Our days are punctuated by scouting new talent, attending market appointments, and scrolling Instagram in an effort to unearth the products, people, and news you actually need to know. Here’s what we Slacked one another about this week.

Perfect Fit: Maude x Piecework

Tackling a puzzle is my version of meditation; something about finding that perfect fit just clears my head. But because doing the same one over and over is no fun, I’ll be the first to order Piecework’s latest collaboration with sexual-wellness brand Maude (known for its streamlined vibrator and expertly packaged lube): Bottoms Up. The 500-piece puzzle, featuring a moody image shot by photographer Carl Ostberg, hit the company’s site just in time for cozy fall nights in. And because it pictures an epic aperitivo hour, it only makes sense to pair it with a cocktail. Edith Rousselot, editorial intern

Clean Sweep: Dedcool Detergent

Once a week, I air-dry my yoga towel and delicates in my apartment, letting the detergent scent linger through the living room as they dry. Call it a home-fragrance hack. But when I swapped my usual detergent for Dedcool’s Dedtergent 05 Spring—a mix of bergamot, lavender, and patchouli—my home smelled chicer than if I’d lit 100 fancy candles.

Print Perfect: Ken Fulk x Pierre Frey

I was always a history nerd as a child, especially when it came to ancient civilizations, and French textile brand Pierre Frey’s new collaboration with interior designer Ken Fulk is bringing that love back. In all its theatrical goodness, the Surreal World collection offers whimsy for walls, drapes, and even upholstery. My favorite print, Stoned Romans, depicts portraits of the historic emperors that hang on Fulk’s studio walls. Inspired by Salvador Dalí’s masquerade balls and Brutalist architecture, the launch is not for the faint of heart. —Kate McGregor, associate design editor

Cali Cool: Sea Ranch Lodge Reopening 

On a recent vacation to Northern California, I had the good fortune to visit the newly reopened Sea Ranch Lodge after its much anticipated restoration. Originally built in 1963, the innovative community’s building principles prioritize sustainable design, existing in complete harmony with nature—so you know eating dinner in the lodge’s solarium while taking in breathtaking views of coastal bluffs at sunset was a highlight. With swoon-worthy interiors by Charles de Lisle, iconic graphics by Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, and a general store filled with local goods, it is seriously a not-to-miss design destination. —Megan West, head of creative studio and brand 

Wave Rider: Mami Wata

It feels like every week a new streetwear brand hits the scene, leaving me no choice but to add to my already toppling T-shirt collection. But just-launched-in-the-U.S. Mami Wata (the name translates to “Mother Ocean” in West African pidgin) falls into its own category of cool; I mean, just look at its patterned surfboards. There’s a reason the shop is so unique: It’s the first African surf lifestyle brand ever. Founded by friends and featuring exclusively African creators, patterns, and materials, the collection truly is a labor of love. I’ll be kicking off my obsession by ordering this graphic tee to tuck into Levi’s for a casual weekend vibe. And might I add, the coffee-table book would make the perfect gift. —Julia Stevens, associate style editor

A Real Softy: Saunders Studio

I couldn’t hit forward fast enough when the announcement for designer Jonathan Saunders’s new homewares collection, Saunders Studio, arrived in my in-box. There are squiggly “S” candles and trippy striped blankets, but it was the giant fringe-edged suede cushions in shades like ochre and emerald that really got me—just looking at them on a screen is a mood booster, let alone owning one. —Lindsey Mather, editorial director, home
