The lighting company with the soul of New Orleans’s French Quarter in every design celebrates 75 years of craftsmanship in 2020. In honor of the anniversary, each light will include not only Bevolo’s signature brass nameplate and serial number but also the initials of each master maker, reinforcing the company’s commitment to works created by hand. “As the company grew, and as I grew with it, I knew our success would depend on continuing the high-quality craftsmanship people expected from Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights,” says Drew Bevolo, the company’s the third-generation owner.
