In this post, we review seating from black owned brands.  This includes chairs, sofas, benches, ottomans, poufs, bean bags and more. According to experts, home decor affects our mood.  It can make us feel more creative, happy, and energetic.  Even small changes can make a difference in how we feel.  Home decorating (or redecorating) is also a chance to make our “nests” more of a reflection of ourselves.
