Schoolhouse Electric Co. Opens on Vestry Street


Light fixtures cast from molds used in early-twentieth-century schools and libraries sound drab, but the stock at Schoolhouse Electric Co. (27 Vestry St., nr. Hudson St.; 212-226-6113) is surprisingly eclectic, ranging from Art Deco to colorful hand- painted models. Prices start around $100.

Not content with vintage, outlet, jewelry, and kids stores, Calypso stretches St. Bart’s chic even further with its new home store (199 Lafayette St., nr. Spring St.; 212-925-6200). Island-vacation accessories include cashmere throws in sorbet colors from the house label ($325).

Also: Bellora (156 Wooster St., nr. Prince St.; 212-228-6651) is the latest luxury Italian linen house; Cozy’s Cuts for Kids has a new flagship salon (1416 Second Ave., at 74th St.; 212-585-2699), with styling chairs shaped like sports cars; and high-end Milanese leather brand Valextra recently opened on the ground floor of Saks Fifth Avenue (611 Fifth Ave., at 49th St.; 212-753-4000).
