One of my personal favorites is this assortment of chinese lantern covers.
Notice the tops on these beauties. Those sure look like old movie reels to me.
Got skylights that are too bright? Knit a shade!
Why stop with the shade? Keep knitting to cover the cord, too.
Small, quick and chic.
Cover a boring pleated plastic shade with sweetness.
Knitted with electrical cord.
Not a personal favorite, but …
… it sure looks neat lit up, doesn't it?
Is that chicken wire? I think it is. More vintage styles below, some with patterns.
Not real fond of the shape, but love the idea of Irish crochet.
Crochet a cover in filet and shells.
A bit over the top, but great inspiration.
Notice the fringe.
Single crochet then attach.
The medallions at the bottom with beads caught my eye on this one.
A gallon of starch, I'm sure.
Starch, too, can be gorgeous.
Rip the stained satin off your grandmother's shade and replace with crochet.
Steel rings, crochet and a tassel! Love it.
More steel rings.
Dangling beads make this one special.
Love number S-480. It's in my queue of projects.
Simple, shiny knits.
Saw these in a shop. $200+ EACH!
Here's one in action.
Last but not least, vintage shades in all shapes and sizes.
