Artist Malene Barnett's Haven


Door Material: CLJ Saddle Slab

Malene Barnett, founder of the Black Artists+Designers Guild, teamed up with designer Leyden Lewis to make her Brooklyn home a tribute to the modern Black experience.

Semihandmade Saddle Slab cabinet doors (from our exclusive Chris Loves Julia collection) serve as the base for the grounded yet inviting kitchen, which flows directly into other spaces like the living room. Barnett and Lewis liken this open-concept plan to the embodiment of Black joy—the ability to express and dance freely throughout the home.

The intricate wallpaper, from Barnett’s collection for Lulu and Georgia, adds contrast to the warm wood storage.
