I was one of those dorky kids who looked forward to going back to school at the end of every summer. Even now, when I think "school," I have pleasant thoughts...the scent of freshly-sharpened pencils, a brand new Trapper Keeper binder, and textbooks wrapped in brown kraft paper on which one could doodle freely. So when I saw the post at SF Girl by Bay about retro lighting fixture company Schoolhouse Electric, I knew I had to hop on over and take a look.
hand-blown & decorated glass shade
wall mount fixture with cool deco shade
ion porcelain lamp with cloth cord / this would make a cool bedside lamp
Not only are the items available beautiful (and right up my aesthetic alley), but the shades are hand-blown in the US and made using vintage moulds. I like the look of the other furnishings they've added to their line, too.
a fun bright yellow wall clock
mix & match wool plaid bolster pillows
ticking stripe sheet set
Of course, I think all these things would fit perfectly in my house. I already have these old school posters hanging in the kitchen.
