Portland Outside the Box

Pacific Northwest Campfire

Portland is a city of design and for design, unique in its approach to defining place, culture, and attitude. Forever pushing forward, our compact city continues to emerge as a dynamic center of creativity, composed of a vital community of designers and makers at its core. We create. We collaborate. We try new things. We grow.

To share the flavor of the Northwest, we invite you to hike into the woods with us. Spread out the quilt, itself a topography of Oregon’s farmland, and set out the wares and libations. Use the crate to start a campfire – we’ve even included a starter kit, to make it easy. Plug in your iPod and cue the playlist. Crack open some home brew, set out the charcuterie, and save the drinking chocolate for after dark.
