Mixtures of old and new in this kitchen create the look. The polished wood floors, kitchen amenities and crisp white benches keep the look modern. While the warm cream walls, industrial style stools and station sign add to the vintage theme of the kitchen. The Schoolhouse pendant light completes the vintage modern look. To achieve this look use our Washington Large Schoolhouse Ceiling Pendant Light

 

 

        

Schoolhouse lights and the wood table with its visible bumps and bruises from a lifetime of use bring the vintage; the crisp contemporary storage amenities and contemporary chairs bring the modern. To achieve this look use our Yarra Large Schoolhouse Ceiling Pendant Light

These schoolhouse glass shade pendants are a timeworn classic. Popular in the 1920s these schoolhouse shades are a beautiful reproduction of the classic lights that were mainly found in libraries, schools and courthouses within that era. This kitchen uses them beautifully and teams the theme up well with other vintage elements such as the sign and stools. (images via Houzz and Fat Shack Vintage)
