‘Tis the season to spruce up your home. And what better way to do just that than by decking your space with stunning and unique finds from Black-owned home decor brands? Making some of these indie businesses a part of one’s regular repertoire of goods is not only good for showing long-term support of Black entrepreneurs, but great for a much-needed decor upgrade, especially considering the variety of options at your fingertips.
For instance, with summer here and vibrant colors at the top of mind, a brightly toned pouf, foot stool, or woven rug from designer and artist Justina Blakeney’s brand Jungalow can be just the ticket to warming up the home. Or, for those who like a more minimalist aesthetic, industrial designer Jomo Tariku offers simplistic-yet-unique furniture inspired by Ethiopian culture. And vintage lovers can find a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind treasures at Brooklyn-based vintage shop, BLK MKT Vintage, which is comprised of carefully curated collectibles and knickknacks you won’t find anywhere else.
