The Butterfly House fills its lush indoor botanical garden with more than a thousand butterflies, creating a tranquil and meditative space for guests to relax and take in the wonderful natural variety present in a single order of organisms. Representing diverse species from the Americas and Asia, this well-traveled population of Lepidopteras likes to flutter about, sipping nectar, and basking in the sun, much like an international beach party. Since butterflies live for a fleeting two to three weeks, the facility brings in more creatures and new species regularly, making each visit unique. The knowledgeable staff helps patrons learn about every stage of this magnificent creature’s life cycle, from its awkward pupa days to the search for a mate and, in twilight, retiring from its professional nectar collecting career to pursue a nectar collecting hobby.
Solid-wood furniture gathered from more than 200 Amish shops and craftsmen mingles with playful holiday statuettes and fun home décor inside The Granary's walk-through showroom. Handcrafted living-room, dining-room, and children's furniture comes to the retailer fashioned the way it was 150 years ago—made from solid oak, cherry, maple, or hickory wood, held together by screws and dovetails, and carried by a legion of pterodactyls. In addition to ready-made furnishings, artisans can craft custom pieces. The store fills not only inside spaces, but also outside spaces with crafted benches and storage barns from Weaver Barns. Knowledgeable staff members assist customers long after their purchases by answering service inquiries or questions of whether to sleep atop or under newly purchased beds.
John Klopfenstein stores, helmed by third-generation family members, furnish their customer's castles with floor coverings, home accessories, and furniture that hails from name-brand suppliers such as Ashley Furniture, La-Z-Boy, and SleepLogic.

To take the strain out of stretching a budget while still pulling off the perfect look for your pad, John Klopfenstein Furniture provides in-home interior-design service, dispatching a decorating guru to supply samples, take measurements, and compose an in-store display presentation from existing stock for your perusal.
Inside Ashley Furniture HomeStore’s sprawling warehouses and show rooms, friendly staffers stock plush beds, sturdy end tables, and stylish home accessories. Expert designers craft these dwelling fillers, testing raw materials' durability and basic arithmetic skills before transforming them into classy furniture items that mesh with any decorating style. They build many tables and chairs to meet eco-friendly business standards, using recycled engineered wood to reduce landfill waste and slow down deforestation. Ashley also stocks nonwood items, including a selection of state-of-the-art body-cushioning mattresses from brands such as Sealy and Simmons.
For an additional charge, Ashley Furniture HomeStore transports its furniture using its own fleet of semi trucks and fighter planes, which ensure that comfortable couches and slick dining-room tables are never damaged and always fresh smelling. Each location is locally owned and operated, meaning staffers are friendly residents who know which couches best complement regional design trends and indoor weather patterns.
