Dear AT,

I scored an awesome pair of vintage lamps on ebay and now I'm looking for the perfect shades.

The problem is they're rather large: 34" tall with a 15" diameter (47" circumference).

They look 60's or 70's and possibly Hollywood Regency?

So I'm trying to figure out what types of lamp shades would look best with them...

I don't mind a little kitsch, but I also don't want to distract from such lovely lamps with something really tacky.

I was thinking a nice damask design would rock on these, but haven't been able to find anything to my liking online that seems like it will be large enough for my lamps.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! Anne
