Black Rabbit is a Design Build firm located in beautiful Portland, Oregon. We began in the Spring of 2012 offering custom built furniture pieces, interior remodels and a variety of other interior design build services to the urban core of the city.
Black Rabbit has been established on four pillars that we hold fast and consider during every project.
Influence on Culture
Designers, builders and creators should acknowledge the incredible amount of responsibility that they hold. We have been entrusted with the persona and ethos of a person, home and a city. When historians look back to classify an era, it is not only monumental events that will be recorded but the heartbeat of a culture as defined and depicted by those of us in the world of design and craft. This is a privilege that should not be taken lightly.design build portland design build portland
Black Rabbit strives to help, not hinder. Our attempt to source all products from reclaimed or sustainable sources is as important as any other step in the design or building process. For more information on our ethics click here.design build portland design build portland
Quality product and pleasing aesthetic should be an accessible commodity for many. We believe in fair and honest prices that allow beautiful and quality product to be in homes not just of the elite but of the commoner as well.design build portland design build portland
Black Rabbit wants to be known for quality craftsmanship that remains true to traditional methods yet never fears an un-trodden pursuit. Our belief is that good and honest work produces outstanding product. Hard work ethic isn’t easy to come by in today’s world – Black Rabbit wants to change that.
Jason David Gillihan
Principle Design Builder, Black Rabbitdesign build portland design build portland
Jason began his love of raw aesthetic at a young age when his Grandfather introduced him to a hammer, a jar full of nails and a spruce stump. He developed his passion for woodworking along with his artistic vision through the design and construction of skateboard ramps and tree houses. Jason spent five years in San Francisco gaining cultural experience and his design perspective while living and crafting custom furniture in the Haight-Ashbury and SOMA neighborhoods. Jason and his wife Maijken have relocated back to Portland and live in a house on Bull Mountain.
