A Texas Big Moment

Two-hundred well-heeled designers, architects and design-lovers fêted the opening of Rejuvenation’s first showroom in Texas. Naturally, this is Texas, so the 5,100-square-foot retail and showroom space is the largest Rejuvenation to date. 

Guests sipped vino and enjoyed light bites while browsing more than 500 light fixtures, as well as hardware, furniture, textiles and vintage items. Rejuvenation’s national director of trade Jerry Huettman and brand marketer Liana Cavness were in from Portland for the event, joining store manager Audrey Yust.

Designers, long familiar with Rejuvenation’s catalog and website, were excited to have a new resource on the ground in Houston, and to learn about the to-the-trade program available to interior designers, architects, and contractors. In addition, the in-store design team was on hand to assist new clients on everything from small-scale residential remodels to lighting for large-scale commercial spaces.

Now part of the Williams-Sonoma family of brands, the Portland, Oregon-based lighting, hardware and home goods retailer was founded in 1977 as a small architectural salvage shop. Today, Rejuvenation’s skilled artisans and craftspeople design and produce customized, made-to-order, handcrafted lighting in an 87,000-square-foot facility in Portland.

They also partner with United States family-owned factories and trusted artisans and manufacturers around the world who share their passion for quality and timeless design to create additional product offerings. Antique restoration remains at the core of the brand, and the Round Top antiques fair has been Rejuvenation’s favorite source for antique lighting for many years. These, as well as other vintage lighting and furniture collected from around the globe, are available in the Houston location.
