Shopper’s Diary: The New Spring Collection by Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.

May 2, 2014

We’ve long been fans of Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co, the Portland, Oregon-based lighting company known for its turn-of-the-century-inspired light fixtures, furniture and home wares (and ability to elevate the simple elegance of the Edison filament bulb to singular star status). This week the Spring 2014 collection debuts, with outdoor accessories that do what Schoolhouse does best: adding fresh design elements to the home–indoors and out, for work and for play. And don’t miss the jump rope.

Many of Schoolhouse’s products are designed, manufactured, sold (or shipped) right the company’s more than 125,000-square-foot Portland headquarters. (Next time you’re in Portlandia, set aside an afternoon.)    

Above: A Schoolhouse Steel Planter Box ($150) will add flowers or succulents to an entry way. 

Above: The Sunstripe Garden Trowel and Cultivator ($35 each) are examples of ergonomic design and have durable stainless steel heads and hardwood handles, as well as Schoolhouse’s signature stripes.

Above: Painted Concrete Candleholders ($36 and $42) are heavy enough to remain in place if a wind picks up.

Above: A Gilded Edge Vessel is the right size for a small succulent. These glazed vessels are $39 apiece.

 Above: Not just for children, a 9-foot Recess Rope is $18. 

 Above: A vintage style Schoolhouse Electric Tallboy Cooler has a built-in bottle opener; $140.

 Above: A handmade wood Garden Trug has solid brass hardware and is $58.

Above: The Schoolhouse Electric Flagship Retail Showroom is open from 10 am to 6 pm from Monday to Saturday and on Sunday from 11 am to 4 pm. It’s at 2181 NW Nicolai Street, Portland, OR 97210.
