Ariana Roviello is the one behind Laundré, a one-stop shop where you can sit back with a cup of coffee while you do your laundry. That means you don’t have to be stuck in one of those regular laundromats that generally has about three uncomfortable seats in it and zero places to relax. Roviello’s design-focused concept is located in San Francisco and their goal was to create an open and inviting space where one could catch up on some work or grab a coffee with a friend, all while washing your clothes. So, instead of it feeling like a chore, it becomes much more of an event.
Laundré houses a full-scale coffee bar, communal seating, and sustainable laundry equipment from Electrolux that lets you wash + dry you clothes in just 45 minutes total. Plus, the soap is free with every wash and their app keeps you posted as to when your clothes are finished.
Besides all of the amenities, the laundromat/coffee bar features a scaled-back aesthetic for a fresh, clean feel.
