What to look for in Sputnik ceiling lights?

Having been inspired by the first artificial satellite sent from Earth and people’s fascination with all things space in the 1950s and 1960s, the Sputnik light has been attributed to many different designers, including Gino Sarfatti. This reflects a growing trend for rational and practical lighting in the mid-century which still retained a sense of glamour and personality. The starburst design of the Sputnik ceiling light offers exactly that, providing plenty of light for any space while also acting as a strong statement piece depending on where one wants to place the lamp, the favourable height can be determined. For a ground Sputnik lamp, it needs to be longer depending on the height of the room as compared to a table/desk lamp which is generally short or average. Wall-mounted Sputnik lamps are great for studying due to their practical design, while a ceiling light is great for decorative purposes, thanks to its space-age flair.

Why should you consider buying Sputnik lamps?

A Sputnik lamp not only works well with an intricately decorated room but also accentuates it as well. Match with a Sputnik chandelier for the ultimate cohesive space. These lamps are outstanding features that come in different designs to cater to different needs. They vary from simple designs to more profound and picturesque lamp designs. If you happen to be a lover of antiquated beauty then you can go with the vintage style of Sputnik lamps primarily made of brass, bronze or with a gold finish. The modern person could consider black Sputnik lights which are the epitome of modernity and make a contemporary space more intriguing. For a different lighting effect, you can choose the uplighter floor lamp where the light is cast upwards giving a warm feel to a room. Sputnik lamps can be used as centrepieces in the dining area, reception or even an event for a mood-lit ambience. For a modern chic look, why not choose monochromatic black-and-white if the preference is something rustic go for wooden Sputnik lamps for that edgy vibe. These lamps come in many appealing shapes and sizes and fit perfectly in a variety of different settings. As a buyer take your time and enjoy choosing the lamp that perfectly complements your home.
