Early pendant lights were often simple bare bulbs hanging from a cord. In the early 20th century, lighting manufacturers began to cover these bare bulbs with hand-blown globes. These pendant lights were often installed in public spaces such as school rooms, libraries, and courthouses.
Today, schoolhouse lighting is still in demand, but mounting options have grown to include goosenecks, stem mount pendants, wall sconces, vanity lights, flush mount lights, and chandeliers. With dozens of customization options to choose from including clear or opaque glass, schoolhouse lighting can be crafted to perfectly complement most any décor.
