From kids’ rooms to master abodes, Simmons Beautyrest Classic models cushion lumbars in luxurious fabrics packed with 800 tightly pocketed coil springs to repress motion transfer from flip-flopping bedmates and ornery teddy bears. Snoozers can embark on sleep sessions aboard the firm and supportive Stephanie model or sink into the plush and cushy Aliyah fit, each reaching heights of 11–14 inches. Simmons's no-flip design ensures even wear and prevents the necessity to make your pet sasquatch sleep on the floor.

Since 1967, the Pia family has owned and operated The Fashion Valet, where they clean, alter, and preserve garments using green cleaning techniques. They offer pickup and drop-off services, which grant customers the option to leave their unkempt clothing at home, in the office, or draped over nearby scarecrows. In addition to purifying grimy duds, the Pias hand press delicate apparel to safely eliminate wrinkles and give items a professionally finished look.
Locals may have noticed that Lazzoni has grown into a family of 20-plus stores, but the company’s roots actually reach back more than 50 years and thousands of miles away. The first store was in Turkey, where they produced joinery pieces for windows and doors. They eventually got into the business of modular kitchen design, which evolved into the production of made-from-scratch and exclusive furniture for every room of the home.
Today, the brand has settled into a decidedly modern style. With a team of international designers from Turkey, Italy, and the United States, Lazzoni showcases original furniture made from Italian leathers, Austrian hardware, and Turkish textiles. The collection is marked by streamlined silhouettes, bold colors, and other contemporary touches: Andel armchairs shaped from clear polycarbonate get a pop of color from a seat cushion in one of 10 hues, and the simplistic Florence bed can be dressed in an elegant textile to match your favorite tuxedo pajamas.
Clients unsure of where to start with Lazzoni’s extensive inventory can request personal design services. Designers use blueprints or measurements from an in-home consultation to create a computerized 3D rendering in which homeowners can preview different pieces of furniture. The Lazzoni team also does staging for customers looking to sell their home or those who have recently kicked a furniture allergy.
Though he doesn't wear an actual crown, Bruce Wiener has earned the title of Bed King thanks to his family's long-standing business and his in-depth knowledge of what makes a high-quality mattress. Still, he rules with a fair hand. At his store, he and his staff share the three things customers need to know when buying a mattress: how it feels, how it's built inside, and what their budget is. They advise customers to test out each mattress by lounging on it for 15 minutes, examining its comfort, support structure, and willingness to share bedtime stories. They also arm customers with know-how on the latest technologies, demystifying industry jargon by explaining, for example, that coil systems impart equal weight distribution over the surface of the bed.
