Liberated Living: Home Decor Inspired By Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour

The cultural impact of the Renaissance World Tour transcends the iconic performances, custom designer looks, attendee ensembles and once in a lifetime memories, which includes scent with the launch of perfume CÉ NOIR. Beyoncé led a movement that embodies Black pride, cherishes ballroom culture and brings back the joy of dressing up to gather on the dance floor. “The goal for this tour was to create a place where everyone is free and no one is judged,” Beyoncé says in the trailer for Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé.

The 56-stop world tour gathered 2.7 million people globally; all bound together by a love of dance music, community and self. Together, they witnessed Beyoncé’s creative vision, watching decades of dedication culminate in a $4.5 billion boost to the American economy. Through her seismic return to the stage, Beyoncé gave us fresh performances and new takes on timeless hits we’ve adored for decades. For concert goers, this is now a crystallized memory that will forever evoke liberation and a signature style.

“At any point they could close their eyes and be right back there and take it with them.” -Beyoncé



From lighting to wishlist selections to Black-owned brands – designers, tastemakers, and creative friends of The Soulhaus were invited to contribute home decor that encapsulates the essence of Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour, allowing our audience to bring even more magic home.

In the spirit of liberated living (and in honor of the film’s December 1st debut!), I invited The Soulhaus’ community of designers, tastemakers, and creatives to contribute home furniture, decor, and accessories that encapsulate the essence of Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour. From lamps to wishlist selections to pieces designed by Black creatives, each dopamine-inducing item was carefully chosen to mirror the energy of the shows, allowing our audience to bring even more magic home. 

Keep scrolling for the shoppable list—everything on is 10-10-10s across the board.


David Quarles IV


“This pick was inspired by the wardrobe curation for both Beyoncé and the tour’s attendees. The swirling of the black, white and cream reminds me of the sea of silver we saw all summer long. As the songs of Renaissance‘s discography communicate an air of regalia, I feel that this table would do the same for any space in which it was placed.”






“The Renaissance Tour is a celebration of authenticity with a heavy dose of the disco as its base note, which makes me think about the influence the 70’s had on interior design! This lamp is reminiscent of the arc lamps that were popular in that era. With its marble compilation of geometric forms at the base, the floor lamp not only speaks to the elegance with which the Renaissance Tour was crafted, but also the meticulous structure in every scene of each set.”




David’s Pick #3: Contemporary Mosaic Melted Disco Ball Sculpture

How can we talk about the Renaissance Tour without mentioning disco balls? I love incorporating them into design because of the playfulness they bring to an environment. From a formal dining room to resting alongside plants in your sunroom, disco balls can fit any aesthetic. Since the tour’s visual setup also explored surrealism, I chose this particular disco ball, as it is evocative of Salvador Dalí’s “The Persistence of Memory;” a piece by one of my favorite artists!”

Michelle Wilson

Michelle’s Pick #1: Aurora Wall Mirror

Mirror, Mirror with Fringe on the Wall

Disco and metallic fringe go hand in hand. So much of Beyoncé’s wardrobe consisted of silver fringe that I’m sure disco’s pioneers would be proud! The Aurora Wall Mirror may not shine like a disco ball but its sunray-like design gets the idea across!”





Michelle’s Pick #2: Hand Embossed Lotus Six-Drawer Dresser

“The Renaissance album and tour are well-crafted works of art that will go down in history. The attention to detail shown throughout reminds me of this one-of-a-kind Hand-Embossed Lotus Six-Drawer Dresser from Anthropologie. The beauty is truly in the details.”

Joy’s Pick #2: Kibo Steel and Oakwood Media Console

“While bold and masculine, the steel’s shine adds a femininity designed to draw you in. Also, the wood grain of the oak hugs this piece to create the perfect balance. Sasha Fierce would absolutely own this table!”







Joy’s Pick #3: Luca Spider Marble Side Table

“This end table embodies Renaissance—from the heavy chrome base to the luxury of the black marble top. The attention to detail screams “I’m That Girl” and it’s versatile enough to use in a bedroom, living room or swanky office space.”

Lorna Gross

Lorna’s Pick #1: Dana Gibson Leopard Lamp Shade

A coral lampshade with embroidered leopards symbolizes strength, power, and determination—all of the qualities of Beyoncé. Beyoncé’s Barbiecore outfit came to mind when selecting this piece. It also reminds me of her custom Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini look, which consisted of a shimmering, long sleeve bodysuit paired with over-the-knee boots and a coral coat.





Lorna’s Pick #2: Honeycomb Dinnerware Collection

Queen Bey. This Honeycomb Dinnerware Collection resembles the BeyHive, her infamous fandom. It’s only fitting to have Beyoncé’s fans reflected in an item. To her loyal, loving fans, Bey takes centerstage; just like this collection.

Amber’s Pick #3: Meyer Polished Aluminum Champagne/Wine Chiller

Oyster Shell Champagne Chiller

Speaking of champagne, why not add this polished wine chiller from CB2 to your dining room or bar cart? An ode to the House of Chrome, I love the details of this oyster shell bowl. I think Beyoncé herself would sit in it and serenade us all with “Plastic off the Sofa.”

Remul’s Pick #1: Awol Erizku: Mystic Parallax book*

“Author Awol Erizku’s “Mystic Parallax” delves into African-American and African culture, from hip hop vernacular to Nefertiti. This book’s design and content parallels Beyoncé’s commitment to showcasing and uplifting Black culture. Her artistic endeavors, including the Renaissance album and Black Is King, align with the themes and concepts explored by the author. Also, the cover’s sequins and disco glitz perfectly captures the vibrant energy of the Renaissance World Tour.”


*Mystic Parallax was written by an Ethopian-American artist


Remul’s Pick #2: Meyourge Black Barbie Ankara Print Textiles

The Barbiecore fashion trend embraces Barbie’s playful spirit. Beyoncé’s outfits share the same whimsical charm.

Kelly’s Pick #2: Multi Colored Glass Side Table

Church Girl Side Table
