Go back to school with this classic lighting for your home! Modern schoolhouse lighting is based on the fixtures that were frequently used in classrooms, libraries, stores and other public or commercial spaces in the first half of the 20th century. These unique lights have now been adapted for residential use and are both a practical and sentimental way to freshen things up. Ideal for any retro or vintage theme, they provide soft, clean, evenly-spread light wherever you hang them. Add them to a kitchen, living room, entryway or home office if you want lighting that looks cool and has a relaxing aura.
Our schoolhouse style lighting comes in both traditional and modern takes on this timeless style. Destination Lighting has ceiling lights, hanging lights, wall lights and lamps that use a variation of the instantly recognizable opaque globe. Chandeliers and multi-light schoolhouse pendants provide ambient lighting for large rooms with a subtler tone than more elaborate fixtures. School-house style task lighting is gaining steam as well. Island lights, floor lamps and mini-pendants are a straightforward but classy way to brighten eating or reading areas. Flush mount lights, semi-flush mount lights, wall sconces and bathroom vanity lights are other ways you can transform a room with their nostalgic charm.
Trusted lighting brands such as Norwell, Quoizel, Vaxcel and Hudson Valley Lighting are just some of the companies whose schoolhouse lights we carry. You can choose between stem-hung, chain-hung or combination fittings that range from simple to ornate. Finishes such as chrome, bronze, satin nickel and brass will enhance the contemporary or historic theme you're going for. You might get a frosted or painted globe as well based on what light you desire. If you're having trouble choosing which one you want, consult our Schoolhouse Lighting Style Guide or email our ALA-certified experts. They'll help you pick a light fixture that fits your budget and adds the right amount of retro flair.
