Working across 16 locations around Puget Sound, the friendly folks at Savvy Mattress Outlet showcase popular, name-brand mattresses from Simmons, Serta, and Sealy, aiming to help sleepers of all stripes find their ideal match. They also offer next- and same-day delivery service, during which hired staffers will remove your old mattress, take it for one last spin down the stairs, and break the hard news to the kids—who were originally told that it was going to a country farm filled with other mattresses.
True Beauty & Boutique is located just blocks from the oceanic vistas of Puget Sound. With the guidance of owner Tara Perkins, an aesthetics graduate with more than 15 years of experience, the spa’s skilled staff pampers guests with a lineup of nail and skin services, which includes facials, spa pedicures, lash extensions, and massages. Meanwhile, the boutique side of the business keeps waiting clients enthralled with a selection of scarves, jewelry, and lingerie from Twala Intimates.
Molbak's hooks casual gardeners up with a wide selection of flowers and the means to manipulate them. The spacious facility shelters rows of plant life—with new batches brought in daily from Molbak's 40-acre farm 3 miles up the road—then keeps them healthy with a clear glass roof that lets them bask in the sun's lustful stares. As the floral selection evolves throughout the seasons, you'll be able to spice up your lawn's stale sensory gumbo with a variety of annuals, perennials, trees, edibles, and houseplants. Flowers start at $9.99 and go as high as $119.99, and Molbak's growers will do their best to meet specific requests if you absolutely have to have that special flower to get past the Goombas surrounding your house. Deck horticultural halls with Molbak's myriad holiday plants and accessories. More than 35 varieties of poinsettias are available to lend a blushing brilliance to homes and haystack houses, while the nursery's 14-foot-tall poinsettia Christmas tree elicits tears of jealousy from mere evergreens. Other holiday goodies available for purchase and perusal include ornaments, tree trim, wreaths, and lights.
Richard Jamieson's childhood spent in his grandparent's log cabin had a strong influence on his career. It instills his pieces of hand-hewn furniture with a rustic, old-school aesthetic also displayed by the three NFL players who still wear a leather, facemaskless helmet. As a former USMC officer, renowned marksman, sawmill operator, and world traveler, the carpenter draws from a lifetime of adventure to create intricate latticework carvings and exotic monsoon wood.
As he shapes his materials into dinner tables, drawers, and bed posts, Jamieson animates an ecologically sustainable philosophy. He retrieves his wood from responsible sources such as salvaged teak, overshading mango trees, and invasive meh trees that overrun Javan rainforests without even offering to pay part of the rent. The designer infuses each piece with a masterful craftsmanship that can impart not only an artistic composition, but long-lasting solid wood construction. Jamieson adds strong dovetail joints and a 10-step hand-finishing process that protect the luxurious planks of tropical hardwood for years to come.
