Verlo’s made-to-order mattresses support sleeping frames in custom comfort. A uniquely personal approach connects customers face to face with the mattress builders themselves, who create tailor-made dream cushions based on customer preference for firmness, texture, and sheep-ceiling clearance. The Nova mattress and foundation set ($199–$299) keeps dozing chassis comfortable with a breathable cotton cover and patent-pending VertiCoil undergirding, with springs that conform to body contours to reduce tossing and turning. The Glory flip-free mattress ($339–$619) adds upholstery-grade polyurethane foam to the equation and caresses sleeping skin with luxurious damask cotton covers. Physiques achieve royal recumbence on the Symphony’s motion-transfer-absorbing latex sleep surface ($889–$1,719), and its 100% biodegradable bamboo cover wicks away moisture and provides a healthy snack for stuffed panda bears.
When brothers Joseph and Herb Guiry founded the paint store that bears their name, Denver was still an untamed frontier town, William McKinley was President, and the flag still had 45 stars and not a single cartoon dog. The year was 1899, and, in the hundred-plus years since, the store has remained a family tradition across four generations of shopkeepers. Today, the store’s seven locations carry paints for everything from houses to school projects, and supplement their stock with home decorations including lighting, wallpaper, and furniture.
At HW Home, owners Jim Hering and Ron Werner curate a luxurious collection of living-room, bedroom, and dining-room fixtures that have earned a slew of industry awards, including a Retailer of the Year title from the National Home Furnishings Association in 2013. Friendly, knowledgeable staff members guide shoppers through the selection of contemporary and classic chairs, sofas, beds, and tables from collections such as HW Interiors, Ralph Lauren, and DwellStudio. Their insight can help create ornate interiors filled with mahogany tables and leather upholstery or modern settings decorated with metal, glass, and nanobots. After purchasing their artisan buffet cabinet or bedroom set, customers can enlist the help of handy movers, who deliver, unwrap, and assemble all pieces.
At Urban Mattress, patrons can sprawl out on comfy, soporific mattresses from brands such as Sherwood, Tempur-Pedic, Lumina, and Urban Organics in search of firm billows. The owner-operated stores also offer sustainable options that leave little to no carbon footprint and are biodegradable, making future archaeologists' jobs easier when they go to uncover the cans of peas hidden under our beds. Two percent of all proceeds finds its way to local nonprofits, ensuring that customers can sleep better at night in more ways than one.
