I’m absolutely mad about Schoolhouse Electric’s new line of housewares and furnishings. It was an unexpected and pleasant surprise from an already favorite lighting source.

The collection is a blend of traditional and mid-century, with handcrafted quality and warmth. I’ve asked Santa for some new bedding and have my eye on the colorful cabin textures on this bed.

It pays attention to the climate, your preferred temperature settings, and your living/working patterns, helping to save household energy consumption (not to mention a few bucks).
