Sputnik Inspired Lighting

A reader recently requested a guide to lighting — specifically, a guide to mixing lighting throughout a home so that it all works together. I started to put together one of my “Let’s” posts, but there were so many styles that I wanted to get to and I couldn’t fit them all in without it getting crazy! So I’ve decided to split the post into a miniseries of lighting roundups, and I’ll show how to mix and match them at the end.

First up are the Sputnik inspired chandeliers. The fifth one here isn’t a perfect fit with the others, but it’s so amazing that I had to include it anyway (and I think it’s at home with the rest).

  1. Modern Amber Bubble Chandelier, $565

  2. Small Sputnik Chandelier, $259

  3. Satellite Chandelier, $1325

  4. Sputnik Chandelier, $359

  5. Modo Chandelier (3-Sided), $3800

    One of the first things that I did when I moved into the cottage was to change out all of the major pendants. It was a little too bland/potterybarn-ish before. And the pride of place in the kitchen is the sputnik! It’s a great, great look for any room…

    Love the Modo Chandelier, but, alas, at $3800, my budget cannot afford it. So sad.

    Now this is what I call dramtic lighting! #5, I saw them make a copycat of on HGTV.

    We bought a version of #2 for our living room, when we first moved into our home. Nearly 8 years down the road my taste has changed a bit…I’d now prefer #3, thank you. But with the price difference, guess I’ll be hanging on to my little sputnik for a while longer!

    Great selections! I’ve had my eye on this one: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Sputnic-Chrome-Chandelier-Atom-Light-Fixture/4274409/product.html for a while but its out of stock right now… good price though!

    How much light does a Sputnik provide? I’d love one for over my game table, but am concerned that it won’t provide enough illumination.

    This isn’t normally my style but I love, love, love, love (x infinity) the first one.

    Those are some fantastic finds! The Satellite Chandelier would look amazing in my dinning room with the dark cherry wood furniture. Thanks for sharing!

    I really need some new lights to spruce up my house… It really just makes the difference.

    We put this one in our dining room 2.5 years ago and still love it. I have it on a dimmer.
