Our Top 5 Trade Spaces of 2017

Last year was an exciting time for Schoolhouse trade and in celebration of all the fun projects we worked on, we thought we'd look back on a few of our most popular trade space features of 2017. We take special pride in being a top resource for trade professionals working in every facet of the industry and love any opportunities to partner in creating beautiful spaces for projects big and small. From digital agencies to restaurants, hospitality groups and beyond, you can now find Schoolhouse in almost any city (especially if you keep those eyes peeled!). Our thoughtful designs and heirloom, crafted-to-last quality bring a special element to commercial and residential builds of all styles and we're looking forward to another year with some very big projects on the horizon. Without further ado, here are our Top 5 Schoolhouse Spaces from last year:  


#1: Tusk Restaurant in Portland, Oregon


"Bright, airy and full of good vibes as far as the eye can see, 
Tusk restaurant is a beacon of middle-eastern flavor and rock-fused fantasy in Southeast Portland. With bold brass Schoolhouse light fixtures dripping from the walls and ceiling, an oversized portrait of Keith Richards lounging in a pool and awe-worthy succulents abound, it's fair to say that this Portland palace is our new favorite go-to spot for after-work dinner and drinks."

#2: The Wendell Home in Nashville, Tennessee 


"There’s a lot to love about America’s music city: famous hot chicken, endless live shows, and whiskey for miles. Not that we needed it but now we’ve got one more reason to pack our bags and head down south to Nashville, Tennessee: The Wendell Home. Located in East Nashville, this beautiful Airbnb is packed with Schoolhouse goodies and has been thoughtfully renovated from top to bottom. Designed by New-York-based stylist Alana Stipech and her husband Kristopher, they bought the home last year and instantly started updating the space. The result is a truly stunning, bright and happy place - basically a dream Airbnb rental where visitors (of course) are always welcome." See more: Schoolhouse Spaces: The Wendell Home 

#3: Le Marais Bakery in San Fransisco, California


"Named after the historic arts district in Paris' fourth arrondissement, Le Marais is a stunning slice of France situated in the vibrant Castro neighborhood of San Fransisco. Each morning, as is tradition throughout Europe, fresh bread and pastries are made from scratch and the glorious scent of french butter croissants fill the outside air. Ever since their doors opened last year, the bistro and bakery has drawn large crowds hungry for a bite of Paris and a loaf of freshly baked bread. Designed with beautiful Schoolhouse lighting throughout and thoughtful European-inspired touches, Le Marais is an ode to the classic French bakeries owner Patrick Ascaso grew up with."

#4: Instrument in Portland, Oregon


"Innovative and bursting with heart, Portland’s favorite independent digital agency Instrument practices what they preach by crafting inspiring and thoughtful products and experiences for major brands like Google, Facebook, and Nike. 
Though everything they do is grounded in the tech sphere, their physical surroundings are a crucial element to their online successes. It makes sense that when given complete control over their workspace Instrument would create something truly stunning in providing a home where creativity and collaboration can spark the next big idea."

#5: Tallulah's in Seattle, Washington


"Welcoming, cool and vintage-vibed, our latest 
Schoolhouse Space is an enticing neighborhood spot in the ever-buzzy Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Opened in 2013 by The Derschang Group, a collective known for creating uniquely delectable city institutions, Tallulah’s continues to thrive and attract the hungry and thirsty en masse."
