Hello and welcome to Rhen.Ovations! We're excited to lend a hand in creating spaces that inspire quality of life through unique design. We believe the best way to thrive is through freedom of expression without limits. Our main focus is helping to create spaces that are relaxing, inspire creativity, and energize with handmade and vintage home decor. Our spaces should reflect our personalities, desires, and dreams. Acknowledging the deep connection between home decor and well-being can help you curate a vibe in which you live better, more productively, and happily in your dwellings. At Rhen.Ovations we offer creations and ideas that help your best self thrive.
We're mother and daughter who found a deep connection with each other through our incessant need to express ourselves through art, home decor, and all other avenues of creative expression. From that connection Rhen.Ovations was born. We're a small business, based out of High Point, North Carolina where all of our creations are literally made "in-house" by us. We operate our online store as well as retail spaces in The Market; a local treasure located in our home town of High Point, and Design Archives; a beautiful store filled with eclectic goods located in downtown Greensboro, NC. Every once in a while you'll also find us on the road at special vending events. We love connecting with our loyal customers and meeting new ones!
The purpose of this site is to showcase our handmade creations and vintage treasures in addition to offering ideas on how to incorporate them into your space and everyday lives. We also want to share our journey on embracing a lifestyle that encourages self confidence and well-being. We're not here to preach. We're imperfect beings continuously evolving and invite you to join us on the ride.
Our love for home and creative expression is what inspires us! We believe that dwellings curated with items that reflect who we are increase the quality of our lives. We seek to fill our spaces with objects that are made with love, care, and high quality materials. We aim to inspire thinking outside the box of traditional home decor by combining different design aesthetics. You're unique and your spaces should reflect that.
Bringing the forgotten and discarded back to life is where our journey began. We’re always on the hunt for beautiful pieces with awesome potential. There’s something exhilarating about coming across a piece of furniture and seeing past it’s slightly rough and worn exterior. The search isn't always easy. Each piece must pass a hefty check list that includes quality and uniqueness. We look for furniture that is sturdy, has good bones, and comes from a safe environment.
Once it has passed all of our test we begin to reimagine what it can be. Our constant search for the right pieces has led us to estate and yard sales, hidden away thrift shops, and impromptu trips to get our hands on something truly unique.
Each piece is thoroughly cleaned and repaired if necessary. These careful steps ensure the pieces are structurally sound and safe to put in your home.
The focus of our business has gravitated to our handmade creations. We love bringing a thought or idea to life. Our recently launched “Handmade Collection” expresses our love for creating from scratch. This collection includes handmade home decor, custom jewelry, and lifestyle accessories. Because many our creations are handmade from quality salvaged materials; pillow covers, signs, and tote bags, no two items will ever be the same. Our custom jewelry and lifestyle accessories are originally designed, and assembled by our hands making them truly unique creations. Each piece is made with attention to detail, care, and good materials bringing those qualities with them wherever they go.
We're passionate about our vintage finds. Not only does buying vintage have a positive impact on our environment, but they're made with quality materials and have timeless appeal. Vintage allows us to source creative design from our past. What better way to express ourselves than through nostalgia. The best part about many of our finds are the interesting stories they tell. We devote time to research some of our truly unique pieces and share to you!
Last but certainly not least, our RhenArt Collection by my mother, Rhonda "Rhen" Neal. Our journey began with hers. It is from her original desire to express herself through her art that birthed what we do today. This collection is an up close and personal look in to the heart and mind of an artist on her soulful journey.
