Dayton Discount Furniture Warehouse's low-overhead business model of stocking truckloads of name-brand mattresses and furniture directly from manufacturers unites homes with top-quality sleeping surfaces without muss or fuss. Like mint-condition sets of Supreme Court action figures, each fully warranted item in the spacious 4,000-square-foot warehouse arrives fresh in its original packaging, proudly boasting labels from well-known furnishers such as Serta, Lane, and Simmons. Friendly mattress wranglers and chair curators tend to a menagerie of household wares, filling chambers with sturdy, comfortable furnishings and suitable surfaces for putting in eight-hour sleeping shifts.
Knickerbocker Gallery is a family-owned showroom whose copious inventory of furniture and home-decorating accessories has been used to furnish upscale home showcases such as Homearama. Empty space and wall safes containing rare sandwiches can be covered with framed prints ($49–$389) displaying such artful imagery as cups of espresso ($49), sun-dappled wine fields ($63), and reclining nudes of famous yetis (bidding starts at $500,000). Table lamps (starting at $29) and buffet lamps (starting at $59) will bring less spooky luminescence into any enclosure than a common candelabra. Fouled fowls and mud-wrestling squirrels, meanwhile, can wash up in an exquisite iron birdbath ($49). The Knickerbocker showroom also features a large variety of resplendent woodcraft dining room, office, and bedroom pieces.
