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 sixteen 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 stumbled upon lights.com while we were searching for a light for our son's nursery. We found exactly what we wanted. The ordering process was easy, the light arrived quickly, and we loved it!!! Unfortunately, it was a little too big for the space we intended it for. After calling and speaking with customer service, they were extremely helpful and accommodating in assisting us in returning the item and suggesting a better light for our space. I highly recommend this company!
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.
I absolutely love this pendant light. Almost every other sputnik light I have come across is at least $500+ and nowhere near this size. Given the price, I couldn't pass up buying it and I am so glad that I did. It is well made, sturdy, and does not look cheap at all. The light came assembled and ready to install for the most part; all I had to do was tighten each individual stem into place and adjust the height from the ceiling. I purchased 12 Vintage Midwood Edison Bulbs as well and the bulbs tied the mid century look together perfectly. Highly recommend this product. Installation was seamless as well.
- Will this work on a sloped ceiling?
- How much does this light fixture weigh?
- Does the chandelier require assembly or arrive fully assembled? Thanks!

- How dark is the aged brass color? The color swatch is a lovely dark gold color but in the "in room" photo, the color appears much darker. Please confirm which is more accurate. Thanks so much! t.
- The measurements of the fixture show 16x16x16. Does this include bulbs installed? Or, is that side to side, socket to socket?
- Is the height of the 18-Light Sputnik, Aged Brass adjustable? I would be putting it above a dining table. I'm wondering if there is any flexibility with the sizing, but I do understand that it has a removable pole.
- 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 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?
- I see the stem is 20 inches long. How far from the center ball does the longest arm extend down? Can that center stem be cut shorter if need be?
- 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
