Well, it’s like this: We’re people-people!
Which we realize is kind of cliché, but it’s really true.
When Jim Kelly opened Rejuvenation as a salvage shop in 1977, his purpose was simple — to find (and later make) the lighting and house parts he, his friends and his fellow Portlanders needed to renovate their cool old houses. Because it was a small shop, he made one-on-one connections with his customers and the people who worked with him, and that spirit is still deep within our DNA.
We always hear from our customers that our lights are more than just something to brighten their rooms — they’re dinner table conversation. They’ve got real history, because they’re based on historical originals. We love to share that history so people can talk to others about where their lights have been. But we also love to hear what happens to our lights when they leave our craftsmen’s (and craftswomen’s) hands, and have a long history of listening to our customers, not just talking to them. We want this blog to be a continuation of that dialogue.
To do this we’re having people from all parts of the company write posts, answer questions, and just generally be available for some good, old-fashioned conversation.
