In 2003, longtime friends Joe Hornsby and Lisa Moore opened Liza Moz' Pottery Studio—the name adapted from a nicknamed bestowed on Lisa by her family. Lisa has since passed the business on to Joe solely, and creativity continues to flourish under his direction. Joe keeps the shop stocked with a variety of unfinished bisque ceramics cast into animal shapes, tiles, plates, and mugs, each available to be painted by visiting artists. After choosing a piece to work on, visitors may paint freehand or find inspiration by consulting the shop's library of stencil collections and idea books. Artists then sketch their designs and paint their pottery with a choice of more than 50 hues. The studio’s instructors also guide students through other artistic projects beyond ceramics, such as painting canvases, tiling mosaics, and making candles. Groups holding parties can bring their own snacks and drinks to the studio, and summer camp sessions guide children through creative projects with clay, glass, or paint.
For more than 20 years, the knowledgeable staff members at World Futon have helped pair customers with compact, easily assembled futons crafted from hardwood, metal, and logs. The showroom boasts storable futons and accouterments such as thick-foam mattresses, canvas covers, and unwanted houseguests, and the sleep emporium assists shoppers in erecting newly purchased items with an assembly help page. Bunk beds and bed frames stretch out for fold-free dozing, and solid wood nightstands and dressers teach pet woodpeckers lessons in restraint.
For more than 30 years, MurMaid Mattress has culled an extensive arsenal of mattresses from both top-brand manufacturers and from its own, onsite factory. The shop has garnered the title of Best Mattress Store from readers of the Chattanooga Times Free Press multiple times. At seven locations throughout the Tennessee Valley, its staffers navigate sprawling showrooms that brim with memory-foam mattresses and adjustable beds from brands such as Serta and Tempur-Pedic. It procures its inventory directly from such manufacturers, working to keep its prices affordable and to ensure no under-the-bed monsters were damaged during travel. The store's immense stash of products also includes MurMaid Mattress’s own creations, assembled at an onsite factory affixed to the Cleveland location. Staffers produce custom, made-to-order mattresses from materials used by national brands.
