We love Designs by Bolaji.
Not only does Bolaji hold two Harvard degrees, but she's also a skilled artisan. Her beautiful hand-painted furniture features portraits of women adorned with afros and jewelry.
At the end of my Master’s program, in the midst of writing my final papers, I found my way back to art through a different medium—furniture.
Honestly, I painted my first table as a result of having acquired a hideous pale blue table that clashed with the color scheme of my apartment. I decided to spray paint the table black. After butchering the spray-painting job, I decided to cover my errors with a design—a butterfly. This was the genesis of my furniture-painting journey.
Fortunately for us, she's sharing her talents.
You can purchase one of Bolaji's standard end or coffee tables or commission a custom design. Here are some of the available designs.
