Founded in 2003 by Brian Faherty, Schoolhouse was born when the Pacific Northwest native discovered a long-lost collection of cast-iron glass shade moulds.
Inspiration struck, and Brian decided to found a company dedicated to the preservation of such thoughtful American manufacturing – one that would see old-fashioned methods used in the creation of modern heirlooms.
Now aiding them in this noble endeavour is top site search and personalization provider, Findify.
As the best and most reliable Shopify Plus marketplace app offering a highly advanced Site Search and Personalization software solution, Findify was the top choice for Schoolhouse and its leading US web agency Fuel Made.

The full Findify suite is now live on Schoolhouse’s website, helping their customers find their preferred products quicker and easier, as well as inspiring new product discoveries.
“When it came time to choose an app partner, we worked with our client to find a solution that was robust enough to handle their technical complexity while adhering to their incredible sense of design – and we found that perfect balance in Findify,” explained Ashley Pair from Fuel Made.
Using Site Search and Personalization to increase ecommerce revenue and improve the shopper journey
Findify’s intelligent Personalized Search solution enables online shoppers in finding their preferred items quicker and easier. Search queries will have autocomplete options while advanced spelling tolerance will ignore spelling mistakes and provide instant results while typing.
This swift and dependable solution ensures retailers are always displaying the most relevant products, by re-ordering them using an advanced AI-powered personalization algorithm. It also serves to nudge search behaviour through “inspirational search” – displaying trending searches and trending products, while both “smart filtering” and “sorting” functionalities enable shoppers to find their desired items faster.

Findify’s Smart Collections solution, meanwhile, includes personalized product ranking, dynamic filters, and the ability to create merchandising rules.
It is possible to customize almost every aspect of the solution: product card look and layout, information contained on product card, layout of the filters, the filtering options and colour swatches, and much more. Notably, Schoolhouse chose to include customized colour swatches directly below its customized product cards.

Finally, the Recommendations solution identifies ‘Hot Sellers’, ‘Recently Viewed Items’, ‘Frequently Bought Together’, ‘Customers Who Viewed This Ultimately Bought’, and ‘Newest Products’. This reliable ecommerce tool allows retailers to maximize their online store’s upsell and cross-sell capabilities without having to manually curate the products shown.
The full suite also includes advanced analytics, which enables merchants to better understand the behaviour of their shoppers by giving them access to extremely valuable, trustworthy, and actionable, insights.

‘A truly unique integration, complete with beautiful customizations and features’
“At Findify, we always welcome every new client with open arms, though it is always particularly satisfying to work with clients who have agencies. In this case, we worked closely with our US partner Fuel Made. It has been fantastic to work with them on this integration of our solutions,” said Findify CEO, Philip Nobel.
“The end result is another beautiful integration. We are extremely proud of this project, and we are delighted to showcase it.”
