Want to bring back a style that's as charming, exquisite and effective as it was a century ago? Add overhead schoolhouse lighting to your ceiling. Schoolhouse lights are a division of industrial lighting that was created in the 1920s. The symmetrical glass shades distribute ambient light evenly throughout a room so the entire space is well-light. This lighting was popular in libraries and courthouses as well as schools, and today, they help homeowners go retro without sacrificing visibility. Use a schoolhouse ceiling light for your kitchen, dining room, living room or entryway to combine style and functionality in a complete package.
Find lights in all shapes and sizes by shopping at Destination Lighting. Schoolhouse flush mount and semi-flush mount lights are ideal for modern homes with low ceilings while schoolhouse pendant lights, mini-pendants and island lights hang from overhead with grace. There are even schoolhouse chandeliers that add elegance to a vintage look. Get your schoolhouse lights with a clear glass or white shade and finishes such as brass, gold, bronze, chrome and satin nickel. A true schoolhouse fixture has a tapered globe shade with a flared top and pointed bottom. However, there are many other modern interpretations, including cones, bowls and domes that maintain the schoolhouse aesthetic.
The curved profiles, simple fittings and instantly recognizable look make schoolhouse lighting a welcoming addition to any room. Use them to illuminate kitchen islands, narrow hallways, dining tables, bathroom sinks and much more. Do so with energy-efficient LED schoolhouse lights if you want to save money with less maintenance.
