Brian Faherty has a passion for the past.
After discovering and restoring a long-lost collection of cast-iron, glass shade molds inside an old storage warehouse, the Portland, Ore.-based entrepreneur founded Schoolhouse Electric to create his own line of lighting and lifestyle products that transcend time and trends.
Can you build an exceptionally sustainable office center at market rate? This $28.4 million, 85,540-square-foot Portland, Ore., office center replies with a resounding “yes.”
Every year when Halloween rolls around, I’m reminded how Portland lacks a solid lineup of themed bars. Luckily, last month, seemingly overnight, an old Victorian house on North Mississippi (recently home to a short-lived sandwich shop) got all dressed up in black and neon red and took the name Psychic.
A new coffee shop from the operators of The Vandal in Lawrenceville is headed to East Liberty, in conjunction with the Portland, Ore.-based Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. Owner Joey Hilty and business partner Emily Slagel are calling it The Bureau, a cafe within the high-end lighting, housewares and furnishings store, opening at the end of October.
Psychic Bar is equal parts witchy and welcoming.

Ranch was the first to go all-in, first in Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock’s lava lamp of a bar Poison’s Rainbow (344 N.E. 28th Ave.), then with a restaurant of their own on Northeast Dekum Street.
We collaborated again with the folks who opened Portland bar Poison’s Rainbow (including Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock) on this local pizza joint.
For proof, check out the brand-new Poison’s Rainbow, from Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock and the Title Bout bar group, with food by Ranch Pizza. Yes, there are probably about $5,000-worth of terrariums inside, and yes, the art budget may be unusually high, but with a basic, goofy, and reasonably priced drink menu and excellent food for sharing, Poison’s Rainbow already feels like another comfy neighborhood spot, albeit two notches cooler.
