Do you love sputnik lights but don’t have the room for the classic, a big pendant chandelier? Good news: Practical Props has just introduced a Sputnik ceiling light — they call it the “Starlight” — and it drops just 4″ from the ceiling. I could definitely see this wee sputnik fitting nicely in hallways, mudrooms, small bathrooms — even small bedrooms. And, the price is terrific — just $79, including the bulbs.

And howdy hudee: Come back tomorrow, because Practical Props will be hosting a giveaway!

    Love this store! I stop in here to look at their cool vintage lighting, they’re sales people are very nice too! Small independent shop packed with amazing lights!

    I was thinking of using the 20″ or 24″ sconce as a ceiling light but I wonder if it’s not recommended if they’ve come out with this new light as a specific cieling light. I don’t think this one would be big enough/give off enough light for my whole kitchen. I guess I could contact them and ask if those could be used as ceiling lights.



      1. Brooke says:

        Thanks Sherree! I bet the 3 look spectacular 🙂 I only have 1 ceiling light location in the kitchen though, do you think 1 would be bright enough? Could I bother you for a picture? I can leave an email address for you if you don’t have any way to link a photo

    Lovely! And I was thinking how good the light would be in one of those modest ranches (like mine) with ceilings that are just under 8 feet high. My 6 foot plus brother bumps into any pendant light or fan that is not positioned over a bed or table.

    Very nice, one of these days I will order a regular one for the dining room. Always interested in their products and I believe in supporting small businesses.

  5. Carolyn says:

    I only did a one-query search on your site and then the ‘net and found only one article of history/background on Sputnik lights. Can you give a little story or link about how they came about, when-ish ( I know 1957 was when Sputnik was launched but when were the light fixtures launched?), any ads…?

  6. Judy H. says:

    These sputnik flush mounts are the best! I’ve got 2 rooms where I’d love to put one. Now that I’ve seen them, I’ll probably HAVE to, they will be stuck in my mind forever!

    Fly Me to the Moon and Let Me Play Among the Sputnik Ceiling Lights! Yes, please, I’d like to win one of those beauties!
