founded by brian faherty in 2003 following his discovery of a long-lost collection of cast-iron glass shade moulds in an abandoned warehouse, schoolhouse has every ingredients the creative makers believe in: the preservation of american manufacturing, thoughtful living and purposeful design.
i’ve been eyeing this issac pendant for a while. the minimal look of scandinavian-meets-vintage would be perfect for our second floor hallway. the isaac pendant is part of the Schoolhouse Electric Original, handcrafted in the portland factory.

things i miss the most about tokyo is the access to so many incredible, high crafted home goods. you can walk into a department stores or lifestyle shops (zakka) and easily find many good design that you want to bring home. i am glad that i made my choice quickly and brought some of them home – including the azmaya chopstick rest : the design is modern, minimal, with high artisen quality.

today’s mix is about craftsmanship, including a good cup of cappuccino.

here are some design that associate with wood, brass, leather, and oxidation. something new and something vintage. things that somehow can go along well in one space… i think.
