I would start by selecting the lampshade with the Selection Brush. Duplicate that to a new layer and then use either the Mesh Warp Tool or its cousin the Perspective Tool on that lampshade. Stretch warp until the edges look good to you. You'll now need to work on the underlying image instead of the straightened version and using the Clone/Stamp Tool rid of any of the (original) lampshade showing by cloning the stone work to cover it up.

Bit finicky but can be done.

Work on a copy of the original, and duplicate layers.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

I had a go using the Liquify persona...

Here’s another technique using the Mesh Warp Tool.
Note that you will probably need to take more time over it to get things looking better than I did but it’s a simple process.
Once you have straightened the top you can merge the warped layer into the background and straighten the side in a similar way.

@carl123 The reflections on the right-hand lamp shade in your version are the wrong way round. A tiny quibble but worth noting.

Another approach is to select / cut the lampshade, clone a bit of stonework into the edges of the resulting "hole" and then paste / straighten the lampshade back in.
