We’re always on the lookout for well-designed table lamps, and particularly during these dark weeks of winter. Here’s a trio of half-moon lamps, all with dome shades and curved arms (in chrome, brass, and steel), at three different price points. 



Above: Designed by Christian Dell, a metalwork teacher at the Bauhaus, the Kaiser Idell Luxus Table Lamp was first commercially produced by Gebrüder Kaiser & Co. in 1931. In 2011, Fritz Hansen brought the classic lamp back into production. Made in Denmark, it features a patented swivel joint that adjusts the angle of the light and is now available in five colors; $863 from DWR



Above: The Shelter Table Lamp from Danish company BoConcept has a brass arm and black metal shade and base; $299. 

Above: West Elm’s Half Moon Desk Lamp has a plated metal shade and arm in an antique bronze finish, and a white marble base; it’s currently on sale for $89.97 (marked down from $179).
