bright idea

September 11, 2013




Rob Kennedy lights up when he talks about lamps. Especially the lamps he makes in his workshop in downtown Atlanta.

Lamps can finish or complete a room or look, says Kennedy. They also can compliment or add an unexpected element.

Kennedy started his business in 2007 after studying ceramics in college and learning how to turn wood on a lathe from Skylar Morgan of Atlanta-based SMFD.

To make his lamps, Kennedy uses various materials, including wood, glass, ceramic and leather.

At the moment, he’s fond of felt. Instead of being crafty, the 100 percent boiled wool felt lends an industrial feel to his fresh, eco-friendly work.

Kennedy’s handmade lamps ($275 to $700) are only available at Atlanta MADE, 1187 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta

The new shop features furniture, home décor, chocolate, jewelry, organic skin care and artwork by local artisans.
