Schoolhouse lights hold a memorable place in the lighting yearbook. These pendant lights and wall sconces have endured years of wear and tear in some situations, yet still are desirable for use within American homes. Those who purchase these wish to showcase an iconic style of lighting in their homes, businesses, museum or classic auto showrooms.
Schoolhouse pendants look best when incorporated into simple and classic designs. The frosted globes paired with understated finishes on the stems provide a traditional, American feel – flooding any room in a soft glow. They are a great choice for small coffee shops and bistros too as they provide a warm, inviting or ‘at home’ feel.
Today’s featured customer is Carol from our hometown of Titusville, Florida. She utilized schoolhouse lighting in her own recent kitchen remodel. Her new kitchen is classic in appearance, utilizing neutrals for the appliances, cabinetry and wall color. By laying this framework, Carol has set herself up for success: the kitchen blends seamlessly with the rest of her home and the décor can easily be interchanged. While incorporating neutrals is a great plan, the schoolhouse pendant over the blue-gray island is more than enough to make her kitchen unique.
The 3-Light Schoolhouse Pendant was perfect for lighting this large kitchen. By having not just one, but three lights, this particular pendant will illuminate the entire kitchen. Not only can this design be found in our Warehouse Lighting section, but there is also a single pendant version as well. Their lower price tag does mean there are limited finish options available, but we’ve provided you with two of the most widely used choices – Rubbed Bronze and Chome. If you’re searching for something other than those, we also offer the Brevard and Volusia schoolhouse designs that are available for those who prefer to make their light totally unique!
