"Like New Orleans, Bevolo Gas and Electric Lights is steeped in history and tradition." Adore's 2019 feature on the iconic New Orleans business still rings true, especially as Bevolo celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. Founded in 1945, Bevolo has continued to deliver its old-world craftsmanship in traditional and antique fixtures found in New Orleans and across the world. Each lantern is handmade locally!
"Although we are constantly evolving and developing to stay on trend, we believe that classic design and quality products never go out of style."
In honor of the big anniversary, all lanterns from this point forward will bear their craftsman's Maker's Mark, alongside a serial number and Bevolo tag. The addition of the mark adds another layer of identifying the craftsman, and is one of the earliest forms of trademarking.
Bevolo is also encouraging clients, visitors, and more to share their favorites stories with the brand. "Whether it be receiving your first Bevolo lantern, a great experience with a Lighting Designer, assistance with refurbishing old Bevolo lanterns, or encountering our French Quarter showrooms on a visit to New Orleans, we would love to hear from you! Email us and you could see your story featured on our social media and blog!"
If quarantine has propelled a home project forward or you're simply looking to update your light fixtures, Bevolo is here to help. During this period of social distancing, Bevolo's production team has altered their schedule and working conditions. Appointments are recommended for showroom visits. Their Complimentary Design Service, where the Lighting Designers can assist clients on projects by phone, email, or online chat, is also available.
Bevolo is located at 521 Conti Street, New Orleans, LA 70130.
