If you’re looking for the latest in lighting trends, look no further. Wagon wheel and sputnik chandeliers have us inspired and craving a dining room refresh asap. Read on for a look at these styles and how you can incorporate them into your home.
Wagon Wheel Chandeliers
When it comes to wagon wheel chandeliers, the name says it all. These single-tiered, round light fixtures are particularly popular in dining rooms given their width and symmetry to round tables. Traditional wagon wheel chandeliers lean rustic in style – distressed wood, rope, candelabra bulbs – but industrial styles featuring metal and caged bulbs are popular, too.
Mix it up: While rustic in style, don’t hesitate to mix with transitional or coastal décor.
Unlike wagon wheel styles, sputnik chandeliers are often asymmetrical in design. Horizontal styles run close to the ceiling (think semi-flush mount) and feature glass globes at the end of each stem. This look is popular in dining rooms, too, particularly above long tables that seat six or more.
Mix it up: A variety of finishes make this look compatible with styles from farmhouse to glam.
One important tip: Be sure to measure your space and pay close attention to the dimensions of chandeliers (particularly sputnik branch styles). Then install, sit back, and enjoy your glowing new space.
