These are the things I like about School House Electric & Supply Co.
1) A clean, well designed online store with impressive use of typography.
2) Everything is about $100.
3) Everything is made for vintage, warehouse'y looking interiors (woo!).
And clearly, they're obsessed with Edison Bulbs. I mean, who wouldn't be, Edison Bulbs are delicious, but for those of us who own fixtures with Edison bulbs (and we own four), I can tell you, they're like owning a vintage car -- expensive replacement parts and in need of constant maintenance. I wouldn't recommend them for oft'used lights. All of ours are in bathrooms, and they've all burned out a gazillion times. We need dimmers.
Anytoots, back to School House. Of all of their inventory, I was spoken to by these shiny things:
|Lyon Surface Mount Light - $95, and comes in polished nickel, my favorite!|
|Emory Wall Sconce - $99, let me get my knife and fork and napkin, one moment.|
|Hendrix Surface Mount - $109, tt's like ice cream, but a light fixture.|
School House, way to go against the grain and win.
I give you, the vintage light switch and dimmer collection:
|Three-way Dimmer Switch - $44|
|Push Button One Gang Coverplate - $18, we need this in the hallway bathroom, also everywhere.|
I'm just tickled, what a great find! What do you think of School House Electric? Old news to you or super fun and new and exciting?
