Woonwinkel : independent design for modern living

Woonwinkel is a Portland, Oregon based shop owned by us-- two women with a passion for independent designers, simple forms, and gorgeous color. We carry home goods and gifts from all over the world, much of it created by individuals and itty bitty companies.

We like doing business with the little guys because it means we get to work with real people--people who are brave enough to take an idea and make it happen without a giant safety net. People who go the extra mile to make sure their product is well crafted. People who know that having fewer things that are better made is the way to go. 

We're in the shop often--come in to chat and you'll hear more about what led us here, what products we're excited about, and just what shade of pink or blue or green we think is trending at the moment. If you can't quite make it to Portland, feel free to drop us a line at anytime. 

By the way, woonwinkel means “living shop” in Dutch.
