What is Schoolhouse Lighting?

Early pendant lights were often simple bare bulbs hanging from a cord. In the early 20th century, lighting manufacturers began to cover up these bare bulbs with hand-blown, opaque globes. These new lights were installed in public spaces, such as schoolrooms, libraries, and courthouses. The current trend for all things vintage has brought the schoolhouse fixture into both residential and commercial spaces.

Types of Schoolhouse Lighting Fixtures

Historically, only schoolhouse pendant lighting was available. While still popular as pendants, schoolhouse lights are now prominent as:

With dozens of customization options to choose from — including both clear and the more traditional opaque globe — schoolhouse lighting can be crafted to perfectly complement many contemporary décor styles.

Room and Usage      

Schoolhouse fixtures are adaptable to many interior locations and are often found in:

  • Bathrooms as vanity lighting
  • Kitchens as task lighting above islands
  • Dining rooms and living spaces for ambience
  • Laundry rooms for a vintage touch

Schoolhouse lighting also adds a classic look to restaurants, office spaces, and retail stores. Our hand-crafted schoolhouse shades can be customized with colorful fitters and canopies, or optional painted bands on the globe to add even more visual appeal.
