Schoolhouse Electric was founded by Brian Faherty in 2003 following his discovery of a long-lost collection of cast-iron glass shade moulds in an abandoned warehouse. After carefully restoring them back into production, the hard-working team at Schoolhouse has continued to grow every year since. Together we're dedicated to the preservation of American manufacturing, thoughtful living and purposeful design.
Our inspiration comes from an innate affection for pieces with a past and the belief that something worth owning now is worth owning forever. In mixing eras and styles, with an ever-present focus on quality, we encourage people to create collections that reflect their own unique lives while embracing quirks and individuality.
From iconic lighting and furniture to analog clocks, art and domestic utility goods, our aim is to create the next generation of heirlooms. Along with our own Schoolhouse originals, we are proud to collaborate with other talented makers, artists and craftspeople outside our walls to offer an eclectic assortment of quality, one-of-a-kind goods with stories of their own.
The heart of Schoolhouse lives in Portland, Oregon inside an over-century-old brick factory building. Here we manufacture our lighting and other wares; we design our collections; we ship our finished creations and most importantly, we dream of what’s next while working collectively to create something bigger than ourselves. Many hands work in many ways to bring each of our products to life, all under this very same roof.
