Each of the 24" x 36" reversible Pawtucket rugs ($50) presents a one-of-a-kind work of art assembled from excess yarns and braids, capable of simultaneously appeasing eyes, bare feet, and plaintive floorboards. Outdoor spaces can take cover with a 48" x 48" Renaissance ($375), a reversible, stain-resistant square rug crafted entirely from Sunbrella acrylic fibers.

The expert textile technicians of My Laundry Hamper have lathered clothing with eco-friendly practices for more than 30 years, customizing washes to match guests' preferred detergents, drying temperatures, and folding techniques. After receiving a welcome kit with reusable laundry bags and stain-cleaning tips, patrons pick a laundry plan that works best around their routine and mud-wrestling schedule. My Laundry Hamper's drivers pick up soiled fabric from doorsteps and ferry it to the garment bathhouse, where suds fly and stains release their grip on threads. After one day, clothing returns to stoops, freshly folded or hung, gabbing on about all the friends it made and ghost stories it heard. In addition to washable fabrics, guests relinquish dry cleaning for the staff to spiff up with a gentle, nontoxic process.
My Laundry Hamper also displays social responsibility by streamlining donations for the Big Sisters of Rhode Island and being a proud supporter of the Women's Center of Rhode Island. Cleansers pick up the center's bed linens each week, taking care of the wash so that the staff can spend more quality time with the women and children under their roof.
