Have you ever found yourself mesmerized by the elegant flicker of a copper gas lantern illuminating a scenic outdoor vista? You’re not alone; many people have taken to the natural elegance of copper lanterns over the past decade, causing a revival in the appreciation of the artisanship behind making every hand-made piece.
These special looks light up with the help of either natural gas or propane, allowing you some flexibility with your fuel options. Once set in the right scene, a copper gas lantern will deliver an atmospheric experience that is impossible to replicate with any electronic feature. A Bevolo gas lantern will give off a naturally sparkling light that dances across the glass interior, adding an aura of elegance while still being just as practical as modern-day plastics.
Able to be used outdoors in a wide variety of locations, copper gas lanterns from Bevolo will endure water and moderate interference from Mother Nature’s children. The natural coloring will develop over time into a rich patina that is not only unique to each gas lantern but also to the area where they are placed in. You can rest easy knowing that Bevolo’s copper lanterns are all hand-made with care by the hands of trained, skilled craftsmen.
Although certainly a type of elegant lighting that has hundreds of years of history behind it, it has been used by a wide variety of peoples across all social strata. Farmers would use copper lanterns to allow them to work late into the night. Fishermen and other peoples of the sea would use copper lanterns as a means of sight and communication, as copper would be able to handle the harsh experiences of saltwater.
Over time, each profession and area would begin to develop their own unique “flair” of copper lanterns. Historic gas lanterns even differ between New Orleans and the French Quarter at-large. Everyone familiar with the affairs of Bourbon Street understands the lasting impression that a good-looking gas lantern creates for the atmosphere. Indeed, the very sign for Bourbon Street is adorned with a regal, copper lantern!
Typically, the two kinds of lighting requested most by our clients are accent lighting and “normal” lighting:
Accent lighting is utilized for adding flair or a sense of drama around a specific room. It can also be used to add ambiance to another piece, such as the sign for Bourbon Street, and works synergistically as a greater whole. Accent lighting can also highlight graceful rooflines and ceilings with complementary architecture with roundabout lighting. The various designs that Bevolo artisans can replicate come with both Spanish and French heritage and can be used to tell a story about the background of the area they accent.
Normal lighting jobs are also no problem for copper gas lanterns. A gas lantern will give off a buttery-smooth light which induces a feeling of comfort and security. The strength of light can be adjusted to meet the demands of the area with the help of a coupler. Unlike lightbulbs that punish the eye for daring to glance at their harsh rays, a gas lantern invites the gaze of all passing by to appreciate its bright, little dance.
When seeking to set your home different from others, investing in a copper gas lantern as an accent piece allows for some old-world customization of any space. Bevolo started with the French Quarter during the closing days of the Second World War and has kept its legendary customer service reputation for nearly 80 years.
When using a copper gas lantern to light the outdoors, make sure that it fits with the lines of the area that you’re trying to elevate. Bevolo experts have been consulted for their knowledgebase of how to best use gas lanterns to present the proper image desired.
Despite the surge of popularity of copper gas lanterns, old-world artisans who possess the skill and knowledge to manufacture them are becoming increasingly scarce in an ever-technological world. Consumers with a discerning eye for quality have come to trust Bevolo’s time-tested process that shines through every copper gas lantern lit.
