I have always associated the Portland-based company Schoolhouse Electric solely with classic, vintage-inspired lighting, and only recently discovered that they sell much more than that in their retail showroom and online. Here are some of my favorite finds. Most of them are made in America, most are somewhat affordable, and all will add a stylish accent to your living space. Now's a great time to check out the site and pick up some treats for yourself or as gifts; they're offering 30% off on selected items as part of their "spring cleaning" sale.

Leather pouffes by Schoolhouse Electric
The company sells a range of different furnishings, from beds to sofas to smaller pieces like these American-made leather pouffes, which come in three hues and work great as either an ottoman or coffee table.

Ion Lamp by Schoolhouse Electric
The porcelain Ion lamp has a twisted fabric-covered cord and looks great topped with an Edison bulb. It also comes in an olive/black version.

Bryant lamp by Schoolhouse Electric
The brass, walnut, and concrete Bryant lamp—shown here with a perforated metal shade—was one of my favorite discoveries on the site. I'd put this baby on my bedside table.

Appalachian white ash basket by Schoolhouse Electric
A woven Appalachian white ash basket is the ideal catchall for magazines, throw blankets, toys, and fire logs.

Japanese striped chambray-and-terrycloth towels
I am smitten with these striped chambray-and-terrycloth towels from Japan. Want, want, want!

Another pick for the bathroom—these hand-carved soapstone bowls and trays from India are appealingly earthy and organic.
