Reflektion Design began in 2006 in Ghana, West Africa. Of course I did not know that at the time but that is where the seed was planted. I was selected as a Fulbright Scholar and spent 8 weeks in Ghana immersed in not only the culture but also the process of creating various African textiles along with the sights, sounds and wares of the African marketplace. This is where I felt alive and connected to the community.

For culturally inspired people who love unique, colorful pieces.

But it wasn’t until late 2013 after being laid off that I revisited my love affair with Ghana. I was at a crossroads but instead of feeling defeated I considered it opportunity to forge my own path. When I thought about the happiest moments of my life Ghana surfaced repeatedly. It was then I realized I had to share my passion for African textiles and culture with others and Reflektion Design was officially launched.

Your home is the ultimate form of expression.

Your home is the ultimate canvas for self-expression. From the lighting fixtures to wall color items in your home should reflect who you are, spark memories of past adventures, inspire new ones and be the ultimate statement of your style.

Instead we often settle for decor with little self relevance or imagination. Cookie cutter decor void of visual aesthetics and most importantly void of you. You are vibrant and worldly.

You seek a deeper connection to African culture and tradition and you want to express that connection at home. I’m here to help.

I’m Anitra and I design and source African decor for culturally inspired people who love unique, colorful pieces reflektive of who they are.

Using a curated approach to sourcing textiles and a discerning eye for pattern, I work with artisans in Ghana, Kenya and Uganda to create beautiful African art, decor, tableware and accessories that help customers and design professionals create transformative spaces that feel fully expressed – collected, not decorated.

Say goodbye to humdrum decor and hello to decor that sparks conversations and makes you smile every time you walk into your space. It’s time to see yourself at home.
