Sputnik Chandeliers

To start with, I have to admit that I'm not really all that into the whole retro thing, but I am over the moon for these mid-century Sputnik light fixtures. They are popping up all over the place and I have found them anywhere from $150 to $35,000 (Yes, three zeros!) What do you think... lasting style or here today, gone tomorrow?

(This is the beauty with the $35,000 price tag... swoon!)


  1. Here today ... gone tomorrow. But the one from Paloma 81 looks like the death star blowing up at the end of Star Wars - pretty cool. Yuri Gagarin would be proud of the moniker too! Oh great ... now I've got the old Soviet national anthem stuck in my mind. Thanks a lot! -KDM

  2. I love the first picture and the kate spade picture. I think this is more a trend than here to stay. But, then again, what do I know??
