We'll admit that just a few years back, we'd have told you we weren't that into sputnik chandeliers. We found them a bit too weird, a bit too polarizing, a bit too modern for our taste. We can't pinpoint exactly where our opinions switched over, but somewhere down the line, we realized we didn't hate sputniks, not even a little bit, not at all. In fact, we quite liked them, and how they could easily fit in just about any room. They could make a traditional space feel edgy. They could make a modern space feel more traditional. Sputniks can be glamorous and girly, or cool and masculine. They can play off just about any design style you can think of, and still look great. They're a statement piece, to be sure, but one that's worth investing in. At least, that's our take on it. But we'd like to think the shots below serve as further evidence to back up our case.
Tell us: are you a fan of the sputnik? Would you put one in your home?
