Elevate Your Crib With Home Decor From These 18 Black-Owned Businesses


I have officially reached level 5 of adulting and although I'm totally grateful for the family couch that houseguests from across the world have sat on for a decade, it's time for me to own actual furniture that I actually bought with my own money and I plan to spend my hard-earned coins wisely.

Big box businesses have proven time and time again that they don't know, don't show, or don't care about Black lives until it comes to the value of the Black dollar, and sis is tired. I am sis.

I've officially decided to ditch the department store and #BuyBlack when it comes to designing the living space of my dreams and thanks to the good folks over at Black Twitter, I have the ultimate list of Black-owned furniture and decor businesses that will allow me to do exactly that.

Generational wealth starts at home and IKEA is lit and all, but pouring money back into your community is a major flex. Along with The Juno Studio, who offers handwoven air plant hangers and unique essential oil diffusers, Yaël & Valérie Fabrics is also out here doing it for the culture with their high-end, historically-inspired wallpapers and home accessories.

If you're feeling inspired to reset, realign, and redecorate during this time, check out 18 business that will help you level up your space and be proud of your purchase at the same damn time.

What-is-the-gray-rock-method

Breaking up is hard to do. That’s the hook of a song from way back in the day, and as someone who has broken up with people before and had a few end things with me, I can certainly attest to that very fact. Thing is, when it comes to this particular topic, sinceI am also a life coach in the area of relationships, I do think that what can make a break-up so much more painful — or at least triggering — is how someone chooses to do it…and boy, if the gray rock method is not one of the most cowardly ones out here — WHEW.
