Some days, it’s all about who you know. I’m lucky enough to be in-the-know at the marketing department of Rejuvenation, where you can find a treasure trove of American lighting and house parts. Nicole and I go way back to elementary school and last month she treated me to a private tour of Rejuvenation’s factory. Ever stop and wonder what goes on after you place an order? At Rejuvenation, products are not just manufactured overseas and at a warehouse, awaiting your purchase. Many of Rejuvenation’s reproduction pieces are assembled to order, right here in Portland, Oregon!
Product assembly in the U.S is certainly on the decline. At Rejuvenation, it’s great to see skilled folks assembling/finishing/wiring your order on-demand.I knew you could find all manner of authentic reproduction lighting in Rejuvenation’s catalogue, but I was thrilled to discover this company is also still true to its roots in lighting restoration and architectural salvage. Some of these gems find a new life in the restored antiques section of the website.Did somebody say salvage? I love architectural salvage so I could have spent all night in this section pouring over all the fascinating finds from the past.
One last shoutout for the Rejuvenation Facebook page. FB fans can regularly find behind-the-scenes photos and insight into other customer projects. It’s a great way to stay abreast of local events (usually in Portland/Seattle area) or simply soak-up enough creative inspiration to work some lighting magic into your own home.

Nice photos! I was lucky enough to do a factory tour earlier this year. It’s impressive and fascinating to see just how they do make their magic!
