Sleep Outfitters' savvy sleep experts help slumber lovers find peaceful shuteye with a wide selection of name brand mattresses. Adroit sleep Sherpas lead bedtime cravers round the mountains of Sealy, Serta, Simmons, Stearns & Foster, and Tempur-Pedic mattresses, pausing to take in cushions of solid foam, bouncing innersprings, and a conspicuous lack of "Smoke On the Water" beds. Rest your noggin on a Serta Memory Foam queen-size mattress set ($597), or repose your tired torso on a Simmons Beautyrest Classic Plush queen-size mattress set ($1,199). Once somnolent souls have selected a mattress on which to paint their dreamscapes, they can opt into Sleep Outfitters' five-star delivery service, where burly mattress gods deliver and set up mattresses and remove old bedding. Indecisive catnappers enjoy the comforts of the 30-night comfort guarantee that permits two fortnights in which to decide if the right choice was made, ensuring hibernating humans won't be left with nightmares starring jilted futons and vengeful box springs.

Lexington Overstock bedecks every room of the house with an emporium of craftsman-quality furnishings. Chic padded barstools elevate four-person eating squads in an Aaron dining set ($225), and an antiqued cherry British Old World map writing desk inlaid with an old-world map ($258) insists that Columbus was right all along. Bedroom sets such as the Coventry Cannonball ($68–$998) accessorize dreams with solid wood. Living-room residents can imagine themselves on the open range thanks to the rich nail-head accents on a Ranger-Canyon recliner ($398), before bedtime beckons from an Ashley Sleep memory-foam mattress ($448+), which evokes billowy sheep bred for counting with a fluffy mix of synthetic and all-natural stuffing.
