Thereâ€™s something very awesome about living in the city with what I have been told is the highest concentration of wooden bungalows in the U.S. â€” Portland, Oregon. Not only are you inspired by gorgeous architecture everywhere you turn, but you also have the luxury of having not one, but two, shops specializing in handcrafted period light fixtures and shades. The one everyone thinks of, and one weâ€™ve highlighted here numerous times, is, of course, Rejuvenation. So, when shopping for period-authentic lighting for the basement remodel of our own wooden bungalow, I was wide-eyed when a Google seplace for schoolhouse lights turned up a newer and lesser known Portland-based gem: Schoolhouse Electric Co. I drove down to the Portland showroom the next day and was downright giddy about my discovery. The company was founded several years ago after owner Brian Faherty found a treasure trove of original cast-iron moulds in an upstate New York warehouse. What I love most about Schoolhouse, though, is how theyâ€™ve added a modern, artistic approach to their timeless designs, such as their artist series collection featuring Portland artist Yellena James. I am now the proud owner of three of these limited edition shades, and theyâ€™ve really added a wow factor to our basement. Schoolhouse Electric has showrooms in Portland and Tribeca, New York, plus nationwide shipping. Now you just need an excuse to go buy a new light! –Ginny F.
