Call it net gains: Mesh and bamboo fish traps—and weavings inspired by them—make sculptural, softly glowing pendant lights. And you can create your own. Above: A vintage fishing basket repurposed as a dramatic light in the Kamakura, Japan, home of antiques dealer Hitoshi Uchida. Replicate the look with a mesh fishing basket from Etsy and a Rejuvenation  Burnside Light  or use parts from the Color Cord Company . Photograph via  The Selby . Above: Barcelona design duo Manolito & Manolita weave their  Colimbo Lights  from mesh fishing traps and cotton. Learn more in our post Go Fish Lighting , and inquire directly with M&M about pricing. Above: A souvenir from Culburra House, a beachside rental in New South Wales, Australia, the Fish Trap Light Shade is for sale in two sizes: $135 AUD ($104.67 USD) for the small, and $700 AUD ($542.73 USD) for the large, shown. (For lights similar in feel, see Nelson Sepulveda's designs at Home Stories in Brooklyn.) Above: From a recent  Bodie and Fou  collection, the Long Bamboo Pendant Light was inspired by Thai fish traps; we hope they reintroduce it.  Above: The made-to-order Fisherman Lampshade , $1,500, by artist Tracy Wiklinson of TW Workshop can be any length.
