Why choose a Sputnik chandelier?

Sputnik chandeliers represent peak mid-century modern style. They are the epitome of style in the eyes of any design lover. The “look” has been attributed to many different leading mid-century designers, and first took hold between the 1940s and 1960s, when people were obsessed with all things intergalactic. In fact, the style and name of the style were both inspired by the first artificial satellite sent from Earth. The starburst look of these pieces is a staple of the Sputnik light design, creating a real statement in any living space.

Not only does the design offer an unrivalled sense of futuristic chic, but the sheer number of bulbs ensures that any space is lit effectively, making it a practical investment as well as an attractive one.

Incorporating a Sputnik chandelier in the home

For a vintage look, mid-century metallic handmade chandeliers are often your best bet. The mostly iron-and-brass Sputnik design is as other-worldly as its namesake. The high-quality chandelier highlights antique and dark metal finishes and an intense, burst-like appearance. For a modern design and look, you may wish to consider glossy silk nickel or chrome finishes. Bronze finishes are more regularly found in transitional installations, which consolidate design aspects of both conventional and contemporary styles. Remember that your chandelier's materials and finish ought to supplement different finishes in your chosen space – be it a living room, dining area or kitchen space. While the metal-work of the Sputnik chandelier makes it compatible with industrial designs, it is obviously best suited to those 60s and 70s retro vibe rooms. Given the futuristic nature of many Sputnik designs, don’t discount an ultra modern kitchen or dining room, however, as this type of Chandelier can also work really well here, too.
