Homemade: Easy Peach Blackberry Cobbler

Now that we're officially in the heat of summertime, we felt there was no better time to indulge in a sweet, refreshing berry treat. We asked Marcella Dilonardo, a recipe developer and the blogger behind Modest Marce to share her favorite cobbler recipe. Inspired by simple, rustic living, Marcella's recipes are created using minimal ingredients and are always focused on what's currently in season. What can we say: Ripe, fresh berries topped with a crumble crust and served with a heap of ice cream feels oh-so-right for these midsummer months.  "There is nothing i love more then a fresh summer cobbler made...

Inside the Factory: Painting and Finishing

Walk onto the fourth floor of the Schoolhouse factory and you’ll enter a real, honest-to-goodness manufacturing center. Workers in full-body coveralls push around carts full of parts from station to station. One rack might have a dozen tubular Landau Lamp shades awaiting a dip in the patina bath. Another might have row after row of spherical Studio Floor Lamp shades uniformly lined up to dry. A major portion of this floor is dedicated to part finishing, which includes painting, lacquering, patina, and powder coating. This is generally the last collection of processes necessary to complete before products are assembled elsewhere...

Schoolhouse Spaces: People's Pig

For nearly a decade, The People’s Pig has plated some of the finest smoked meats in the city. Founded by pit master Cliff Allen in 2009, the business migrated from a downtown food cart to a brick-and-mortar restaurant on North Williams Street. Recently, the restaurant expanded to include a beautiful new space on East Burnside that features some of the charm of the North Portland location in lighter, more open dining room. Deep booths, stamped tin ceiling tiles, and a long Formica countertop give the restaurant an endearing greasy spoon diner quality, and Schoolhouse fixtures provide light for customers diving...

Drive 12 miles Northwest from Portland along the Willamette River, past the St. Johns Bridge and Forest Park, and you’ll come to Sauvie Island.

People drive, bike, and bus out to the island in...

Our Annual Inspiration Bus Tour

On a clear, cool Thursday morning in mid-June, the marketing, sales, and product development teams at Schoolhouse showed up to the office a little bit early. The time had come for the Schoolhouse Bus Tour, an annual tradition that’s not so different from the field trips most of us took as schoolchildren. The goal was to get out into the community as a group for a little bit of fun and a little bit of learning. A big yellow school bus (on loan from the Scappoose School District) pulled into the Schoolhouse loading dock to whisk us off to our...

Go Inside: Our New York City Store

Schoolhouse is proudly rooted in Portland, Oregon—where the company was founded and is currently headquartered—but since 2006, we have also maintained a storefront in New York City. The products sold at our Portland and New York stores have always been the same, but the two spaces maintain their own unique atmospheres. With a new spring refresh recently completed, now is a great time to acquaint those who recently discovered Schoolhouse with what makes our New York space so special. Located in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan, the New York store is part of a neighborhood which has historically been home...
