Can't Get Enough: Sputniks!








I'm completely obsessed with Sputniks!  Retro cool and forward thinking all at once...like any great outer space design should be.  These fabulous fixtures seem to elevate every decor style into the next stratosphere.   I need to figure out where to incorporate one of these in my home.

  16. I like how the fixture is incorporated into a more traditional room in the first image. It's definitely more my taste!

  18. I don't think there is one that is short is fantastic. It's drama and whimsy all in one package!

  19. Love, love, love these!
    When I was initially doing up Villa Nero, these were high on my list.
    Then somehow, I didn't get around to getting one, and now I think back on them fondly -- hope you're planning on popping one up somewhere at your place.
    Hello kid room chic ;)

  22. It definitely brightens up a room!

  23. I love them too- I want to try the Lindsay Adelman DIY sputnik like light- looks alot like the first one but more random in shape. I love how Sputniks are gold and glamorous but still a bit rough- not too pretty. Definitely on my wish list.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great eye! My husband the astronomy major would love this!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love these happy little sparkly lights! I always think of Kelly Wearstler when I see one....now i'll think of YOU!

  36. I adore this whole "Can't Get Enough" riff you've been doing! I might be obsessed with it actually. The sputniks post is brilliant. So yesterday, so now. The Jan-Feb New England Home Connecticut has a to-die-for dining room with a vertical sputnik chandelier (and fushia Kravat-covered chairs) that you'll love!

  37. Haha, these are adorable -- I love it.
