The Marleybone entertainment center ($1,605+) swathes the customer's plasma television in style, and the 60-inch English farmhouse table ($1,080+) allows levitating plates a brief moment of respite. British Traditions’ 20 unique finishes, ranging from hand-applied English wax to distressed alternatives, allows patrons to customize individual pieces to their personal taste and décor.
The blossom virtuosos at Flowers By Emily add floral flourish to any occasion by whipping up both predesigned and custom arrangements.

Custom Masonry's chimney experts have been unclogging and patching up flues for more than 18 years. Using equipment tailor-made to treat several architecture types, the professional employees scrutinize and purge masonry fireplaces, furnace flues, and metal factory systems of potentially harmful blockage.

Founded by Ken Euston in 1971, Euston Hardware's old-fashioned legacy continues under the helm of Ken's son. Kevin, who has since grown the shops into three locations, keeps the shelves packed with more than 65,000 items for homes, landscaping, and automobiles. Experts chat with customers to help them to tackle projects from changing a car's oil to painting their house solid green so it can be replaced with a CGI castle. Home-improvement tools, which include items for the kitchen and bath, keep domiciles functioning at their best. The friendly staff can also guide green thumbs to lawn and garden supplies or help them select the right locks and outdoor equipment to keep their tools from escaping and impersonating the local robocop.
Employing a quarter-century of experience, the floral artists at Matney Floral Design meticulously craft detailed and elegant English garden bouquets that accentuate the beauty of homes with seasonal varieties and intriguing arrangements. With Easter and Mother's Day fast approaching, customers can treat motherly rabbits to a 6-inch rose bowl housing gerbera daisies, tulips, lilies, spray roses, and seasonal green stock ($50) or an 8-inch rose bowl that uses its extra inches to include ranunculus, hydrangeas, viburnum, and freesia ($75). Curly willows line the sides of a 6-inch square vase, which gently cushions roses and other seasonal flora like a kangaroo pouch cradling a newborn Joey Lawrence (starting at $100).
