An affordable and monumental selection of plush beds, sturdy end tables, and stylish home accessories mingle good-naturedly in Ashley Furniture HomeStore’s showroom.

Ashley Furniture's wide selection of tables includes the Anton pub table, which comes with four modern barstools, and the 24-inch Carlyle swivel bar stools ($88.99), which provide rotating vantage points for libation lovers. Matrix accent chairs basking in the glow of Mable antique gold lamps ($78.99) charm empty corners with their modern faux-leather finishes. Sleep-supporting Allendale sofas made from genuine leather ($998.99) and Key Town queen poster canopy beds ($798.99) help insomniacs to catch some z’s without bobbing in alphabet soup.
Bead Bar's bead baristas guide jewelry crafters with a wealth of bauble knowledge, provisioning projects from the amply stocked store. Students can bring their own spirited refreshments to make sessions merrier, journeying past bead-bedazzled walls and cascades of clasps to reach the workshop, where they'll discover the basics of jewelry creation during basic stringing and crimping classes (click here to view the schedule). After pupils choose one of five bracelet kits—which include a clasp, four fire-ball beads, finishing beads, wire, wire guards, and a strand of firepolish beads—instructors model foundational stringing techniques and imbue new crafters with a sense of symmetry and color combinations. Bracelet makers learn how to highlight feature beads and artfully select accent beads, then take an oath to use filler beads only for fighting crimes of bare-wristedness. To bring closure to both classes and adornments, the staff imparts advice on selecting clasps to make sure bracelets can't leave wrists or ankles without asking permission first.
