It's a given: at some point in your life, you will live in a rental with a hideous light fixture that makes you weep. Here are five ideas for camouflaging unsightly light fixtures (bonus points if you're sewing-machine literate). Above: The Lampade Bigger by Vicenza-based Orietta Marcon of Oggetti can be replicated by a determined DIYer; for instructions, go to DIY: Rustic Linen Lampshade . See more of her work at Designer Visit: Civico Quattro in Vicenze . Above: In a West Village duplex, MR Architecture + Decor created a three-tiered canvas ceiling fixture. Above: The Koushi lamp is equally at home in modern or traditional settings; photo via Mark Eden Schooley . Remodelista Alexa created a DIY version; see her instructions at DIY: Koushi Lamp . Above: Take inspiration from Casamidy's Delphine light fixture and whip up a canvas version of your own.
