Design Tips: Restored Vintage Lighting

Looking for the latest trend in lighting? Tired of  everything looking the same? How about something old!

Rejuvenation started in Portland, Oregon in 1975, selling architectural salvage and restoring old light fixtures. They began making high-quality and beautiful vintage reproductions. When I refurbished my first house, a 1925 bungalow, I found a brand new Rejuvenation fixture for the back porch that matched the originals on the front! I bought matching glass shades for all and they all looked great.

Rejuvenation also restores vintage fixtures big and small. Not only are they rewired, the finishes are cleaned or redone. They often come in sets, too, like the pictured sconce. Some of these fixtures may not be suitable for all applications, since they are still old. But the helpful staff should be able to answer your questions.

I particularly love these ceramic polychrome porcelain fixtures. If you have an old house or just need a big dose of charm, check out the collection. If you see one you like, hurry, they go fast!

Until next time!
