The Curator Using His Business for the Greater Good

Seven years ago, Tariq Dixon left corporate America after realizing that he felt much calmer and more grounded when he was cultivating his home space. So he made it his life’s work, co-founding a design studio called Trnk.

Dixon curates a selection of home furnishings and runs Trnk’s own namesake product line. As a queer Black and Korean American, he understands the challenges facing marginalized communities and uses his business as a way to empower and educate others, curating exhibitions that also raise money for different organizations. “If I’m gonna bust my ass this hard, I wanted it to be on my own terms and with a greater reward, which is often not monetary when running a small business,” Dixon told the Cut.
