Ojai Valley Inn & Spa Lights Up The Night With Illume By Paul Ferrante

OJAI, Calif. (August 16, 2016) – In celebration of the unspoiled natural beauty, majestic oak trees and seemingly endless summers of Ojai, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa debuts Illume by Paul Ferrante, a sparkling alfresco evening art installation and champagne lounge.

Beginning August 26, a collection of 28 exquisite, hand-crafted wrought iron and glass lanterns created by Paul Ferrante will adorn the branches of the resort’s iconic 200-year old Oak Tree, casting a magical glow over a pop-up al fresco champagne lounge. Each lantern was hand forged by a Los Angeles-based Paul Ferrante artisan and bears a distinctive design reflective of the Spanish Revival aesthetic, recalling the Inn’s beginnings in 1923. The priceless vintage-inspired selection of hanging pendants, hexagons and spheres feature a variety of clear, antique, seeded or even brilliant mica glass, all of which cast a magical glow over a chic outdoor lounge setting.

The partnership with peerless luxury lighting and furniture design legend Paul Ferrante, beloved by celebrities and designers alike, pairs the company’s gasp-worthy handcrafted designs with the Inn’s lush, sprawling landscape and sophisticated lounge seating. Steps from the historic Wallace Neff Heritage Bar, Illume by Paul Ferrante is an enchanting setting for guests to linger over expertly crafted libations or one of the Inn’s rare vintage wines available by the glass. On Friday evenings complimentary flutes of Veuve Clicquot will be available beneath the luminescent lounge, creating a uniquely Southern Californian experience.

Illume by Paul Ferrante premieres at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa on August 26, 2016. (#IllumePaulFerrante)
