The Mrs. Makes Her Mark
In 1965, a vacation to visit a distant Canadian relative’s department store lit the elegant spark that the Pacific Northwest had been waiting for, and Eleanor Chown was just the modern woman to transform the dream into reality. After a decade of traveling the world with Frank by her side, Eleanor sought out the finest offerings in antique furniture and home décor to bring home to Oregon. Her vision surpassed expectation and pioneered a Chown legacy of her own, bringing a wealth of new opportunities for another generation. Today, Eleanor’s taste for bold design and attention to detail, supported by a husband’s trust in her talent, has innovated an industry and is synonymous with the reputation of Chown.
