Maryland China Co. has a long tradition of ordering fine china pieces from around the world: over a century long, in fact. Today, the staff maintains the shop's reputation by carefully vetting every item in the 1,250-piece collection, which comes from eight countries and four planets. Quality is paramount, so the shop demotes items to the seconds room for minute imperfections, such as slight color variation. A single piece of hand-painted china, such as a cup and saucer decorated with intricate loops and whorls, can take hours to complete. Full tea sets, then, celebrate the careful craftsmanship and leisurely traditions of the Old World.
Despite the large selection of hand-painted wares, undecorated white china and porcelain vases, pots, cups, and bowls dominate the shelves. Sometimes designed with ornate details, such as scalloped edges or antique-style handles, the items are otherwise blank slates for artists. Customers can purchase a small paint set with their china to transform it into a modern work of art with colorful chevrons or 2011 1040 forms.

Maryland Kitchen Cabinets’ stunning display of kitchen appliances and accoutrements beautify and streamline the home hearth with beautiful panels of hickory and oak and slabs of polished stone. The brick-and-mortar store and online emporium are stocked with finely made remodeling materials, such as countertops of granite and quartz or cabinets from Waypoint Living Spaces, meticulously tested to withstand the stresses of everyday use, from the regular opening and closing of drawers to repeated use of cupboard doors as portals to Narnia. Custom molding designs crown bathroom and kitchen fixtures, and appliances such as shiny new dishwashers, oven ranges, and trash compactors ease household tasks.
The renovation specialists at Elegance Cabinets help clients create their ideal kitchens. They start by providing samples–either at the showroom or inside the customer's home–that will help clients determine their desired cabinet style and configuration. After an aesthetic has been chosen, specialists inspect and measure every square inch of the existing kitchen, charting the space and noting how many units will be needed and how many secret tunnels have to be sealed. Next, they head to the drawing board where they'll draft up an installation plan. Once that's complete, the client will receive a detailed blueprint of the space along with a 3D mock-up that provides a preview of what the room will look like in the coming weeks. Finally, they'll install dream kitchens and haul away the old and busted cabinets that have now become obsolete.
