A Sputnik Chandelier for my kitchen

Monday, November 10, 2014
My Sputnik has arrived and 
I could not be more excited to share this new light with all of you! 
Say hello to my Mid Century Round Sputnik Chandelier!
(go ahead and ooh and ahhh, I did)

I have been crushing on these beauties for some time now and one day while searching them online I came across this amazing lighting company called
Sarah is the owner and not only is she super nice but she is a dream to work with! We talked about what I envisioned for my space and she was full of suggestions to help me decide on the perfect sputnik for my kitchen.
Once my decision was made, her shop went straight to work and just this past week this amazing fixture arrived on my doorstep.
I love it so much, I seriously cant stop staring at it! 
I love the design element it brings to the space and I'm so happy that she suggested the raw brass because it is beautiful. 
I have big plans for my kitchen and this light is going to work so perfectly when it all comes together. 
Lucent Light Shop even has their own blog
Its full of awesome advice on the best light bulbs to use and great inspiration photos of vintage lighting. 
When deciding on the light, the only worry I did have was where to hang it exactly. 
My own personal feeling is that with this type of lighting the typical 28-32 inch from the table rule of thumb doesn't necessarily apply. Besides, rules are made to be broken and I had to go with my gut on what was going to be right for me in this case. I researched as many pictures as I could of Sputnik chandeliers and finally decided that this would be the right height for my table. 
Sarah made sure that it was wired with plenty of extra wiring so that we had enough wiggle room to add length if we needed too...she seriously thought of everything!
Even installing it was a piece of cake! 
Brian had it wired and hung (with my help, of course) in about twenty minutes. 
Who doesn't like that! 
I am forever hooked on Lucent Light Shop and the amazing pieces they are creating there! 
This is definitely the place to go if you are considering vintage lighting for your home. 
While we are talking about it you must check out these other favorites of mine that are currently in the shop.....

  3. Thanks for posting so many great pictures of your new sputnik. What height did you decide to hang it? I am trying to decide what height would be best for our 10' ceilings. Thank you!
