Make these lamps less hideous?

A few years ago, I lost my mind and bought three Twisted Seven Floor Lamps for my loft. This was neither sane nor rational behavior, and I have no idea what came over me, but the deed is done.

Rather than tossing them out on their twisted ears, I want to try to make them less hideous. I think a big part of the problem is that the proportions are all wrong-- the light heads should be bigger, and the trunk should either be wider or shorter.

Maybe if I wrapped some sort of shade around the heads? Wire mesh, maybe? I have no clue.
