About this Product
This quintessential, radial fixture is our homage to the late, great Gino Sarfatti, Italian designer and pioneer of the mid-century modern movement. The Sputnik is the embodiment of Sarfatti’s design principles as they apply to lighting - practical, yet beautiful and always multi-directional. Ours features twelve slender arms radiating from a central orb in a lustrous, chrome finish. For a statement centerpiece, suspend over a dining table or the center of a living room to add dimension, texture, and a little bit of history to your home.

We installed this in our foyer and it just change the whole ambiance. I canвЂ™t comment on the installation process since I didnвЂ™t do it myself. We got the Edison lightbulbs together and it does light up very well without being overbearing. ItвЂ™s the practically the center of conversations whenever someone comes to our place. Well worth it!
I received this item, as my very first order from lights.com. The quality and construction are amazing. It is the perfect size for my 10x12 room, especially since I used the Edison-style tube bulbs. I would gladly order from here again. The color is as shown, as well.
The Sputnik lamp looks great from a distance. Up close, you can see some blemishes in the metal. I hung this above a stairway and you can't really get close enough to see the flaws, so it works for me even though it might not work for everybody. I'm a little disappointed in the Williamsburg bulbs. The glass on some of them turned brownish after first use. Now I have some bulbs that are clear and some that are noticeably brownish. I wish they all matched.
I love this light! It was everything I wanted, and then some! The ordering process was easy, and the item shipped right away. Prior to my purchase I had a chat session with one of the reps, as I was a bit confused by the dimensions of this light and rod lengths, because the description had one thing and the Q&A section had another. The information I was told (2-10.25" rods) was incorrect. It in fact comes with 4 (like the description states), in various length, which turned out to be better for us. Also the instructions are worthless, but husband and I did not have trouble installing it ourselves. Overall, very satisfied - can't beat the price as well.
- Any chance I can turn the Sputnik into a plug-in? I live in a loft and have the perfect place to hang it, but I don't have the ceiling mounts/wiring. Please let me know!
- How can I mount this to a sloped ceiling?The Sputnik 12-Light Chandelier comes with a sloped ceiling adapter already installed into the included canopy. That adapter works with most ceilings, but if you want to be sure that it will work with your specific ceiling, we recommend sending the angle measurements to CS@lights.com and we'll check to be sure.
- The minimum height listed under specs, is that measuring where the whole chandelier will end once hung, or is that measuring where the hanging pole ends and the chandelier begins? We have a tight space for this fixture! Thanks for your time!
- What is the shortest length this light could be hung?
- Is this fixture dimmable? Thank you!
- I dont want this light hanging low? How low does it hang and also can that be adjusted?
- Do you have a install manual for LC003026 - got one off Amazon from you but the installation instructions were missing. 12-Light Sputnik Pendant in Chrome, Small
- Hi there - I would like to order this fixture for a bedroom (12'x11') - would the small size suffice?
- Hi, I love the lamp, do you offer any industry discounts?
- Purchased from amazon; have yet to install it... Does this have any sort of warranty? thanks!
- What is the minimum amount of hanging space required for the small and medium size 12-light sputnik pendant from the ceiling base to the bottom of lowest hanging bulb? I live in a small Manhattan apartment with 8 1/2 feet floor to ceiling height. I think I only have about 22"-24" of appropriate hanging space for a pendant light. Can you please advise? Thank you!
- Is the stem (20.5") adjustable?
- Hi, I was interested in ordering this light and talked to a service rep last week about it. I was contemplating on ordering it then or in a few weeks - when it would be closer to it's ship date. He assured me that I could order it anytime and the price nor the ship date would change. It is now 25 dollars more. Why is this? Will it be going back down? I was interested in ordering it at $135... not $160.
- Hi, I would like to get this light for my son's bedroom the ceilings are 9 feet but he has a bunk bed. Is there anyway to get a shorter hanging rod so the light doesn't get as low? Thanks in advance. Maria Bleier
- I will be ordering one of these Sputnik lights for my entrance in a modern home we are building. Which size do you think would be most suitable? The ceiling will be 11-12 ft high in the entrance and 9ft throughout the rest of the house.
- Is there a prop 65 warning on this product?
- Hello - I understand the rod is not adjustable, however, can it be professionally cut down? Thank you -
- Ok to use in a bathroom?
- Can I use dimmable bulbs with this light fixture? What about dimmable LED bulbs?The 18-Light Sputnik is dimmable itself and works great with both incandescent and dimmable LED bulbs. Not all dimmers work with all dimmable bulbs, so we've provided a list of dimmers that we have tested to be sure they work with our dimmable LED bulbs.
