If only we had as much diversity in our furniture choices as we have in tile here in Portland. Craftsman homes visit their beloved Pratt and Larson, and we are lucky enough to have Ann Sachs in the Pearl which features some local artisans tile work.
However, if you are even thinking of going with a modern or minimalist look for your home, Pental's showroom on Yeon is the destination. Modern mosaics that mimic vintage wallpaper, glass rectangles, river stones, and stainless steel have unlimited potential for combining a personal look. Organic shapes and patterns offer softness to what often becomes a bare and cold feel. The staff is helpful and warm as well. More photos.
