As we approach the end of summer, friends and family return home from their travels with new lessons and intriguing stories of their adventures in their pockets. For some, coming home is returning to a physical space imbued in safety and comfort, a place they have always known, a place they feel rooted in, a residence, a house. Yet this neglects the subtle truth that home does not exclusively live within physical or geographical boundaries.
Home goes beyond materiality. It is fluid, wavering, versatile. It can change over time and move in space, traveling across the globe, manifesting in objects impregnated with story and meaning. It can be embodied by life-long friends or by strangers we’ve just met. For some, coming home means family, roots, history. Home is a country in which you feel anchored, a culture that embraces you. Home is a routine, made up of specific rituals that bring you grounding and balance. Home is a person with whom you share your life. Home is a book or a song that brings you back to yourself. Homeis your body, your sense of self. We defined reîa as a home (casa) and are committed to fostering this intangible feeling that is so difficult to define, yet decipherable in its uniqueness, doing so through high quality ingredients and nourishing meals, faces that feel familiar even if they’re not, a clean yet comfortable design and musical and sensorial experiences that transport you back to your essence and connection to others?
