Sputnik Chandelier History

Are You a Fan of Sputnik Chandeliers?

The first satellite that ever orbited the earth was the Soviet Union's Sputnik satellite, launched in 1957. Soon thereafter the launch inspired the creation of NASA in the United States, which in turn launched an infatuation with all things and objects space-related. Furniture and accents embraced this influence, with iconic pieces, including the Sputnik chandelier, showing that this style has staying power in hip households. From Design Within Reach's Satellite Chandelier (shown here) to the vintage ones you might spy at an antique store, these chandeliers' unique shape have made them a standout piece in homes. If you want to learn more about this fascinating chandelier, check out Houzz's article on Sputnik chandeliers.
