Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Made Bought the red ones for the Christmas season, but they're so lovely, have decided to leave them up. Just be sure to measure the shade height so that they cover the type of bulb you want to use. Our's are the narrow candlelight bulbs (with the smaller than standard screw in base; they're about 4" tall and 1 1/4' wide)) and at first I wasn't sure the shade height would be tall enough to completely camouflage the bulb but they worked out perfectly once assembled. The interior wire just slips over the bulb and it's easy to adjust and level the shade. Very happy with the quality of the fabric and the workmanship with the use of a good weight silk and all the edges crisp and tidy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dupioni Silk Chandelier Shades in Gold After much deliberation I finally purchased these shades and am very happy I did! I took into account other's comments and reviews on this product to arrive at my decision. The 6 shades I purchased totally updated the look of my chandelier that had black shades on for a number of years. These new shades allow more light into my dining room and give it a fresh and updated look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fabric, fit, and style Bought these in gold for dining room, and they look lovely and are just right. Also bought a larger size in same silk fabric, style and color for some living room sconces, and am really pleased with these as well. These beautiful chandelier shades really dressed up my dining room lighting and living room sconces on either side of the fireplace. The gold and silk fabric were so much more elegant than the white ones I had previously used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide range of colors; beautiful fabric; excellent workmanship Struggling to find a chandelier shade that would survive the holiday season decor, I went with the Dupioni Silk Chandelier Shade for its classic shape and classic color (gold). The gold is soft and glowing adding to the candlelight effect and warmth so needed in the doldrums of January. These shades are made from quality silk and the workmanship is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice change and practical, too Ten years ago, I bought these same chandelier shades in a deep red; they are still in perfect condition but I wanted to brighten my space so replaced them with white shades. The new shades are every bit as well made as the originals, allow much more light to filter through (can use the dimmer on the chandelier and save $$$$), and are just as fashionable as the red was ten years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely color and fabric I am very happy with my Dupioni Silk Chandelier Shades! They have just the right affect in softening the light from the chandelier bulbs, but still giving off enough light. I have hung my chandelier in our newly re-modeled kitchen and it is really lovely!
Date published: 2015-01-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just perfect! I was concerned about how much light would come through the shades. They are not opaque. There is definitely some light you can see through the shades which lightens the actual color of the shade. So what you see online, not lit, will be lighter when lit. The silk is beautiful and definitely worth the extra $$. I had considered the linen a lot, but am really glad I got the silk for my minimally formal dining room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, Beautiful and Appropriate for the Chandelier These chandelier shades are beautifully made and look perfect on our Talia 6-arm chandelier. I considered several other choices but I'm glad I went with this one. They are "just right."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect finishing touch I bought these to add to an antique chandelier from Spain that my mother had given me - they are the perfect finishing touch and completed the look in our dining room I had in mind
Date published: 2014-10-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich color and texture I now own these Dupioni silk shades in red (for the Talia chandelier over the dining room table) and ivory (for the Talia chandelier over the kitchen table). These are reliable shades which add a dimension of charm, quality and sophistication to our decor. The red shades are a deep shade of red (almost burgundy) which mutes the light bulb creating a soft light. So plan to install a dimmer switch so that you can control how much light you desire. The ivory shades allow the light to come through more brilliantly which works well in the kitchen. All items arrived in perfect condition and in a timely manner.
