Homeless make tables for Falcons’ new stadium

The surprise isn’t that the Atlanta Falcons want to add furnishings that will make the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium feel less concrete and cold. What’s surprising is who will build the 120 or so hand-crafted tables that the football team has ordered.

All will be constructed by Lamon Luther, a small Douglasville company that relies on an unusual group of employees.

“Our whole workforce has been affected by homelessness and addiction,” said Brian Preston, who started the business after his wife asked him to build furniture she saw on Pinterest.
