I've been a fan of School House Electric since way back when they were just making period lighting. Since then the Portland-based manufacturer and retailer has grown from light bulbs, fixtures and hand-blown shades to a full-on home and lifestyle shop. What I love about them most is their straight-forward aesthetic. It's simple, but fun, and seamlessly mixes old school styles and with contemporary design. Above are some of my favorites of their new items, but check out the entire store if you're not familiar, you'll likely find something that will take you back or make you smile.
