Just 2 percent of interior designers in the U.S. are Black, according to data from the job search company Zippia. That’s especially staggering when you consider that interior design services have a U.S. market size of $17.5 billion. There have been recent pushes for improved diversity, equality, and inclusion measures in the industry. In 2018, artist and designer Malene Barnett founded the Black Artists and Designers Guild, a community-driven nonprofit that aims to increase visibility for Black creatives across various fields of design. It also provides grants for Black design students and develops educational programming, among other initiatives.
