Kinfolk Magazine recently moved into new studio + office space in Portland, Oregon. The newly-combined space formerly housed a production company and a sales office and after a fresh paint job, west elm was pleased to be included in the Kinfolk aesthetic!
This is our main office, the hub. Our core team of 10 works, coordinates, laughs, eats and creates from here. The sitting area with the couch Bliss Sofa + Bliss Chair-and-a-half is where we have our meetings. We use the long tables and open area for brainstorming sessions, shared meals and workshops. It’s a multi-purpose area.
Kinfolk coordinates with contributors all over the world to put together the magazine. On staff, we have a team of 10 in Portland. Andrew and Carissa Gallo from SeaChant.Co have a corner setup in the office as well. They’ve made a lot of films for Kinfolk — and Carissa took these pictures!
Our team shares the responsibility of all of the care for our office. As you can tell, the office is very white, open and minimal. This aesthetic is similar to what you see in the magazine. We like having the open communal feel, and not being constricted by choppy walls or by busy designs. The furniture is very clean and utilitarian, complementing the overall feel well. We loved the straight and geometric shapes, and the modern air it brought to the space.
Kinfolk hosted a 40-person meal celebrating the cookbook launch in the new space in October! The locals who were in the book, as well as our families and friends attended.
Thanks for sharing!
