First up, rustic Ox will battle it out against eclectic Broder Nord!
Located in the Eliot neighborhood, the Argentinean-inspired NW fare is cooked on a wood-fired grill.
Stealable Idea #1: Vintage Refrigerator
Our favorite back-bar item is this vintage style refrigerator…
One of Arciform’s favorite retro refrigerators is Big Chill. Available in a number of sizes and colors.
Stealable Idea #2: Globe Pendant Light Fixture
Light fixtures can help to achieve the look and style you’re after which is why we love these sleek globe pendants.
Stealable Idea #3: Rustic Wide-Plank Floors
We love these wide-plank floors because they look like they’ve always been here and give the space a rustic vibe.
Pioneer Millwork here in Portland is a good option for your salvaged flooring needs.
Also in the Eliot neighborhood, this Swedish inspired spot is a popular brunch destination.
Stealable Idea #1: Concrete Floor
Concrete flooring is a great option for a heavy traffic area as it extremely durable while giving off an industrial yet modern vibe.
A polished, stained or painted concrete floor makes for easy maintenance and gives a modern feel to the space. Finishing products can be found through most large paint retailers.
Stealable Idea #2: Vintage Prep Cart
Here at Arciform, we LOVE salvaged materials which is why we like this vintage prep station.
Do you have a special vintage or salvaged piece that needs some updating? Versatile Wood Products‘ custom shop can fulfill just about all of your custom woodworking needs.
Stealable Idea #3: Brick-Set Ceramic Tile
A simple brick-set subway tile is classic yet sophisticated, always a great option for that timeless look.
There are so many options when it comes to tile, but one of our favorites is the Rittenhouse Square from Daltile.
