Let there be lighting

When choosing lighting for my early mid-century house, I considered Rejuvenation, who have been offering quality period lighting for thirty years. I like their products, but was looking for even more classic, streamlined options.

Then I discovered that schoolhouse rocks. Schoolhouse Electric Co., that is. This company, also based in Portland, creates hand-blown glass shades from cast-iron moulds and laboriously shapes brass fixtures to craft beautiful lighting designs reminiscent of those used in schoolrooms, office buildings and homes of the early- to mid-20th century.

I chose fixtures and shades for five rooms (and shot crap photos of them).
