It's Electric. boogie oogie oogie oogie
Schoolhouse Electric Co. makes vintage-esque period-correct light fixtures that are great looking and totally made in the U.S.A. Antique shade molds are discovered and restored. Then the shades are hand-blown and hand-painted in West Virginia. Metal parts are custom made in Los Angeles. Metal finishing, patina and plating and final assembly is all taken care of at headquarters back in Portland. We love this company's commitment to excellence in both design and quality. We also admire their commitment to employing Americans in the creation of their goods!
