Chris and Andee sent in an email: I just rescued these large lamps from my father-in-law's house. I am looking for ideas to make them work in my house. I would say our style is somewhere between Pottery Barn and Anthropologie. Not formal, but relaxed and full of restored, rescued treasures. However, I am struggling to picture these lamps with a little bit of funk....

Should I try to work with these huge shades or start fresh? My favorite feature is the candlestick bulbs in the base which can function as a night light. Thanks for any suggestions!

Got any ideas? Please share them with Chris and Andee below...
