If you haven't yet read the memo, African décor is a trend not to be ignored. Part of the reason why it's so hot is its incorporation of bright and bold patterns. Miami-based designer Taj Hunter Waite has made herself a leading purveyor of this modern trend with her collection of pillows made from West African Ankara fabrics. The graphic pillows won't only make a statement on your sofa, but they also help better the world. A portion of the profits go to your choice of a non-profit that helps empower women throughout the world. Choose from causes like Nest, Care, or the Malala Fund (started in 2012 by Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani teen and advocate for girl's education, who was shot after the Taliban stormed her school bus). It's not often that design and global consciousness meet, but when they do it's a beautiful thing.
