How to Spiff Up That Box You Call a Home

Rejuvenation: A dose of style for your den, by way of Portland

When looking for furniture with genuine character, the flea market is king.

That is, if you delight in bargaining for genuine junk.

A better, more pedigreed alternative: Rejuvenation, the Portland-based home goods purveyor that knows  from vintage, now open in Lincoln Park.
