A Forrest Gump of schoolhouse lighting fixtures, this example embodies "simple is as simple does" – just the basics here, with no frills and no surprises (though the chain loop at the canopy is just a little on the quirky side).

The pendant or semi-flush lights often called "schoolhouse fixtures" are defined by their large white (or "opal") diffusing glass shades and simple designs. These fixtures first rose to popularity around 1920 and were common well into the 1950s. They were certainly found in schoolhouses, but were also installed in pretty much any commercial or institutional setting where high levels of illumination were desired at low cost. From plain and super-simple to dressed up with flourishes and decorated glass, there is a schoolhouse fixture for most any setting.
