Family Tradition

In 1956 John Arevian bought Avenue Hardware in Westmount and for nearly 20 years ran a well-known neighbourhood hardware store. In 1975 Avenue Hardware became Arevco Lighting. In the early years he specialized in sourcing the best quality light bulbs, particularly low voltage halogen as well as a selection of imported quality light fixtures. He expanded his offering with an in-store line of fixtures fabricated with quality brass and bronze parts imported from Italy.

In 2001 Hera Arevian opened Arevco Lighting Ottawa as a small lighting boutique in trendy Westboro. In 2012 the store expanded to a new 3000 sq. ft. showroom. Hera and her qualified team have gained a reputation for providing attentive customer service, in-depth lighting expertise, consultation and repair work. On-line shopping is maintained and operated by Arevco Lighting Ottawa.


  • Arevco sells only high quality brands at very competitive prices. Even though I live in Vancouver, BC, everything went so smoothly with my first order of Hubbardton Forge lights so I placed two more orders with them.

    Bought lighting fixtures for my entire house (both indoor and outdoor) from Arevco. I cannot say enough good things about Hera and Faye. Professional, helpful, considerate and very knowledgeable. Absolutely the best.

  • The owners and the staff at Arevco were a delight to deal with and provided us with unusual and elegant options of high quality.

    Throughout our home we now have inspired lighting that we enjoy immensely. Our friends frequently comment on the beautiful sculptural designs.

    Arevco lives up to the motto we saw on their window...'where art meets function'! The value added to our home is considerable relative to the cost.

  • I would highly recommend Arevco Lighting, we had brought back some lamps from Europe and had them rewired by Arevco, such professional service and they were finished in the time frame that they gave us....will go there again. They also have some beautiful lamps in the store to suit every style.

  • We are completely satisfied with the lamp, and more importantly, with your excellent customer service.

    Arevco certainly went over and above to satisfy us as customers. For that, we want to say thank you very much.

    Thank you, once again, and best regards, JH
  • The Koncept lamp was one of the best university gifts I received. Many of my friends would walk into my rez room an immediately admire my lamp.

    Not only was it extremely helpful during the numerous hours spent studying on my desk, the lamp has sleek design which helps keep my desk spacious.

    I am very happy with my Koncept lamp and could not imagine studying at my desk without it!

  • Just to let you know, our lamps arrived safely on Monday and we were very impressed with the packaging that kept them safe.

    The simple design and size are just what we were looking for and the quality is impressive. The shade design is clever.

    So there we are, two happy customers. Kind regards, LM
  • Just wanted to send you a pic of the lights - we LOVE them.

    Thanks again, S.
