I had been a Schoolhouse shopper and super fan for many years before Food52 acquired the company. I’d buy a lamp here, hardware there, all things that spoke of quality and heritage. I knew I’d live with them for a long, long time. And I still do. Here are some of my most valued Schoolhouse belongings and the places they’ve landed in my homes.
This lamp, whose shade was designed to resemble a round of bread dough, sits on my desk in Brooklyn. Every morning when I enter my study, the first thing I do is turn the lamp’s knob, which makes a satisfying click when it turns on.
We have a handful of these sconces lighting a hallway in our Food52 headquarters. They take up minimal horizontal space and light both above and below, which makes for efficient lighting in tighter spaces.
We used these in a small, spare guest bedroom, to match the 19th-century vibe of the space.
This lamp, which can blend into pretty much any style, from traditional to modern—has a dimmable toggle. The lamp first lived in our living room and now is a mainstay in our bedroom.
This is a great spotlight sconce for a bathroom or hall. We spaced three of them around the Grant Mirrors in a bathroom used by kids in a family summer house.
We installed these knobs to update a vanity that we refurbished. We mixed metals in the bathroom, using these pulls and some vintage towel hooks in brass and polished nickel for the medicine cabinets and sink hardware.
A simple, clean mirror that’s great for a powder room or used in multiples for a larger bathroom. We used these in a kids’ bath.
I love an old school-style clock with clear typography and a sturdy frame. This clock hangs on a gallery wall in my study.
This print has been on my wish list for years. I love the lone cargo ship at sea, and find myself wanting to root it on!
This, to me, is quintessential Schoolhouse—it expresses a value that both Schoolhouse and Food52 share, and that we should all aspire to.
We purchased this stool for our first office and photo studio because there isn’t a handier, stronger, more handsome stool around.
I’ve got these coasters sprinkled around our Brooklyn apartment, saving our wood furnishings from a world of water rings!
I love the way knurling grabs your attention any time you touch these pulls, which are on a cabinet in our kids’ bathroom.
