Frances May is one of Portland’s most dependable stores for men’s and women’s clothing and handmade accessories. The store is curated with a sharp focus on authentic labels whose standard is style, quality and longevity.

Al James, contributing writer for the blog A Continuous Lean, had this to say about the store’s collection: 

“The unifying theme being that each piece is extremely well made, wearable day in and day out and effortlessly timeless. These are the pieces that you wear for years, not just a season or a few months.”

We are pleased to find that Niche also fits into this theme. Our focus has always been on creating a collection of high quality products that are both modern and timeless and our integrity is steeped in creating our products by hand in our factory in Upstate New York.

At Frances May, nestled above the racks of Rachel Comey, Acne and Rick Owens you will find a lovely grouping of Niche Pendants. The mix of Stargazer and Solitaire Pendants in amber, smoke and plum add a playful touch to the high ceilings and compliment the minimalist aesthetic of the store.

An Artist’s Space: The Upstate, NY studio of Emil Alzamora

New York-based artist, Emil Alzamora was recently featured on the website curiator.com.  His work, which is mostly sculptural is both figurative and surreal and balances recognizable humanistic forms with impossible exaggeration. Process is a great consideration for Emil and each of his sculptures is informed by the material it embodies. The style of his sophisticated Upstate, NY home and studio is defined in the similar fashion, with a carefully curated attention to material.

 

We love the airy feel to the open floor plan and the the elegant mix of stamen and pod pendants reflecting each other through the dinning area to the kitchen. Neutral color choices in clear and smoke accent the the artists’ rich collection of sculptural wall pieces.

“The more you know about materials, the more doors open up in your own work.” – Emil Alzamora
