While having a pool in your back yard is indeed a blessing, having a pool house to go with it is the icing on the cake! This homeowner not only has a pool house, but one designed by our friends at John Malick & Associates who created this gorgeous Victorian space chock full of classic touches. And while we love the abundance of bright white beadboard that covers the cabinets, walls, and ceiling, that turquoise stove definitely captures your eye. And the schoolhouse pendants have the clean lines and classic flair that is just right for this kitchen.
These pendants are much like our Early Electric Schoolhouse Pendant, a beautiful reproduction of the classic lights that were popular in the 1920s when opaque shades first came into use. These shades, first found in courthouses, libraries, and schools, provide warm light with their soft illumination. The clean lines and classic flair of these pendants add a graceful touch and timeless appeal to this kitchen.
The Early Electric Schoolhouse Pendant comes in four shade sizes from 12″ to 18″ and you can choose from a half dozen different stem lengths to suit your space. More than 20 finish colors are available so you can choose something traditional like Black or Galvanized or perhaps something a bit bolder to give a more modern look to this fixture. Standard incandescent bulbs are available or choose an energy-saving CFL bulb.
If you love the styling of these early 20th century fixtures but are working with a lower ceiling, consider the Old Time Schoolhouse Pendant which gives you the same look in a flush mount fixture. Loaded with utilitarian charm, this American made light is perfect for low ceilings, closets, or other tight spaces. Choose from four shade sizes and a variety of finish colors to create your own classic light!
