Luna Bella | NOVA of California

As one of the most eye-catching industrial style desk lamps we came across while curating this list, we had to put the Luna Bella Desk Lamp from NOVA of California right at the top. Looking more like a sculpture than a desk lamp, the black steel shade and hand-applied gold leaf finish really capture the spirit of industrial style desk lamps that was required to be considered in our ultimate guide.

To envoke the industrial style we were looking for in our desk lamp list, NOVA of California constructed the Luna Bella in a mid-century modern design that mirrors the styling they created back in the 1960s. All parts of the Luna Bella combine to form a glamorous and sculpted silhoutte, even the bulb! The bulb has a noticeable silver tip smack dab in the middle of the gold leaf finish to add to the styling, and it is dimmable as well to achieve different moods.

They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, so we’ll just let this one do that talking. Kidding, we’ll be happy to add some background, but if you think the Gio Desk Lamp just looks cool, wait until you hear about the production process.
