Schoolhouse style lighting refers to a specific type of ceiling fixture that re-creates the look of lighting used in public buildings and schoolhouses in the early to mid-20th century. They most commonly refer to lighting with the distinctive "orb" glass.
Designers have been re-discovering these of late, as their styling blends well with both period and contemporary decorating. They look great in kitchen spaces or anywhere you need a clean, streamlined look.
