When buying our home, we did a very careful assessment of Portland's neighborhoods, growth and development. And just five years ago, we knew that SE Division -- even above 39th -- was well on its way to being a hot spot. These days, the street is known for putting forth great breakfast (think Detour, Petite Provence and Genie's) and top-notch shopping for home and beyond.
Oregon Home traveled up and down Division to pick out the very best, including these favorites for furniture, housewares and decorative accessories:
TROPICAL SALVAGE: Formerly entombed wood gets new life as fine furniture. (2455 SE 11th)
FLEUR DE LIS: Art and home accessories artfully arranged in this floral studio. (3588 SE Division)
PORTICO: Sturdy furniture from reclaimed materials will catch homeowners' eco-friendly eyes. (3630 SE Division)
OLD PORTLAND HARDWARE & ARCHITECTURAL: Architectural salvage—think mantels, lights, doorknobs and windows—will jazz old-house lovers on the hunt. (4035 SE Division)
EASE: Good art from emerging artists, funky art furniture and quirky home accessories and jewelry make for a way fun mix. (4823 SE Division)
