With a showroom full of materials and an impressive body of work that hangs in buildings such as the Trump Tower, Creative Edge helps clients turn bare walls into conversation pieces. Each Creative Edge consultant brings at least 10 years of professional experience to projects, ensuring that every frame perfectly complements its portrait, landscape, or recursive picture of picture frames. These experts also handle 3-D projects, creating shadowbox showpieces for items such as plates, sports memorabilia, medals, and dried flowers. Before settling on a design, clients can peruse the showroom to get creative juices flowing. The showroom offers samples of more than 3,000 different mouldings made from materials that range from classic solid woods to reclaimed roofing supplies, and the gallery features fine-art lithographs, giclées, and original multimedia pieces.
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.
Central Rug & Carpet Co., Inc. traces its roots back to 1925 when it first opened its 5,000-square-foot showroom. Today, that space features a variety of high-quality carpets and more than 700 rugs hanging on racks for easy viewing. Their selection of wool and silk rugs on display includes traditional Persian and Pakistani rugs, as well as ones from the Wools of New Zealand brand. Their inventory includes both hand- and machine-woven products in contemporary styles as well as a multitude of Tibetan rugs. When they aren’t selling floor coverings, the store’s experts are cleaning and repairing them. Insured technicians can show up at homes to oust grime from carpets or tend to rugs in-house to remove guacamole and salsa stains caused by trying to transform the living-room rug into a burrito.
