FQ1Today in New Orleans, Mardi Gras is in full swing on the last day before the Lenten season begins.  All over town, revelers are swinging on lampposts never really looking up to see the amazing gas lamps that line the historic streets of the French Quarter.

I for one would be noticing, and admiring, the lamps and the craftsmanship that went into them and their reverence for a time long past.  This is why I love Bevolo Gas and Electric Lights, a New Orleans based company that produces gas lamps with expert craftsmanship, including their signature French Quarter Lamp, part of their copper lights collection.

About the French Quarter Lamp: “This Bevolo original was designed in the 1940s by world renowned architect A. Hays Town. The French Quarter light adorns many historic buildings across the country. The light can be used with a wide range of architectural styles. It is available in natural gas, liquid propane, and electric.”

Picture a few of these French Quarter Lamps gracing your back yard where you can evoke the spirit of New Orleans all year over and swing from you very own lamppost whenever you want – even without beads as an incentive.
