Schoolhouse Electric Co.


Schoolhouse Electric Co. is a Portland-based company that's bringing back tried-and-true lighting designs from the earlier half of the 20th century.

The extensive catalog features lighting and glass shades in a range of shapes, sizes and finishes (including hand-painted and art glass). Retro lighting switches are also available. All the materials are American-made. The fixtures are cast in heavy-gauge solid brass and hand-finished; and the shades are hand-blown in West Virginia.

In addition to the catalog Schoolhouse Electric also fills custom orders.
