While we were walking around Brimfield for the past few days (a post on our finds is coming up next!) lighting was a major, major “trend”. I know it seems silly to call something so basic and necessary a trend, but I can’t stress how creative and abundant the lighting options were. We noticed all the fancy store buyers (J Crew, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren POLO, etc.) tagging industrial lighting options like crazy so I kept my eyes peeled for great lights all show. We’re rounding up some of our favorites on the blog this week, but I wanted to kick off the lighting theme with some beautiful new table lamps from Portland’s Schoolhouse Electric.
Handmade from concrete, porcelain and salvaged vintage glass and science lab lights, Schoolhouse Electric’s new series comes in twelve different styles. I’m really partial to the Matter Lamp (top image above) because it feels like a small piece of tabletop sculpture. The contrast of glass and concrete is so striking but still so simple- these would be perfect for a minimal office desk or even a modern entryway. Though their bulb-type would make them perfect for bedside lamps, too. You can view the entire range ($85-$249) right here and shop online if you’d like to bring one of these beauties home. Thanks to Michelle for the tip! xo, grace
