In 2017, Katie Thibodeau and Jason Thaxter, both Mainers, opened Motive Furniture & Gallery. Located just off Interstate 295 in Portland's Oakdale district. Motive Furniture is Portland's place to find a range of authentic Mid Century Modern, Danish Modern, and other modern furniture and furnishings. Katie is a life-long creative, with an BFA from Alfred University where she focused on sculpture in materials including glass, metal, and stone. In addition, Katie studied furniture design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Motive Furniture & Gallery features authentic and vintage items from the 1950s-1970s and beyond. We offer select items chosen for their authenticity, design, and quality craftsmanship, across a range of modern styles. We believe modern design rises above nostalgia, and embodies functionality and beauty fit to match contemporary styles from the past, present, and future.

Motive Furniture is pleased to offer quality items in excellent, take-home usable condition, as well as custom refinishing and upholstery on our inventory. Whether you are replacing a single item, updating a room, or furnishing a new location, Motive can provide sets and coordinated items, and locate pieces to fit specific needs. Motive can provide individualized assistance for specific spaces, public or private, with knowledge of modern looks and fresh styles, to create curated designs that are functional and unique.
