Looking to the past for inspiration is nothing new for us—we started as an architectural salvage and lighting restoration shop in the 1970s, and we've always been inspired by the past to create the period authentic and modern lighting that we assemble to order at our Portland, Oregon factory.
To start the design process, we often turn to our archives as a resource for research and inspiration. Rejuvenation is home to thousands of old industrial lighting catalogs and manufacturing guides dating back nearly 150 years. A beautiful form, a knurled finial, or interesting shade—these are all details that could be the starting point for a new collection—and our best-selling Carson Lighting Collection is no different.
Inspired by industrial warehouse lighting from the early 1900s, we designed our updated version to be customizable—so that you can create a light that is perfectly personalized for any area of your home. Available as a ceiling light, wall sconce or post light, choose from our distinctive deep dome shade (which comes in three sizes) or an angled dome shade perfect for directing light towards a specific area. Carson is available in 26 vibrant colors—so it's easy to match your home.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of our beloved collection, we’ve rounded up our favorite looks that you’ve shared with us on Instagram.
