I always enjoyed going to school and learning about new and exciting things. One of my inspirations that made me really start getting into lights, were the schoolhouse lighting fixtures that hung in my classroom. I consistently would find myself staring at them and I can remember being really fascinated by those schoolhouse light pendants.
Just a few years ago I landed a job installing lights at a school not too far from where I attended. I was also in charge of working with the designer to find some nice lights that would really fit in well. After quite some time spent browsing around trying to find some good lights I remembered the schoolhouse lights that were installed at my own school.
I went back to my old school and wanted to see if those lighting fixtures we’re still in there so I could remember what they looked like. Sure enough, they were still hanging there after all these years, and also still looked fantastic. I took some pictures of them and started doing some research to find some similar looking lights, and found on the internet.
They had all different kinds of these exact style lights, available in gooseneck, cord hung, and stem mounted options. I went with the stem mount since these would be hanging from the ceiling and was anticipating their arrival.
When they arrived, I showed the designer I was working with and she loved them also, and after we installed them, everybody else thought they were great as well.
