose to work with an interior designer so that they can gain the access I have to shopping at "To The Trade Only" stores. But I also have many clients who are trying to keep costs down by hiring me to help them develop a decorating plan and then doing the shopping themselves. Then they bring me back again to help them decide on the best pieces once they've seen what options are out there. So, I thought I would help you along by sharing my very favorite retail furniture, accessory and lighting stores in Portland's Pearl District.

When I first came to Portland, Oregon over 4 years ago to see if I would like to live here, I spent some time checking out the Pearl District Furniture Stores to see what was available. I immediately fell in love with PH Reed on the corner of NW 11th & Glisan. I was blown away by the great selection of contemporary furnishings, accessories and lighting. When I finally moved into Portland, I purchased my platform bed, dresser and nightstands here. To this day, it is still one of my favorite sources for interior design inspiration in the Pearl District. The store is laid out in room vignettes that are packed with great modern decorating ideas. One thing that I think is cool - but you would never know just by looking at the showroom - is that the store is divided into one half with more affordable brands and the other half with higher end brands like Dellarobbia. Since they have carefully curated their collection of beautifully designed furniture lines, you would think it was all high-end. But don't let the high class look keep you standing on the sidewalk. Go on in. You'll find great design to be more affordable than you might have expected.

If you are looking for sustainably made furniture in the Pearl District, be sure to look at PH Reed's Creative Elegance Furniture - a member of the Sustainable Furniture Council. The environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and fresh, contemporary designs are a winning combination.

I help busy professionals create comfortable and contemporary spaces so they can relax and enjoy their homes. If you would like help coming up with a decorating plan and help in making your selections so that the end result is a space that looks fabulous, call me today to schedule a consultation! 503.816.4394

Living and working just off Vaughn Street in Portland, you are so right about all the great shops in the Pearl even all the way up to 23rd Ave. I just hope they get the construction done soon before I go crazy and some of these shops are forced to close because their customers are having a hard time getting to them.

Michele - You'll just have to come to town and visit!

Connie - You said it! Driving around the Pearl District and finding parking can be a real challenge. I guess that's why living there would be great -- then you can just walk.
