SaVonne is the founder and creative director of Aya Paper Co., a sustainable stationery brand based in Newark, NJ
"When I walk into my office space every day, my heart swells with joy. I have been designing the office slowly and sustainably, which is something I don't see often in media. There's a lot of focus on what's new, expensive, and on trend. But I come from a culture of resourcefulness where you buy furniture that lasts, inherit vintage pieces from your community, and sidewalk shop. It's important for me to show that you can have a chic and beautiful space without creating waste or breaking the bank—and look like me."
