About Our Founder

Since childhood, Kabria Cummings exhibited a love for interiors. Her parents, Sam and Ella Cummings were avid decorators who scoured thrift stores for items that they could breathe new life into. They sewed and reupholstered furniture, gardened, collected ethnic artwork and her father even built his own furniture.

Although Kabria chose a career in graphic design and marketing, her parents' love for interior design heavily influenced her. Kabria recalls visiting home decor stores and African markets with her mother as a child. Once she began to travel, Kabria returned with ethnic art that she added to her parents' collection. This was a hobby until life forced her to reconsider things. The tragic deaths of her parents, only two months apart as well as other pivotal losses including the end of a relationship and her job of 10 1/2 years, led Kabria to take a break. She spent this time grieving the loss of her parents and figuring out what the next chapter of her life would look like. She decided to shift focus to the things that she enjoyed most; traveling, interior decorating and giving back to others. In 2016, she founded Global Attic LLC. Global Attic sells unique, "tribal luxe" home decor sourced from Kabria's travels around the world. The company is a physical tribute to her parents Sam & Ella.

Global Attic's inventory is hand-selected and in some instances, designed by Kabria. The curated collection of statement pieces transforms living spaces, conveys individuality and helps to sustain the global community. The company not only pays artisans a fair wage, but also makes donations to several charitable campaigns and organizations throughout the year.
