Whether designing your first home or trying to decide how to rearrange a room, we all need a little inspiration sometimes. When we finally find that spark we’re looking for, it’s even more magical to see ourselves represented in that creativity and know that people who look like us are out in the world exploring the same passions. There’s no better time to celebrate diverse visionaries in the design space, especially since the percentage of Black interior designers in the industry is still at a low of only 1.5%, according to the career website Zippia. Championing and uplifting their work not only opens new opportunities for future generations but signals to emerging trendsetters that anything is possible. Want to get to know some of these ingenious influencers and experts? We’ve got you covered. Here are eight Black designers to follow for inspiration in 2024.

But that’s not the only impressive accolade in his deck of cards. He leads a team of designers in New York City and his hometown, Detroit, masterminding iconic interiors around the globe.
