We love designing narrative-driven spaces. Part of creating the narrative is identifying beautiful pieces that have a history to them, and implementing them into the homes that we design. Pieces like the Juju Hat. We fell in love with these Cameroonian hats in the early part of the 21st century. Thick with colorful feathers, these ceremonial hats were reimagined as objet d’art in our residential designs, hanging as a colorful decorative elements on the wall. Yet, while Juju hats are a common sight on the walls of many modern interiors, for the Bamileke people of Western Cameroon they were once a rare thing reserved only for a select few.

As designers it’s our job to create a sensory experience for our clients, through materiality, color, texture, light, sound and even scents. That’s what inspired the development of the AphroChic Signature Candle. We wanted to leave each of the spaces we designed with a scent that was immediately warm and enveloping.

With New Heirlooms, we have taken our unique perspective on modern design and culture in home decor and designed a collection that looks forward to a time where representation is a reflex, not a trend, and diversity is a habit rather than an act. In anticipation of that moment, New Heirlooms offers inheritable pieces that will stay with families for generations to come.
