A Different Kind of Lamp Work

If you've followed me for awhile, you know that I have a "thing" for lighting.  I'm not sure why, but perhaps growing up and wearing big glasses, (thank you science for Lasik!) and needing plenty of light t see.

Well, I saw these two lamps on an antique newsletter that I receive and wanted to chat design for a minute.  I want to know whether you agree that they need a different lampshade, and if so, what would you do differently?

I think I'm kind of partial to the dark gray one in the lower right corner of this photo.  And I think I like the one below a bit better too.  

What do you think?  What would you do to make it look more modern?  I know there are a lot of artists out there who could do wonderful things to complement this style.
