Thursday Treasure Interior Design Lighting

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.

A glass sputnik from the 1960s.  It has the mid-century vibe but doesn’t scream space because of the glass.  I love its sparkle.

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!
