At Braden’s Lifestyle Furniture, chairs, sofas, and beds in styles ranging from classical to modern have beckoned eyes and enticed tired feet for more than half a century. The dressers, kitchen tables, and shelves come from well-known manufacturers such as Stickley, Bernhardt, Sherrill, and Theodore Alexander and sit comfortably atop the store’s collection of oriental rugs, one of the largest in the south. The company’s friendly professionals share their expertise as they assist clients—who include three UT basketball coaches—in developing color schemes for living rooms, bedrooms, or attics being lavishly redecorated to appease household ghosts.

Homeowners can request a technician to build a patio deck, add a new addition to the home, or even solicit an interior designer for onsite decoration advice. The company boasts an arsenal of professional equipment and can call on its faithful dump truck, large excavator, and mini excavator to get the job done.
The professionals from Black Lock Seal Coating augment homeowners’ battle against the elements by repairing worn-down driveways. Each project focuses on treatments that beautify the property, protect it from future damage, and increase its value. The experts arrive promptly and go about their work efficiently, restoring asphalt to a smooth and black surface and eavesdropping neighbors clinging to home exteriors.
