Originally inspired by a light used on an industrial parts washer, this Radar Sconce light fixture is the perfect accessory for your utilitarian-style home. Portland-based SCHOOLHOUSE Electric Supply & Co collaborated with ACE Hotel to create this 70s inspired Radar Sconce in 6 different color variations.
“ When sourcing parts, we stumbled upon a 1970s stamped electrical box from one of our East Coast vendors that had the vintage tooling but hadn’t used in decades. We crushed hard on all the stamped details, including a cross, risk-of-fire warning, and wattage rating on the canopy box face. Functional communication incorporated into the design is what makes many vintage designs so rad. The perforated guard matches the original industrial parts washer diffuser, but we developed a clever way to attach it using magnets so that the thumbscrews don’t scratch the paint. This fixture is practical, colorful and flexible—a beautiful and simple example of American industrial lighting.” – SCHOOLHOUSE Electric Supply & Co.
Available now for $159 at SCHOOLHOUSE Electric Supply & Co.

Interested in buying the custom-made Mitchell Gold+Bob Williams 4-seater sofa, with special order gray velvet upholstery? My puppy tore open the left arm upholstery. :( So what was once a $3800 sofa is now $1000 – that is IKEA pricing y’all! Other then the torn arm, it’s in great condition. If you are interested and want a few pics emailed of the torn arm fabric, email me at email@example.com.
Thank You LA!
Our 5th Annual Spring Show was another great success, thanks to the amazing and talented vendors and to the 14,000+ shoppers that came to buy local and enjoy community!

Because of your support we were able to donate $3000 to our great non-profit partner the Downtown Women’s Center who have been a vital part of the community for over 35 years. In 2011 they opened MADE by DWC, an amazing cafe and boutique in downtown LA that sells products created locally by homeless and low-income women at the Downtown Women’s Center, and they just opened a new re-sale store nearby! I hope you’ll visit their website to learn more about the organization and how you can get involved and help.
UNIQUE LA shows could not be possible without the great support, enthusiasm and energy from our Sponsors! Like us, they believe in community and ‘quality over quantity’. If you enjoyed a free drink or discovered a tasty new treat, please show them love by visiting their websites. You’ll find them all here. :)
Thank you again for an amazing show, we hope to see you at our Summer Show held in Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar on July 13 & 14!
