Bevolo Lighting: A New Orleans Design Staple
As we continue our journey through the world of New Orleans exploring the best the city has to offer from food, culture, and of course design we could not continue without introducing you to Bevolo.
If you are hoping to add a little southern charm to your home then look no further. Bevolo Copper Gas and Electric Lighting creates timeless looks with unbeatable quality. Located in the heart of the French Quarter, Bevolo is the pride and joy of New Orleans design and craftsmanship.
Founded in 1945 in the same showroom you can visit today, Andrew Bevolo Sr. began Bevolo with ideals of craftsmanship that have carried through to the empire Bevolo has grown to today. In the small museum in the back of their French Quarter showroom one can visit with workers who still, after 70 years, hand craft current orders. At Bevolo the production line is not at a large factory out of sight but instead it’s craftsmen right there who are proud of their trade and want to share their labor of love with you.
In addition to impeccable craft, Bevolo offers inspiring designs. After 70 years their lanterns still illuminate the French Quarter and surrounding streets in New Orleans with the romantic flicker of the past that only gas lamps could provide. They offer a vast range of lighting collections from commercial-sized outdoor street lamps to indoor island pendants. No matter the style, Bevolo has the perfect light to finish the space.
With timeless design it is no surprise that Bevolo’s best selling product comes from its roots. The original French Quarter Bracket Lantern, that one that started it all, is still their number one seller. Offering beautifully aged copper in a variety of sizes, the French Quarter lantern is a versatile staple that blends well with any architectural style.
“The Governor” brings old world charm to any home. Inspired by traditional colonial homes the elongated frame addresses vertical elements well making it a great framing element around columns and entryways. Here (above) we love the warmth brought to the space framed by a beautiful archway.
While the lamps are striking any time of day it is a night where they truly shine, quite literally. The flicker of the gas allows the copper to come to life dancing across the facade drawing attention to fine design. Here we love the contrast of the clean white painted brick with the warm glow of the lighting inviting you in.
Bevolo proves to be just as striking on the inside of your home! These French Quarter pendents with round yokes brings just right amount of old world charm into this sleek new kitchen. The combination of the back lit cabinetry and bold island fixtures creates a great ambiance.
No matter the size, shape, or style Bevolo has the perfect light to match your needs that brings quality, taste, and a little bit of NOLA love into your home.
