Sputnik house / Donald Stotler

This 1957 home in Houston, Texas makes a statement from the street thanks to a peaked overhanging roof at the entryway, pink Roman brick, and Cypress trim. Dangling from the large wooden beam on the patio is a Sputnik lamp, the perfect accent to the teal front door and its gleaming chinoiserie plate. The captivating light fixture is an original feature of the house, designed by builder Donald Stotler. Stotler was so enthralled with the launch of the Sputnik space launch — which was also in 1957 — that he commissioned a Sputnik light fixture, earning the home the nickname the Sputnik house — via Curbed
