Art + Design + I Want This

Radar Sconces from Schoolhouse Electric.

OK, so what is going on these last couple of weeks? First it was the housewares from Ferm that seem to have been created just for the sake of my happiness, then it was the clothes that have “Anna” written all over them (not literally, thank goodness), and now it’s the new Radar sconces from Schoolhouse Electric that are so totally me that they even have little crosses die-cut out of the front!! What does that little cross mean? I dunno, but it sure looks cool and now I want one. Or two. LOOK AT THE ORANGE (sorry, I mean “persimmon”) ONE, GUYS. How amazing would that be on a black wall?!

I’ve blogged about Schoolhouse Electric a bunch of times over the years, and I have their lights all over my house. They make a really, really good product, and they genuinely care about quality of construction. It makes me happy that they’re continually adding to their product line and going in new directions design-wise.

Schoolhouse designed the Radar sconces in collaboration with Ace Hotel Portland, and they made a cute video together showing the manufacturing and site installation process. You can read more about the story behind them on their website.

    holy bananas these are CUTE. I’m typically up on what Schoolhouse Electric is up to, but I haven’t been to their site in awhile to see whats new. Off to drool over everything else.

    I was *just* looking at their site today as I’m looking for a pendant light….for my non-existent apartment. Soon. Soon. Lol.

    Can I also just say that I *love* how much more you’ve been writing lately? LOVE. I’ve been a bit of a bad commenter during my self-imposed blogging break, but I have been reading along and I appreciate how thoughtful and authentic your posts are…whether it’s on nail polish, blogging, travel, or house related things. If you do decide to go ahead with ads I wouldn’t mind one bit as I know you’d do it with the same integrity, thoughtfulness, and authenticity as you do with all of your posts. Enjoy London 🙂

      Thank you for saying that, K. We’ve been reading each other’s blogs for a long time now, and I really respect your opinion about these things. Thanks for having faith in me. 🙂

    I love these so much. I might have to get a new bed just to go with these.

    • Anna @ D16 September 22, 2012 at 12:31 am

      Haha, I was thinking along similar lines. It makes sooooo much sense, right? A new bed to go with the new lamps…

    I am in love with Schoolhouse. I have their stuff all over my apartment. Just bought a new sconce for my living room and it literally makes me happy every time I walk around the corner. Can’t get enough of them.

    I really love the yellow lamp. In fact I’m falling in love with their entire line! Thanks again for sharing. I get the most inspiration from your website.
