Home decor enthusiasts and interior design professionals can soon add another stop to buying trips to Palo Alto's University Avenue when Rejuvenation opens this Thursday, December 18. The home goods store —that carries everything from lighting and hardware to restored antiques and vintage finds— is putting the finishing touches on its fifth brick-and-mortar location. The new store will be located at 323 University Avenue, a block from the Restoration Hardware and down the road from West Elm.
If you're new to the brand, Rejuvenation Senior Vice Presient Marta Benson explains that the company's "heritage is in updating classic pieces through technology and materials to create functional house parts that add real value to properties — a perfect fit for the Palo Alto community." For its grand opening, the new store will feature an in-store exhibit in partnership with Steven Eichler (Joseph Eichler's grandson) to highlight the tradition of iconic Mid-Century homes on the Peninsula and to show the company's commitment to fostering and supporting American design.
Store visitors will also find exclusives collections from recent collaborations with three West Coast-based artisans: Caravan Pacific and Cedar & Moss mid-century-inspired lighting and Pigeon Toe ceramics. So whether you're tackling a large home renovation or looking for a perfect holiday gift for the self-prolaimed remodelista, head into the store for items that will breathe fresh life into every type of home.
