Portland's Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. got its start when Brian Faherty came across some old cast-iron molds for hanging lamps once prevalent in American public schools. Since then, the brand has expanded to carry a whole swath of housewares and lifestyle products with an old-school slant. Here's a couple of items we found on their reinvented website that would make great gifts, either for yourself or someone on your list.
Lift lamp, $99
Drafting chair, $288
