Black artists in interior design boast multi-faceted creativity, spearheading original brands and engineering products deserving of the industry’s spotlight. But despite their inspiring designs, their works have historically been overlooked and underrepresented. More often than not, discovering Black-owned home brands takes more effort than it should, like search engine deep dives or an endorsement from a major retailer. With that said, it’s crucial to support them at every opportunity. When shopping for decor from these makers for your home, you might imagine one-of-a-kind ceramics, textiles, or furniture, but don’t forget about your walls. On the hunt for an elegant floral pattern to adorn the guest bathroom? Need something colorful and culturally significant for the home office? You’re in luck. Check out these eight Black designers making waves in the world of wallpaper.
