Chown Hardware continues to show itself as a leader in providing luxury kitchen and bath fixtures as well as lighting for sophisticated clients throughout the Pacific Northwest. 

This recent article in Gray Magazine highlighted the company’s strength in combining innovation with tradition, in not only the products it sells, but also in the way the fifth generation of the Chown family approaches marketing, and above all, customer service. 

Chown has been a family-owned business and hardware icon in Portland for over 140 years and has also expanded to Seattle and Bellevue, Washington. Through the years, this family has strived to bring customers the best in high-end cabinet hardware, plumbing, and lighting from top manufacturers, while also providing an unprecedented shopping experience through its specially designed showrooms that are more of a gallery than a store. 

Chown also entrenches itself in the communities it serves by supporting local charitiesan act written into its company missionand hosting community activities in The Eleanor event space (named for Eleanor Chown) in Portland. 

Family, community, and top of the line products prove to be the perfect combination to guide Chown’s success.
