Schoolhouse Electric was founded by Brian Faherty in 2003 following his discovery of a long-lost collection of cast-iron glass shade molds inside an old storage warehouse in Port Jervis, New York.

grow every year since. Together we're dedicated to the
preservation of American manufacturing, thoughtful

Seek products that have stories to tell
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

— Our Factory —
115 year-old warehouse turned factory + retail space

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

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.
