Get Schooled

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.

Hand-Painted Banding

At Barn Light Electric, the art of hand painting bands of color on schoolhouse globes comes to life. Skilled artisans meticulously apply the finish color of choice ensuring precision and authenticity. Several banding options are available from a wide single stripe to multiple thin stripes. This labor-intensive process yields unique fixtures that capture the charm of yesteryear and add a bespoke touch to every space they illuminate.
