A light fixture or decorative accessory can hit a tipping point in popularity when you start to see it everywhere. If that piece was vintage, it can be hard to get your hands on one. That is where reproductions come in.  The upside is, the redesign can mean the scale has been changed, or the piece just works better in its newest incarnation. This sought-after piece, the Sputnik Chandelier, is a silhouette first came on the scene in the 1950's and 60's, and it has risen in popularity recently.  Known for its spiky, sun ray arms, it adds an interesting shape with its linear yet airy form.  This repro version from Arteriors, the Zanadoo, has become wildly popular with the vintage brass finish. It has the right amount of arms, and a great scale. It was such a hit they recently added to the Zanadoo family, creating a larger chandler and a flush sconce, and they can now be used outside. I think the sconces would add just the right amount of glamour to a powder room.
