  Interior designers share the 11 mistakes you're making when shopping at thrift stores for furniture and decor Professionals say you shouldn't pass up picture frames because of bad art or underestimate the cost of a furniture repair when at the secondhand shop.Here's what they said:

We are excited to announce that TOV Furniture collaborated with six distinguished Black interior designers to create an inspiring, luxurious collection that amplifies their work. And better yet, it’s from some of our all-time faves: Nicole White, Nile Johnson, Erika Ward, Justin Q. Williams, Carmeon Hamilton, and Don Ricardo Massenburg. The Voice Collection was formed to address the lack of visibility and recognition for the Black design community in the industry.

"We have a unique voice because our experiences are nuanced, with layers and layers of stories to share that inform and highlight our individual design aesthetics,” explains White. The Voice Collection speaks to our unique voices and the need to have those voices heard consistently.” This memorable launch captures the beauty and strength of collaboration and the significance of giving incredible Black artists a platform to share their vision.

To cut through the noise in the industry, the collection raises its own volume in a way you simply have to behold. It's filled with beautiful silhouettes, high-quality fabrics, and thoughtfully designed pieces that stand on their own. The line includes statement bed frames, chic accent chair, stunning storage units and so much more. Each designer worked closely with the TOV team to tell their stories and design initiatives from the ground up.

Breaking down the stigma that Black designers are a monolith, there are special moments within the 20+ piece collection, bringing forth a wide-reaching perspective that screams to be heard. From Carmeon Hamilton’s Adu Chest, Etta Coffee & Side Table, and Simone Credenza (each reflecting a major design event in her life), to Nile Johnson’s Abreeyah Sofa, Jibriyah Bed, and Makai Console Desk, inspired by and named after his three children, the collection comes to life through deep personal ties to its designers.

“It was never a hard decision for us to create The Voice Collection,” says Chaya Krinsky, CEO of TOV Furniture. “We all share a community of followers, a love for design, and a belief that furniture should represent who you are."

Dynamic, bold, and yet still harmonious, the collection seamlessly hits each note for a thoughtfully-designed home. Massenberg hopes the collection is celebrated, and not made a token, striving towards investments in innovative ideas, broad experiences, and diverse skillsets. "To all creatives of color: your voice matters. It has always mattered! Create with soul. Create with boldness. Create with passion. Be unapologetically you," Massenberg urges.
