At artéé fabrics & home, a customer’s vision for a piece of furniture can truly become a reality. Headed by 20-year industry veteran Arti Bhandari Mehta, the staff can draft, design, and build the customer’s envisioned piece and upholster it with a handpicked fabric. These fabrics—which can also be used to make custom draperies and bedding—are the main attraction at artéé, where wall-to-wall racks are draped with thousands of cottons, chenilles, velvets, mohairs, and linens. They arrange their fabrics by color so that clients can easily find fabrics that fit the color palette with which they are working. The showroom also houses yarn, pillow stuffers, and accessories to complement the rich swatches of fabric on display.

Gravity holds no sway over visitors at Sky Zone Providence. Upon donning a pair of SkySocks, customers step onto a patented, wall-to-wall trampoline to bid the ground farewell. The bouncy surfaces stretch to the walls, where trampolines set at 45-degree angles let kids and adults repeatedly soar through the air like a superhero trying to wrack up frequent flier miles. Staff also mixes organized sports into the jumping equation by hosting games of dodgeball inside the trampoline arena.

Though Breathing Time Yoga is housed within an old jewelry textile mill built in the 1800s, its classes hearken back to an even earlier time. Beneath the lofty 20-foot ceilings, seasoned instructors?many of whom have completed several hundred hours of teacher training?practice ancient poses and breathing exercises designed to promote strength, flexibility, and inner peace. During heated yoga classes, they turn up the infrared heating system to deepen stretches, help bodies sweat out toxins, and prevent arctic penguins from waddling in and interrupting class. Within this communal practice area illuminated by the sunlight drifting through the oversize windows, they also host non-heated classes that explore the breath-fueled sequences of Vinyasa-style yoga and the lengthy, alignment-focused poses of the Iyengar tradition.

In addition to leading yoga routines for students of all levels, the instructors supply free spring water, tea, and props. Mats are available for a $2 rental fee. After class, they encourage students to socialize in the reception room or browse the onsite library. Those interested in bolstering their mind-body connections may also schedule private meetings with a certified yoga therapist or personal coaching from yoga teachers.

While she was traveling back and forth from the Northeast to the Midwest every week, Mari Vivace found herself frustrated by her lack of makeup, or rather, her lack of makeup she needed. She actually owned enough makeup to fill a suitcase, but she didn't want to cart it all around like some sort of pageant queen who moonlights as a RuPaul impersonator. Yet, that's what she would have to do if she was ever going to have the right products to create a soft daytime and a more vibrant nighttime look. She finally realized that if she was ever going to get multipurpose makeup, she'd have to create it herself. And thus, Inspiration Cosmetics was born.

Today, Inspiration Cosmetics' products streamline the makeup process. Things like the paraben-free 3-in-1 Stick, which can be used as a blush, lipstick, and eyeshadow, and the Lip Twins cylinder, which contains both a lipstick and a matching liner, make getting ready in the morning even faster. The website offers tips for applying each product, and Inspiration Cosmetics even has a cadre of makeup artists who video chat with clients to teach them how to design the perfect look for work or a night out on the town.
