FUTURE FRAME
Although the Bonds pride themselves on buying almost exclusively vintage, sometimes even they cheat. These antique-style frames from Pottery Barn, for instance, can pass for period style—with a much lower price point. From $19 at Pottery Barn, 310 NW 23rd Ave, potterybarn.com

COLLECTING CALLS
A relic from a time when phones meant party lines and bells, this 1907 Stromberg-Carlson phone hangs on the Bonds’ kitchen wall. Though it’s been switched to touch-tone for convenience, “the crank arm still works!” says Chris. Find similar at the Phone Company, 14021 NE Fremont St, 503-253-1124.

LOCAL ART

COOL COPY
“We almost went for an antique icebox, but it was too expensive,” Audry says. Instead, they took a modern approach: behind the expert custom cabinetry and period hinges lies a brand-new integrated Miele refrigerator. From $7,195 at Basco, 1411 NW Davis St, bascoappliances.com

HOME RANGE
Huge and heavy, this 1899 cast-iron New Economy Elevated stove still starts with the strike of a match. The Bonds had it restored to its shiny original glory with one update: the upper gas ovens were insulated and converted to electric. From $8,500 at Dave Erickson Stoves, ericksonsantiquestoves.com
