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

Reset, realign, and redecorate during this time with these 18 Black-owned furniture and decor businesses.

Home Improvement

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.

7 Signs You've Evolved From 'Being Chosen' To 'Doing The Choosing' In Relationships

“When you heal, you go from wanting to be chosen to doing the choosing.” This quote came to mind one day while journaling. It had been almost two years of doing the work to heal my inner child wounds. For almost a decade, I spent most of my teenage and young adult years unconsciously looking for someone to rescue me. Someone who would show up for me “full-time” the same way I wanted my caregivers to show up for me full-time.
