Parker Kennedy Living

Parker Kennedy Living believes that a home should be a reflection of the person that lives there.  It's a designer warehouse and retail showroom located in Atlanta that specializes in one of a kind pieces that are hard to find for your home interior.

Lance Jackson and David Ecton created Parker Kennedy Living two years ago.  I love knowing the history behind a great name (remember Roberta Roller Rabbit) and "Parker" and "Kennedy" are the nicknames of the two founders, combined to create their company name. 

I had the wonderful opportunity of having a facebook chat/introduction with Lance and David this weekend and I instantly fell in love with their Southern hospitality.  These gentleman invited me down to their showroom in Atlanta to check out some of their one of a kind finds.  Believe me, on my next trip South to see Kurby, we will be pulling up to visit these fellows (Parker Kennedy Living is located at 1227 Logan Circle, Atlanta, Georgia).

Currently, by appointment only, Parker Kennedy Living specializes in vintage Hollywood Regency style from Palm Beach (Shout out to my girls!).  They have large warehouses in West Palm where they store their finds until they transport them back to Atlanta to restore.  They buy and restore new life into vintage pieces with classic lines and style.   They carry modern, vintage and antique furniture, original artwork, home accessories, decorative lighting--you name it!

Parker Kennedy Living focuses on vintage resale, interior design and product development.

Parker Kennedy Living is a permanent dealer at Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta (who in ATL doesn't know about Scott's!).  They're in the South Building Isle I-7.   They also sell at Cotswold Marketplace in Charlotte, North Carolina and Slate Interiors in Charlotte. 

And how exciting, they're paring with CR Laine this fall at Highpoint to showcase their vintage case goods and accessories with the CR Laine product line.  (Parker Kennedy debuted at Highpoint in the spring 2012 for the first time ever in the Market Square Antique design center and they sold over 98% of their vintage furniture).  Keep your eye out for these guys!  They've got extreme talent

Hey boys, remember you offered to have me tag along with you at the Fall Highpoint 2012?  I'll meet ya at the entrance!  And don't forget us little peeps on your way to the top! 

Vivid Hue Home is also on Pinterest.  Yes, I know, who ISN't?  But check us out!
