Aldo Bernardi Outdoor Lighting Creates Curb Appeal And Adds Value To Homes

Ollier Distributors, Inc., exclusive Aldo Bernardi lighting distributor for the USA and Canada, recognizes that outdoor living and lighting is a major shelter industry trend for 2013. Ollier has seen a significant increase in sales of outdoor lighting and lighted trellises this spring from homeowners creating added value by developing their green spaces and patios into outdoor living and dining areas.

According to a poll given to landscape architects specializing in residential design released in February 2013 by the American Society of Landscape Architects, outdoor living spaces received a 94.5 percent rating of very popular with lighting specifically receiving a popularity rating of 95.1 percent. Outdoor lighting is a major component of outdoor living and garden areas and is an essential element in the perceived value and curb appeal of a property. Outdoor lighting can significantly enhance or detract from a property’s first impression – yet it is one of the most cost effective options for homeowners to improve outdoor living areas. “For homeowners looking to add perceived value to their property, the right outdoor lighting can do wonders for a home’s exterior, ” Curb Appeal, Residential Lighting Magazine.

Furthermore, real estate professionals notice that homes that are beautifully landscaped and have quality outdoor lighting (for both home and garden) sell faster and show more often than homes without this type of curb appeal. “Lighting professionals like to say that good exterior home lighting can add up to 20% to the perceived value of a home. And perception can add up to real money.”, RealEstate.msn.com

Outdoor lighting is used to highlight the best features and angles of a home or architectural structure and can transform and add an artistic element to landscaping and outdoor entertaining and living areas. When choosing outdoor lighting it is important to keep in mind the main functions of outdoor lighting – it should add aesthetic appeal, illuminate areas for outdoor living, and provide safety and security features to the property. Aldo Bernardi’s outdoor collection offers lighting that is energy efficient, of the highest quality standards and is designed to add lasting value and beauty to any exterior application for both residential and commercial use.

Aldo Bernardi Expands Line Of Outdoor Floor Lamps

Image

Caprifoglio floor lamps by Aldo Bernardi beautifully illuminate and accent this Italian outdoor living space.

Ollier Distributors Inc., the exclusive distributor of Aldo Bernardi lighting in the USA and Canada, announces the addition of stationary outdoor floor lamps with aged brass bases to Aldo Bernardi’s outdoor living collection.

The new floor lamps will be added to Aldo Bernardi’s current collection of outdoor lighting designed to expand the living room beyond the house.

The outdoor living collection includes lighted gazebos, pergolas, trellises and floor standing lamps. Outdoor living rooms are increasingly becoming a popular way for homeowners to add value and functional living space to their homes. Humans intrinsically have a desire to connect with and be close to nature, and an outdoor living area satisfies this in addition to creating space for lounging and entertaining.

The outdoor floor lamps – Pitosforo and Caprifoglio – feature a clean and modern silhouette and are made of aged brass tubing, with shiny white methacrylate shades and concrete bases covered with aged copper. These floor lamps are ideal for use under gazebos, pergolas or in any outdoor living room to create ambiance by day or night. The classic lines of the floor lamps lend themselves to an array of design styles from contemporary to transitional.

In the Press : New Aldo Bernardi Collection Le Magie ‘dell Elefante

by Morgan Sheets

We quietly released the new Aldo Bernardi collection Le Magie ‘dell Elefante this spring and it has been very well received.   Thank goodness for the warm and sunny welcome because this gray and gloomy Spring weather was dampening our spirits.

The new Le Magie ‘dell Elefante collection is a casual take on Aldo Bernardi’s classic collection with the same farmhouse modern meets rustic chic feel.  The line is a great solution for the current demand of sophisticated yet relaxed comfort in the luxury market.

Like all Aldo Bernardi lighting, Le Magie dell’ Elefante  is designed and manufactured in a small village located northwest of Venice, Italy, in an area renowned for its traditional artisan cottage industries. Le Magie offers everything expected of Aldo Bernardi products: top quality, designs that blend the past with the present need for practicality, versatility, and handcrafted manufacturing but it comes at a more economical price point, which allows for stretching today’s tight budgets. All pieces have been adapted for use in the North American market.

Le Magie dell’ Elefante consists of three collections: Alba (daybreak), Punti di Luce (bright spots) and Opere (opera’s). Mythically, the elephant has been a symbol of wisdom, strength, reliability and longevity and this new casual lighting line by Bernardi reflects these merits with its durability and steadfastness.

This collection is NOT on our website yet, but you can give us a call and we’ll happily send you a catalogue.  Visit our site for contact info – www.carolollier.com.

I could go on and on about how fabulous this new line is but I’ll let the press and blog love speak for itself. 🙂
