5 Black-Owned Pillow Brands to Upgrade Your Home for the New Year

5 Black-Owned Pillow Brands to Upgrade Your Home for the New Year

The New Year comes with many new changes? From the way you revamp your home with your day-to-day decorations to the way in which you create goals to change bad habits; as we live to see a New Year, more changes are to follow. As a Black Southern Belle I have always heard the saying “out with the old and in with the new.” Even though it has become a common saying for many aspects of life, a good way to keep this ritual and tradition alive is by doing your version of “out with the old and in with the new.” While cleaning out the old, take some time to evaluate all bedrooms, your living room, and den to see how you can do a quick revamp that will bring comfort for all throughout. We all appreciate comfort, so when guests come over and family are in the same room, we want to provide comfort. One main way that we can add comfort in these areas are through cozy, soft yet firm pillows. Changing pillows for the New Year is a great way to get rid of the old and bring in new comfort; while also doing so in style.

Here are 5 Black-Owned Pillow Brands that you can purchase to upgrade your home for the New Year all while supporting Black Owned business. 

Aphro Chic

History, culture, creativity and new narratives are strong decor aspects in which Aphro Chic prides themselves on. This brand offers many decor items, but their pillows are what we are interested in purchasing for the New Year. Square or rectangle and made of 100% cotton, these pillows are perfect for a home that isn’t afraid to have various colors and prints. 

Vashti Harrison

When upgrading the house for the New Year, don’t leave the kids out on this one. Ensure their room has a few changes and encourage them to pick their favorite pillow design by Vashti Harrison to include. From wish draw clocks and balloon party designs to butter cups rugs and fairy tale pillows; Vashti Harrison offers pillows in all of these themes and more. Which would be a great addition or switcheroo in a child’s library or room for the New Year. 

Livvy & Neva

Vintage is always a great piece to add in the home of a Southern Belle and Livvy & Neva has an excellent vintage and contemporary pillow collection. Created by Keita Turner, Lvvy & Neva offers fashionable, one-of-a-kind limited edition decorative pillows to add throughout your home. These pillows are designed from excellent-condition or never used vintage textiles and can upgrade your home for the New Year. Also remember, even though you are making a few upgrades to your home, vintage items will always be a staple piece in a Southern Belle home.

​Effortless Composition

Founder & Chief Interior Stylist Brittiny says that creating a home you love should be effortless and is what we should also aim to do in the New Year. Upgrade your home with subtle pieces; such as pillows from Effortless Composition. These elevated home decor goods are rich in aesthetics and will add glamour to any room. Adding pieces from this Black-Owned business will bring you joy, spark a conversation, and inspire a bit of creativity for the rest of the space. Now is the time to be out with the old and in with Effortless Composition new designs. 

Don’t Sleep Interiors

Don’t Sleep Interiors has ideal items that can enhance sleep, however still keep you “woke” in today’s society.  Inspired by artist Emory Douglas & designers like Sheila Bridges, Joshua Kissi & Travis Gumbs, Don’t Sleep Interiors  has culture, social and political consciousness, and African diaspora merged into pillow designs that can add depth to a home and encourage conversation. Pieces from Don’t Sleep Interiors range from images of Black Wall Street and the Black Renaissance to historical people and artifacts like the James Baldwin and the Chicago Defender.

Swapping out old pillows for new ones is just one way to start the New Year. However, don’t let it stop there. Continue to view Black-Owned business here on BSB and find more ways to upgrade your home all while supporting Black-Owned businesses.
