This glazed vase is white with striking circles around the perimeter. We think it really sums up our modern Africa aesthetic.

Why it's on The Cornrow?
We believe plants and vases furnish a room at The Cornrow, so we are always on the hunt for weird and wonderful ways to display plants and flowers. We have a vase for every aesthetic - minimal, maximal and everything in between but always in keeping with a style we like to call "Modern Africa".
The Cornrow, founded by sisters Kemi (big sis) and Lara (little sis) in 2020, is a heartfelt tribute to their African and Caribbean heritage. With a deep passion for homeware, books, and lifestyle products that celebrate the Black experience, the sisters scour the globe for joyful representations of their culture. Kemi, who left a career in corporate finance during the UK lockdown, is the driving force behind The Cornrow, sharing her love for the brand on Instagram @CottageNoir. Lara, an accomplished digital marketing professional, is committed to supporting Black-owned brands and can be found on TikTok at ThisIsLaraLand. The Cornrow is a true family affair, with their mother Yasmin providing creative advice and gift-wrapping services @yasminwrapstar, and Yasmin's partner Jonathan, formerly of Chelsea Design Centre, offering invaluable retail advice. Together, they are on a mission to spotlight under-represented stories of Black and African diaspora design, introducing "Afro-aristo" as a fresh addition to traditional design trends.
