Fans can select the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, or college team logo and pattern of their choice to dress up a Stainmaster rug, which ties together rec-room decor and amply covers hatches to dungeons imprisoning opponents? mascots. All rugs consist of 100% Stainmaster nylon and ward off germs with antibacterial properties. A 10-year warranty ensures the carpets will last longer than most winning streaks or World Series curses.
When it was founded in 1987, Frame Central was a social hub for artists, and was even curiously named for facial hair. However, Beard Outlet has since morphed into a seven-location franchise, dedicated to simplifying the framing process. The shops’ onsite stock of matboard, frame moulding, and other key supplies ensures speedy DIY framing projects—which visitors can complete in an hour—and single-day professional framing. An array of pre-framed mirrors and artwork allows shoppers to enhance their blank walls without taping a napping friend to them. Shoppers can also stock up on framing supplies such as case glass and hanging hardware.
Since equipping the world with its first wood-slat recliner in 1928, La-Z-Boy has branded itself as a well-known producer of high-quality furniture, including their signature recliner, loveseats, ottomans, upholstered sofas, accent tables, and much more.

A host of recliners, sofas, sectionals, the demi stationary chair and sleepers are also waiting to invade homes with their tasteful presence.
