Are there any commonly used passenger aircraft larger than regional jets (100+ seats) that aren't Boeing or Airbus?
If so, what are they and where are they used?

Yes. Ignoring companies that used to exist but are now bankrupt/merged into Airbus or Boeing, you have companies from countries that aren't historically too friendly with the US and Western Europe. For instance, Tupolev makes the Tu-204, which is currently in production and seats over 175 passengers. The Ilyushin-designed Il-96 is a widebody in current use some places (Russia, Cuba). Before the Cold War ended, Russia had more indigenous airliners; Aeroflot now largely uses Boeings and Airbuses, but there are still Russian aircraft that see use.
In addition, you have newer manufacturers starting to enter the market: Bombardier with their CSeries, Comac (in China) with their C919 (in development), and Irkut with their MC-21 (in development). Embraer makes planes of more than 100 seats (although they're shorter-range, and you might consider them regional jets).
Being used but out of production:
Boeing = Historic Boeing, not McDonnell Douglas, or plain Douglas
Airbus = Historic Airbus.
Commonly used= ?

The MD-80 series is still in fairly widespread use, and it wasn't made by Boeing or Airbus either. The MD-11 is getting harder to find in passenger service, although it's still used for cargo.
Bombardier make regional jets but their new C series is a 737/A320 class 80-120 seat aircraft
Yes , of course.
Tupolev, Antonov, Douglas(I thinks at least they made earlier) and Ilyushin have made many.
While Boeing and Airbus are the most common, Russia, China , India etc. do use (or may be used) other airlines.
