As a way to continue to support the Black community, we’re introducing a new series where we’ll be highlighting Black-owned businesses: their stories, products, and services. Last week we featured BLK + GRN, an all-natural marketplace by Black artisans that aligns with our ethos here at Poosh. Up next is an interior decor brand, Claude Home, a vintage-inspired e-commerce site stocked with unique items to make your home feel special.
Founder Maggie Holladay, a former fashion editor for i-D Magazine, turned her hobby of vintage shopping into a full-time job in December 2018. Enter Claude Home—your destination for beautiful furniture and statement sculptures and trinkets. “I started collecting a bunch of vintage furniture and miscellaneous items. My boyfriend at the time was like, ‘Mags, we don’t need eight sets of marble coasters. Make an Instagram account and sell this.’ His nickname was ‘Claude,’ so that’s where I got Claude Home from.”
According to Maggie, the core mission behind her brand is “to help people discover and shop classic timeless design.” Her site is carefully curated with a range of items and price points, from velvet sofas to stunning stone stools and accessories. As far as what’s next for Claude Home, she shared, “More pieces designed by me. I’m working with a few amazing artists to collaborate on a brilliant furniture line that I’m so excited about.”
We also asked her what she’s learned as a founder, and she answered honestly, “Asking for help does not make you weak. I’ve always been stubborn and try to do everything myself. It’s just become impossible at this point.” Follow Claude Home here on Instagram and shop a few of our favorite pieces below.
