Here at Rejuvenation, we love 4th of July activities as much as anyone – picnicking, grilling, parades. And once the day has passed, we like getting back to the things we do year-round to keep the spirit of July 4th alive.
For starters, we’re dedicated to recreating classic American light fixtures and hardware, and are grateful to have been included in so many wonderful historic preservation projects over the years. Recently, we’ve provided fixtures for the Texas Governor’s mansion and The Breed Street Shul in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles (two historic synagogues saved from ruin). Projects like these allow us to actively participate in keeping our nation’s past alive.
We’re also committed to assembling and hand finishing our products right here in Portland, Oregon. Rejuvenation employs more than 50 highly skilled craftspeople who do just that. Keeping local folks employed and giving back to the community are an important part of how we conduct our business.
We also take pains to seek out and partner with other American companies as rooted in craftsmanship and tradition as we are. Some of our schoolhouse shades are made by a family-owned West Virginia glassmaking company with more than 100 years of experience. Likewise, the aluminum shades for our warehouse fixtures are painstakingly spun and painted by hand in California. Again, we are proud to help these artisan businesses thrive, and to share their expertise and craft with you.
And, speaking of warehouse shades, we offer them in the very patriotic options of red, white, and blue (as well as green and black).
