For many homebuyers, the first thing on the agenda after the closing papers are signed is to change things up, make the space your own, and put your personal style within the walls. This buyer, however, felt an immediate connection with the original owner and her sense of style. Built in 1935, the home was designed with inspiration from the 1917 Panama California Exposition which featured Mission-Revival architecture. The second owner has kept many of the original touches including all of the original ceiling lighting.
In the kitchen, which underwent some remodeling to capture space from a large butler’s pantry, a 1920s-era schoolhouse shade reigns over the center island where prep work, baking, and cleaning up take place daily. The kitchen features a Shaw’s Original apron sink, subway tile, a schoolhouse clock, and some industrial stools along with the original light fixture. This pendant looks much like our Early Electric School House Pendant, a classic light that first appeared in post offices, government buildings and libraries in the early 20th century. These opaque shades covered up the bare bulb look that had been prevalent in schools as well and cast their soft glow over studious children.
This pendant comes in four shade sizes ranging from 12″ to 18″ and can be finished in one of more than 20 finish colors. Choose a traditional shade like Black or Galvanized to keep an antique look or try something more daring like Red, Navy Blue, or Yellow to shake things up a bit. Six stem mount sizes are available and you can choose a standard bulb or try an energy saving CFL bulb. This American made pendant is rated for damp locations so not only is it great for interior applications like the kitchen or laundry room, but consider it as well for porches, breezeways, or anywhere you’d like a dose of vintage charm.
