Kelly Drive is an advocate for the fantastic artisans, artists and designers who create unique pieces of functional work. We're inspired by creative culture and dedicated to sharing our signature collection with likeminded individuals near and far. As friends and collaborators, our community remains true to our values of craftsmanship, artistry and innovation by providing you quality work like none other.
An idea several years in the making, Kelly Drive grew out of the desire to connect skilled artisans and designers with their fans near and far. In an era of mass production and consumerism, we've witnessed a countercultural shift toward slowing down life's pace: tastes have become more discretionary and there's an increased desire for sustainable living. Recognizing a similar demand for quality design that rings true, we developed Kelly Drive as an online venue for thoughtful, inspired work like no other. With our friends and collaborators, Kelly Drive champions the everyday values of craftsmanship, artistry and innovation above all else.
Curving away from Philadelphia's city center, Kelly Drive is a historical throughway set between the rolling hillsides of Fairmount Park and the languid Schuylkill River. As a connection, Kelly Drive carried all variety of travelers from industry workers to their mills upstream and the city's cultural elite to their summer hideaways. We're inspired by this tradition and feel Kelly Drive perfectly symbolizes our unique mission.
