The latest addition to Portland's burgeoning design scene is Woonwinkel (a Dutch word that translates to home shop). Owners Kristin Van Buskirk and Erica Essink have put together pieces from innovative European designers (Studio Atelier NL, Jens Fager, and Hella Jongerius) with some of the best from the Pacific Northwest, including Iacoli & McAllister, Studio Gorm, Vontundra, and Esque. For more information, go to Woonwinkel.
