Remodelista.com, the go-to home interiors and renovation website for design enthusiasts and professionals, today announced upcoming Remodelista Holiday Markets in Portland, Ore., on Dec. 17-18.
Operated by Move, Inc. Remodelista is a subsidiary of News Corp. Launched in 2007, Remodelista guides readers through the home design and renovation process based on the philosophy that everything in your home is worthy of careful consideration.
Remodelista has won numerous online home design awards, and also been recognized as a leading resource for home furnishing and design ideas by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Martha Stewart Living, Elle Décor, Real Simple, Dwell and Sunset magazines.
Remodelista Markets offer site readers a chance to shop for one-of-a-kind, handmade goods from a select group of artisan makers and designers, as well as a chance to connect with the people behind their favorite products. Both markets will feature a variety of home goods, as well as clothing, jewelry, organic botanicals, artisanal foods, and more.
Occurring annually since 2010, the Remodelista Markets enjoy a strong reception in the design community, both online and offline. This year’s Portland Market will be co-hosted by Rejuvenation in their flagship location in southeast Portland. Remodelista is also teaming up with media partner, GRAY, to get the word out to design fans in the Pacific Northwest. Entry into the market is free.
Founded in Portland, Ore., in 1977, Rejuvenation serves as a general store of functional and beautiful goods for home improvement projects that add real value to homes and buildings. From classic American-crafted lighting and timeless hardware to useful house parts and home goods, Rejuvenation’s high-quality products are inspired by history, designed for modern consumers and made to last.
A member of the Williams-Sonoma Inc. family of brands, Rejuvenation offers in-home design consultations and sells its products by catalog; at retail stores in Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Palo Alto, Atlanta and Chicago later this month.
GRAY is North America’s only media dedicated exclusively to design centered on the greater Pacific Northwest region of the U.S. and Canada. GRAY’s print and digital magazines, talks, competitions, website, and events are curated to reflect the intellect and culture of leading design in this region.
Established in 2011, GRAY presents the best of the best in interiors, architecture, fashion, art, and design– encouraging a global audience of more than 1 million designers and consumers to look to the Pacific Northwest for sourcing, inspiration, and leadership.
“The Remodelista ethos and aesthetic strongly resonates with our readers, who are passionate about the site and see us as a community of like-minded thinkers,” said Julie Carlson, editor in chief for Remodelista. “These markets are an antidote to the world of online commerce, offering a chance to meet and mingle with the makers and learn their stories.”

“Hosting these markets is a way to directly introduce Remodelista’s readers to artisans who might otherwise have trouble reaching a larger market,” said Regina Connell communications director for Heath Ceramics. “We’re thrilled to be involved in an event that… combines their refined design inspiration with our favorite local talents.”
“We look forward to seeing the beautiful goods from vendors invited by Remodelista; they have an incredible eye and are dedicated to quality and craftsmanship,” said Kate Sullivan, brand marketing lead for Rejuvenation.
