With 45 years of wicker-weaving experience, Ridge Rattan decorates homes and apartments with its own original pieces and other furnishings from well-known brands. Living up to their legacy as rattan workers and antique-basketball-hoop designers, the talented craftsmen fill floor space with handsome cane work in pieces such as a 20"x17" rattan bench ($250) or a 24-inch rattan glass-top end table ($175). Enhance a drab bedroom or den with elegant items from notable labels, such as armoires from American Drew and Lane Venture or sofa sets from Norwalk and Braxton Culler. Ridge Rattan also cradles bodies with seats made in-house, such as Mackey chairs ($300) and custom stools ($197), both personalized with the shopper's choice of finish, fabric, and hidden booby traps.
For more than 45 years, Unclaimed Freight's family of owners has stocked their expansive showroom with household furniture and mattresses from trusted brands. They can peddle designer merchandise at discount prices thanks to the fact that they purchase closeouts, canceled orders, discontinued products, and armoires that were mistakenly declared haunted. Mattresses from Therapedic and Spring Air slide into sturdy bed frames, while upholstered and leather couches in a variety of styles pair with occasional tables from Ashley or Harden.
After adoring the eclectic style of city boutiques, Pamela Kramer opened Urban Essentialz, a shop packed with funky housewares, gifts, and fashion. Bath products from Pre de Provence pamper with quadruple-milled French soaps ($6.95/250g) and organic shave soap ($18), the preferred cheek-smoother of Rip Van Winkle. Stylistas can browse a huge selection of scarves and accessories, such as a bright pashmina ($22.50) and bold jewelry ($18+). Home goods, such as a pewter table clock ($24.50) and a hand-painted curio chest ($36), blend practicality with style, and a window-mounted Swarovski crystal rainbow maker ($27.95) casts rainbows on walls to brighten rooms or summon a legion of battle-ready Care Bears.
The Harris Garden Center evolved from the Harris Seed Company, a Rochester gardening authority since 1879, and it continues to uphold a high horticultural standard through a wide variety of annuals, vegetables, and supplies. The store showcases more than 10 themed Christmas trees, including traditional, Adirondack, and sports-centric saplings. Confuse tree bark by hanging a bulldog ornament ($2.75) from its limbs or let a sports-figure ornament ($6.99) display impossible athletic ability as it stays suspended in the air. Other ornamental options include ballet slippers ($3.99), wine bottles ($4.99–$12.99), and an acutely shrunken school bus ($5.49).
