wilson_house_temple_texas

I have seen the photos of the Wilson house before, but never bothered to find out more about it until last month (shame on me). I was searching for mid-century modern related places to visit in the Austin, Texas area and found out the Wilson house was on our way in Temple, Texas.

The company started as an architectural salvage shop in 1977 by Jim Kelly. All of their lighting is assembled and finished in Portland, Oregon with as many as American-made parts as possible. My […]

Rejuvenation’s Newest Addition to Mid-Century Modern Collection

Rejuvenation Gemini

I have been eyeing Rejuvenation’s Mid-Century Modern Collection for a while.
