At Ormond Salon & Boutique, owner and stylist Debbie Edwards leads her multitalented staff as they create a tranquil environment where visitors can achieve both relaxation and beautification. After verbal consultations that pin down clients’ hairdo aspirations, the salon’s stylists restore luster to coiffures with calculated snips paired with Redken and Matrix products. Aestheticians administer anti-aging facials and safeguard skin with Solise sunscreen that staves off potentially damaging sunrays, while massage therapists go hand-to-hand against bodily aches. Ormond Salon & Boutique’s menu also includes nail services that dignify digits with French polish applied with a baguette.
The Furniture Gallery's staff draws upon 40 years in business as they pilot patrons among mattress sets, home accents, and reclinables with fabrics and light hues targeted to Floridian decorators. Brands such as Broyhill, Sealy, and ChromCraft call out from across the vast sales savannah of home accents and lamps ($50+), and American-made recliners ($299+) excitedly wag tails at passersby. Guests can take a queen-size pillow-top mattress set ($499) for a test run or upgrade to memory foam ($699) to enjoy a deep sleep without hosting meetings for ovine actuaries. If the store’s substantial inventory of decorator sofas ($599+) doesn’t pique interest, special orders reinvent pieces with thousands of different fabrics, colors, and textures that please even indecisive chameleons.
Mattress1One's immense inventory brims with top-quality slumbering surfaces from renowned brands such as Tempur-Pedic, Serta, Sealy, and Stearns & Foster. At multiple locations throughout Florida, knowledgeable staff members roam showrooms that brim with an array of mattresses forged from such materials as memory foam, high-tech innersprings, silk, and cashmere. They also curate an online Mattress 101 guide, which includes handy tips on selecting the ideal mattress size, keeping the mattress in tiptop shape, and mounting a rock-solid legal defense in case you accidentally rip the tags off.
Like most success stories, Leader's Casual Furniture didn't start at the top. Founded in a single west Florida show room in 1971, the company now boasts 19 retail show rooms, a 150,000-square-foot distribution center, and an ever-increasing selection of rattan, wicker, and patio furniture. Upon browsing the virtual show room, visitors find rattan dining sets, beds, and entertainment centers as well as wicker tables with stone or glass tops. Custom fabrics and tropical-themed pieces add personal flair to interiors or exteriors, and an online room planner helps customers get a feel for how chosen pieces will fit into their homes.
Twin brothers Tom and Rusty Bolton both have a pedigree in furniture, as both have been managing Wood You Furniture franchises in separate markets since the 1980s. That longtime experience has fueled their love of real-wood furnishings, giving them an opportunity to bring the community long-lasting furniture less likely to end up in landfills as well as the chance for the pair to grow a business together. Their store decorates interiors with sofas, bedroom sets, and accessories made from finely crafted solid wood, shunning the likes of particleboard for sturdy planes of alder and parawood. Bolstered by the design skills and artistic eye of fellow team member Faith, tasteful displays fill the showroom and help customers envision what their homes would look like with each piece inside. Patios and gardens also become inviting venues for backyard barbecues with umbrellas and benches, and kids' playrooms blend utility and whimsy with a selection of tyke-size desks and bunk beds. The store’s furniture and accessories also extend to designs made for home offices, living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, and secret passages that deserve better aesthetics.
