June is LGBT Pride Month, and it’s a good reminder to buy from more LGBTQ-owned businesses now and all year long. We’ve rounded up our favorite companies to shop, from furniture to textiles to decor. Check out our top picks below and start supporting more LGBTQ+ designers throughout your home and life.

HOMEWARES + FURNITURE

MINNA

Founded by Sara Berks in 2013, MINNA has grown into a studio, storefront and online shop specializing in textiles and homewares heavily inspired by Bauhaus style. The Hudson, New York company is a “queer-led business which informs our approach to just about everything we do.”

TRNK

Co-founded and curated by Tariq Dixon, TRNK is a high-end, contemporary furniture and decor brand intended to feel "collected, not decorated" with unique statement pieces for every room.

Bobby Berk Home

If you love Bobby Berk's room makeovers on Queer Eye, you can now shop his aesthetic online! Bobby Berk Home is available at select retailers including Wayfair. The collection includes modern loveseats and area rugs, art, peel-and-stick wallpaper and accent furniture.

Darling Spring

If you haven't heard of Darling Spring, brace yourself for a sapphic wonderland of homewares, linens and more. Founded by Eril Serbetci and Banu Tangule, this brand is all about celebrating female artists and designers. We are obsessed with the flashback collection of enamel kitchenware.

Nate Berkus

HGTV designer and host Nate Berkus is known for a curated look that's lovable and liveable. And even if you can't swing design services from his firm, you can snag his bedding and decor from Target. The collection, which has been one of our favorites for years, always has a great selection of calming neutrals in trendy textures.

Roverlund

Vogue alum Jamie Knowles launched Roverlund in 2019 and it's the perfect combination of style and sustainability for pet accessories. The camo pet carriers have a signature pop of color thanks to the mountain-climbing grade rope. Even better: The carrier converts into a backpack.

Lockwood

"Our goal is that you immediately feel at home when you enter," says Mackenzi Farquer, owner of Lockwood. Farquer opened the home goods store in 2007 in Astoria and has since expanded to five stores around New York City and a massive online shop, too.

Jonathan Adler

Iconic designer (and former HGTV Design Star guest judge!) Jonathan Adler's style riffs on midcentury modern and Hollywood glam, but his furniture and decor are more saturated, bold and even borderline avant-garde — especially with his signature pottery. We've fallen in love with so many lines from Jonathan Adler from his affordable furniture at Amazon (that we really wish would restock) to his newest collaboration with Ruggable washable rugs.

Fredericks and Mae

Based in Brooklyn, Fredericks & Mae is a design studio "reveling in the art of the gift." But it's so much more than trinkets. These wares are clever and downright nifty. The bespoke decor and homeware created by founders Jolie Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks have grown into a curated showcase of dozens of home and gift designers. And big brands such as Room&Board and Food52 are taking notice. We love these citronella incense coils for outdoor entertaining.

DECOR + GIFTS

June Bug and Darlin

Whether you love buying cross-stitch pieces or want to try your hand at one, June Bug and Darlin has the cutest patterns. The queer Etsy shop in Portland, Oregon has tons of floral designs with a whimsical cottagecore vibe as well as embroidery hoops for sale in soft, pastels and PDFs under $10 for instant download.

Queer Candle Co.

Business partners and queer couple Ab Gibson and Al Rose have been pouring candles from their NYC home since 2017. The hobby grew into Queer Candle Co., a line of soy wax candles infused with herbs they grow themselves. And each month, the company donates 10 percent of their monthly earnings to the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, an NYC grassroots organization working to "guarantee that all people are free to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence."

Show & Tell

Founded by Alyah Baker in 2011, Show & Tell Concept Shop features a handmade line of decor and throws as well as curated accessories from other LGBTQIA+ owned and inclusive brands. The Oakland company also sells vibrant, colorful quilts and wall hangings made by Alyah's mom.

MALIN+GOETZ

Luxury hotels around the world love to stock suites with MALIN+GOETZ soaps and lotions. You can snag the same body washes and balms on Amazon, but the New York apothecary founded by Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz also features luxe candles and perfumes inspired by high-end materials such as leather and dark rum that make great gifts.

Woxer

Created by Alexandra Fuente, Woxer was supposed to fill a gap in the underwear and loungewear industry for women by offering more gender-neutral and actually comfortable underwear. But it's become a beacon in the queer community for all genders because the styles at Woxer aren't readily sold at big box stores with traditional, gendered departments. And the material is so soft. The new Dreamer shorts are perfect for lazy Sundays, movie marathons and working from home.

Boy Smells

Founded in Los Angeles in 2015 by partners Matthew Herman and David Kien, Boy Smells is all about challenging the gender binary with a smell. The now popular pink-wrapped candles take stereotypical feminine scents and pair them with stereotypical masculine scents, creating unique fragrances such as sawdust with berries or roses and smoke.

Bokksu

Put Bokksu on your gift radar ASAP. Founded by Danny Taing in 2015, the Bokksu brings Japanese culture to your home one snack at a time. The signature subscription box is perfect for travelers, foodies or those who just love to try new sweets. But there are other gift boxes that don't require a subscription such as this rainbow ramen noodle gift box which is so much cooler than another bouquet delivery.

ASH + CHESS

Created by couple Ashley Molesso and Chess Needham, stationery brand Ash + Chess is a must-shop for art prints, greeting cards, stickers and more. Their designs are empowering, vibrant and filled with queer and trans love. They've also designed a queer tarot deck that's a perfect gift for any tarot fan as it's considered unlucky to buy a deck for yourself.

JZD

Founded by couple Jefas Jen and Veronica Zeano in 2014, JZD started with one Latina Power T-shirt. Nearly a decade later, it's exploded into a Latina and queer lifestyle brand with homewares, stationery, accessories and more. They even have a line of signature candles, too.

GARDEN + FLORALS

Putnam & Putnam

Iconic floral duo and partners Michael Putnam and Darroch Putnam have designed florals for celebrities, graced the pages of Vogue, curated installations for Bergdorf Goodman and the list of glamorous credits goes on. And while the beloved designers aren't available for your kitchen table bouquet, you can learn from the pros as they have three books on floral arrangements, color theory and design. And the books themselves make great coffee table or bedside table books, too.

Grand Prismatic Seed

"Our seeds are happy," says Grand Prismatic Seed. Located in the foothills of the Wasatch Range in Fruit Heights, Utah, the farm, co-founded and co-owned by couple James Young and Guy Banner, grows open-pollinated seeds with a focus on plants that make amazing, vibrant natural dyes. You can even shop these online, from Japanese indigo to a variety of marigolds.

Hudson Valley Seed Co.

Co-founded by Ken Greene and Doug Muller, Hudson Valley Seed Co. is known for its colorful seed Art Boxes for meadows and gardens. The upstate New York farm specializes in heirloom and open-pollinated garden seeds. And the custom Pansy Mix box displays artwork from Paul Harfleet of the Pansy Project, an art movement planting pansies at the site of homophobic abuse.
