Sputnik Chandeliers – love them, love them, love them!
Between this week’s lighting kick and the sweet memory of five rides on Space Mountain with my daring (5 year old) daughter just a few weeks ago in Disney, it just seems fitting to post photos of Sputnik Chandeliers. These are all from the Irwin Feld Design Gallery in nearby Stamford, CT. I sent a quick tweet to Marcy @irwinfelddesign and she suggested the following headline!
Guided by the universe: Sputnik Chandeliers are a favorite in the gallery
1950s – Space Age Reminds me of something right out of the Jetsons. I tend to prefer silver finishes to brass, but on this fixture the contrast works.
Space age meets space monster in this multi-armed Sputnik from 1960.
Love this Italian Sputnik because I have never seen one like it before. Not in the typical brass, but in that bright shining chrome – right up my alley!
