Anyone else excited for the long weekend ahead? Though this Memorial Day might be a little different from years past, it still is the unofficial start to summer. We hope you have some fun plans at home! As usual, we’re ending the work week with our favorite finds:

— Wishing a happy anniversary to interior designer Mark Cunningham’s one year-old brand, MARKED! Mark’s refined collection of furniture, found objects, and textiles can be found in a sun-drenched showroom on West 37th St; a respite from midtown below. Since in-person shopping isn’t an option for the time being, check out Mark’s website for all of the fab offerings.

— As shelter-in-place restrictions begin to ease, you’re likely craving a getaway. Stayner Architects is pleased to announce that they are re-opening the Wave House for weekend stays starting in June, geared specifically towards regional guests who are looking for a safe respite from quarantine. For $1100, guests can stay at the Wave House from Thursday through Sunday.  The house comes fully stocked with provisions for the weekend (including wine from Tilda, Stayner Architects’ sister business in LA).  During the week, the house is fully sanitized and re-stocked!

— This is the perfect opportunity to spruce up your outdoor space. We love Tidelli, a Brazilian outdoor brand known for producing iconic and durable designs. Each piece is handmade using nautical rope and other high-quality materials. The Bora Bora collection is a Rue favorite!

— We just discovered Maison of Hand. The brand features a wonderful selection of products that are all handmade by Tunisian artisans, like furniture, lighting, and home accessories. Bring a bit of Mediterranean charm to your space. (Bonus – they’ve got 20% off for Memorial Day!)

— You need to know about Robert Hazel! This natural (vegan and cruelty-free) fragrance line has the most charming backstory. Founder Mark Hart created a fragrance for his family as a Christmas gift. It was a hit, and he decided to start a company as a way as a way to honor the memory of his grandparents and tell the stories of their life and the legacy of my family. The fragrances are all unisex and capture the essence of feelings and memories from times past. 

— Take a moment of pause and purpose for yourself this weekend with… Pause + Purpose! Access guided meditation sessions that are curated by leading wellness experts. Each session is designed to practice true mindfulness through guided readings, meditations, writings and discussions with small groups of 10 or less. Due to COVID-19, these sessions cannot be held in-person for the time being, but remain just as empowering virtually.
