Sputnik Light

There has been one light fixture that has always been on my mind.  It takes a unique client to use this chandelier, but it is one of my favorites.

Waldorf-Astoria-Chicago-lobby-reception-entranceIt was modeled after a brooch that Coco Chanel owned.  You can see it in the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in the Magnificent Mile neighborhood of Chicago.  The hotel recently changed names from the Elysian Hotel.  It was designed with Coco Chanel and Christian Dior in mind and based in the 1920’s.  There are a lot of classic black, white and gray tones with hints of color.


Back to the sputnik chandelier.  There are so many different styles designs models that this one category of chandelier come be.  It all depends on the designer.  Here are some that are available to the public.
