Bella Luce are London based and makers of handmade urban style retro lighting, tea light holders and organic candles.
We like to keep things small and make a few products at a time, this enables us to take special care and attention when making either our lamps, candles and tea light holders for you to enjoy.
Urban Style Lighting
Our urban style retro table lamps and wall lights are all handmade and inspired by twentieth-century classic Italian and European industrial design.
This bygone era of industrial design, notably from the 1930’s to the 1960’s had been when lighting was robust and made to perform a function, lighting had an air of simplicity to it and were made to definitely last.
Our signature design is using UK sourced hardwoods – ash, black walnut, oak and mahogany for our lamp bases with a sharp square clean edges.
We have created and use our own unique wax polish by mixing beeswax and olive oil together. This type of wax polish dates back to the middle-ages. Every piece of wood is hand finished and polished.
We also use make lighting with galvanised industrial tubing with solid brass, metal and chrome fittings.
Quality and safety is very important to us, our electrical supplies are sourced in the UK and meet with both UK and Europeans safety (CE mark) standards.
Before each lamp is sold, it has to pass a portable appliance test (PAT) by a qualified electrician and be certified safe to use and comply to selling electrical products in the UK and Europe.
We make beautiful handcrafted tea light holders made using quality hardwoods – ash, black walnut, oak and mahogany.
Each piece is individual and classic in style incorporating sharp clean edges.
We use solid polished copper, brass, checker plate and stainless steel for inserts.
By experimenting and using different materials together, each piece becomes interesting and distinctive.
By using either copper, brass or general metal fittings normally used in industry we tend to try and retain their original patina and look.
We make beautiful handmade crafted candles, that have a rustic charm and are made using superior quality natural and certified organic ingredients. Our candles are non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
The beeswax is high quality, unbleached, unrefined organic yellow beeswax and comes from the western (European) honey bee called Apis Mellifera.
The coconut oil is sustainable and extracted from the finest organically grown coconuts and cold pressed to preserve its superb qualities and purity.
The olive oil is unfiltered virgin olive oil. It is first press, the olive oil is cloudy soon after crushing and before final filtration and is more natural and less processed.
