School House Electric & Supply Co.

11 Jan


I thought I’d share this nifty company School House with ya’ll –Β  just in case some of you were not aware of it’s being!
They don’t sell very Mid Century Modern items, but more in the Art Deco style. Which is cool for all you folks who have one of those houses built prior to the 1960s, with rounded corners and glassblock accents! Our friends just bought a beautiful two bedroom Deco style house in Land Park, and I could see that neighborhood of houses benefiting from this website :D

Sometimes older houses get their original lighting taken out and replaced with wispy leaf sconce that have gold specks on the glass. I know, I HAD ONE – and I’m sure there’s someone else out there reading this blog who understands what I am talking about. Another terrible thing about losing an original sconce is that almost all new sconces look like wispy leaves and finding vintage ones in good condition is damn near impossible.



School House would be a great solution for anyone who has a bootiful craftsman, artdeco home that previous owners remodeled in the 80’s or 90’s, and would like to bring it back to it’s original glory. Or it’s great for those of us who just like vintage designs!

They also sell numbers, hinges, and a whole lot more. Check ’em out to see if there is anything there that you have been looking for! School House Electric & Supply Co.
