A century ago, Seattle’s original Auto Row was home to chandeliered showrooms, which became all but forgotten after car dealers moved to the suburbs. By the post-World War II era, grand buildings on parallel Pike and Pine Streets stood empty. Low rents eventually attracted artists and musicians to the area, and the ’90s grunge scene spawned bars and music venues. In the last decade, preservation-minded developers transformed many of those automotive buildings into offices, apartments and shops, restoring original windows, old-growth beams and wood floors. Today the Pike-Pine Corridor is the epicenter of the popular Capitol Hill neighborhood, claiming some of the best restaurants, nightclubs and vinyl record stores in the city.

Over the past decade, the Pacific Northwest has built a food and style movement all its own. And while the bike riding, espresso guzzling, and jam making may dip into hipster ridiculousness at times (see Portlandia), the region's restaurants, artisanal producers, and woodsy aesthetic influence how the rest of us eat, drink, and live. Here's how to bring their world to yours.

The challenge is on: buy American Made for the holidays and ABC News went straight to the source of American sourced and made holiday gifts for this powerful segment on U.S. jobs and meaningful holiday gifting. We think our founder Ruth sums it up quite well!
Owned by one of Seattle’s biggest art patrons, Ruth True, NuBe carries home and fashion goods, many crafted in the city. Everything has an eco-friendly slant. Look for richly re-upholstered mid-century pieces by Blanket and NuBe Home, playful silk scarf dresses by Christine Chaney Creative, and wood-and-steel dining table sets by Chadhaus.

Adrienne Antonson, an artist of many mediums, found the inspiration for her clothing line, State, in the midst of alpacas. As a student at the College of Charleston she studied sculpting before landing a gig as the curator of the esteemed Charleston gallery, Eye Level Art. After just one year, she needed a change.

Whenever we watch TV at home, my feet are always freezing. I always stretch out on the sofa and want a blanket to cuddle up in. So! I went on a hunt. Pendleton blankets look great but can feel a little scratchy, and I was looking for something super soft. ("Adults, too, deserve a security blanket," says Brahms Mount.) Also, since it's an investment, I looked for all natural materials, like wool, cashmere, linen, cotton--no polyester! Here's what I found...

Under NuBe Green’s owner, artists really come into their own. Along with her husband Bill, NuBe Green owner Ruth True is one of the city’s foremost art collectors. But after two years of developing in-house lines for her all-American mercantile, it’s looking like her real talent is artisan collecting.

The recent cold spell that took over most of the country this past week was a welcome change for some of us. It got me thinking about how much I love cool weather and the ability to open up the windows and snuggle up on the couch with a cozy (and chic!) throw blanket.

You saw it. The "Made in America" team knocking on doors in a Seattle neighborhood. From house to house to house, we emptied homes of furniture and other household items that had not been made in the U.S.Then, residents were hit with the real challenge: Find one thing left in their homes—or at a store—that had been manufactured here and that they could not wait to share with the rest of the country.

I recently mentioned the construction of Greenfab‘s model home in Seattle, and that home is now complete. I think you’ll agree, it’s just as warm and handsome as the renderings. The six-module abode — on target for LEED Platinum and Built Green 5-Star certification — has 1,790 square feet with three bedrooms, two and three-quarters bathrooms, a separate mother-in-law space, a planted rooftop deck, and an urban chicken coop.
