Would love some advice on pairing a sputnik (for my kitchen table) with nearby lighting (mainly island pendants +/- sconces in next room) of an open concept space. I would like to switch out my island pendants but something that is "too-exposed-free-bulb-like" leaves sort of a glaring light in the kitchen. This is the sputnik I purchased and am considering these pendants (also from Resto Hardware). Thank you for any suggestions!

Hey everyone, I have an authentic mid century Sputnik chandelier I inherited. Isn't my style. If anyone is interested please contact me at and we can negotiate a sale.

Great suggestions, Natalie. Thanks for the article.

If you're interested in learning more about the evolution of the Sputnik chandelier, may I recommend our in-depth post on the topic? We've been playing with this iconic style in some our recent collections.
