For more than two decades, American Mattress has promoted peaceful slumber in bedchambers throughout the Midwest with their vast selection of mattresses, headboards, and linens. The sleep experts strive to stay abreast of the latest bedding technology: their Serta mattresses are made with gel foam that supports curves, and Tempur-Pedic mattresses repel allergens, mites, and poltergeists looking to spoon. This devotion to a good night’s sleep has helped them earn the title of Best Mattress Store from suburban Chicago’s Daily Herald five years in a row. Additionally, American Mattress doubles down on each of its beds with a 30-day comfort guarantee and a 60-day best-price guarantee.

Babes N'Brushes' pink-clad cast of all-female painters, muralists, and artists executes home-design services with design-savvy eyes and steady brushes. The concept is the brainchild of the company's two founders, Matt and Pamela. Matt, the company's president, is a certified designer whose work has been featured on HGTV. He helms the company with director of operations Pamela Bender, who was inspired to enter the traditionally male-centric field of painting after spending her childhood on a farm working with her hands and watching her mother help run the family farm.
Matt and Pamela make sure each employee is fully trained before sending them to homes to paint interiors and exteriors, refinish cabinets, and hand paint walls and canvases. Large project may include professional design and color consults, and a two-year guarantee to ensure that customers will be compensated if a mural starts coming to life and chewing on the furniture. In support of women suffering from breast cancer, the company donates proceeds from every job to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast-cancer research.

Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
