One of my favourite lighting suppliers is Schoolhouse Electric Co who specialize in vintage style fixtures. The company uses a series of restored moulds, and creates every piece through a hand crafted process that closely replicates the way these fixtures would have originally been produced. They are also well constructed, using heavy gauge solid brass which is finished with a hand applied patina, and all the shades are individually handblown. And in addition to being beautiful and high quality, they are incredibly well priced.




Recently they launched a collection that they collaborated on with one of my favourite artists, Yellena James, on their first artist series collection. The fixtures all feature beautiful glass shades with Yellena's drawings.

Today, an email hit my inbox announcing their new vintage brass finish, as if their line wasn't lovely enough.


I first heard about Schoolhouse from Anna at Door 16, who used their fixtures in her bathroom and bedroom, where they look just lovely in her Newburgh home.
