Five must-have products to start the fall season with a clean slate

A fresh scent, a wardrobe staple, and other goodies to mark new beginnings

The start of a season is a new beginning; it’s the perfect time to freshen up an old routine, revive a space, and invest in a few statement pieces. At WeWork Now, WeWork’s first on-demand coworking space (902 Broadway in New York’s Flatiron neighborhood), you’ll find a host of items that appropriately mark autumn’s start. Think: a curated collection of member-made products, ethical crafts, and curated gifts that you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. We’ve rounded up a few fashionable favorites below.

A new wardrobe staple. Hold on to the last licks of summer with this uniquely festive handmade bucket bag from Suryo. The crocheted “Bucket of Pearls” tote endures every season; it evokes the sun of summertime but will also come in handy when those holiday parties start popping up, which will happen sooner than you think. The brand has delivered several other styles of handmade bags and jewelry worth browsing. $142

The most thoughtful housewarming gift. Small spaces call for resourceful design, so if you’re in the market for  new drinking glasses but you aren’t working with a big kitchen, this stackable set is your ticket. Beyond their compactness, Doiy Design Saguro glasses are sweet to look at, adding color to any bar cart. Pair the set with your favorite bottle as a stellar housewarming gift, and snag a second cactus for yourself, because you know you want one. $44 for a set of four

A fresh scent for fall. These beautiful Le Feu de L’eau candles are sculpted entirely of wax. When the candle has burned to its end, it can be repurposed. The brand suggests cleaning out the container out and potting a plant, which could certainly brighten up a desk or workspace. $65 each

A clean slate. Your yoga mat saw a ton of sweat this summer, and it seems no amount of scrubbing will render it clean. This beautiful Doiy terrazzo print mat will reinvigorate your practice, and its crispness will have you feeling zen even before you reach Shavasana. $40

Something to revive your inner explorer. Sure, you could design your next trip around the advice of online strangers. Alternatively, you could leave it to the experts. Lost In’s city guides share low-key itineraries that help you get to really know a city—meaning they’re tourist-trap-free. Plus, every edition makes for a great coffee-table book, stacked or solo. $12 each
