MadeHere, a retailer of locally made goods, recently added a location that sells furniture.

#2 Kuhnhausen’s Furniture

A family-owned company, Kuhnhausen’s has been operating since 1919. The store at 2640 E. Burnside St. carries traditional, modern, and casual furnishings, including lamps and pieces for the home office. Kuhnhausen’s emphasizes buying locally and offers furniture made by Biltwell Furniture in Portland and Whittier Wood Furniture in Eugene, Oregon.


#3 Perch Furniture

This family-owned furniture showroom at 923 NW 10th Ave. features custom, hand-built sofas, sectionals, chairs, and other cushioned seating. A custom furniture design studio, Perch Furniture works with the customer to design each piece, which is then made by family-owned manufacturers in Los Angeles.

This locally owned business, with locations at 217 SE Taylor St. and 825 NW Davis St., sells both vintage finds and new furniture and home décor that’s inspired by midcentury modern design.

Another family-owned business, What’s New? Furniture, at 439 SE Grand Ave., sells both locally manufactured sofas and unique consigned pieces, with an emphasis on midcentury furniture and décor, antiques, contemporary and modern designs, and local artwork. What’s New’s sofas are made in Woodburn, Oregon, by Dan Frederick Furniture. What's New? also features pieces from local artists

#7 Rejuvenation

This “lighting and house parts general store” had its roots as an architectural salvage shop in Portland but now has high-end stores across the country. Rejuvenation still makes most of its extensive selection of reproduction light fixtures at its Portland facility, and the store at 1100 SE Grand Ave. also carries furniture for every room. The furniture is heirloom-quality, and the vintage pieces Rejuvenation carries are high-end.
