MAD ABOUT: Lighting by Allied Maker


Need a little help over the Wednesday hump?  This walnut-maple lamp has got me all giddy inside. When I saw it, I had to know where to get one- like, immediately.   To me, this is not just a lamp.  This is one of those pieces that embodies both great design and quality craftsmanship. The proportions... the contrast of the the maple with the walnut...  it's love at first sight.  Allied Maker is brand, and Ryden Rizzo is the designer.  Ryden is an artist and woodworker living in Brooklyn, New York, and Allied Maker is where he creates and sells bespoke lighting and goods for the home.  Every product in his line is individually handcrafted by Ryden himself in his studio in Sea Cliff, NY.  Ryden also makes handcrafted home goods too.  See the entire collection of lighting a home goods here.
