Like fancy suits, sofa sets are sewn from the same cut of fabric. These matching sets provide a well-rounded look in living rooms, but near misses tend to clash due to their small differences. At 20 show rooms throughout the western US, Mor Furniture for Less arranges complete-room sets so customers can envision the collections in their own homes. Furniture for living rooms, dining rooms, and children's rooms can be found in each store along with individual lamps, tables, and entertainment centers. The stores also carry complete sets of beds, dressers, and nightstands so that homeowners don’t receive criticism from design bloggers in their dreams.
Although most chefs have their own unique style of peeling, dicing, and julienning veggies, they all have one thing in common: they each require precise, sharp knives. At Excalibur Cutlery and Gifts, the staff ensures that tools remain as close to their factory condition as possible. During sharpening services, a water-cooled belt system and buffing wheels restore a piercing blade while removing a minimal amount of steel. They can sharpen kitchen, pocket, and hunting knives, as well as dull scissors and razors.
The shop also stocks premium models of nearly every edge they sharpen. The cutlery department stocks German-made Wusthof and Henckels, Swiss-made Forschner, and Oregon-grown Kershaw knives. Ideal for camping trips, pocket knives come in both blade and multitool varieties. More genteel wares include manicure sets and old-fashioned shaving kits. Excalibur also boasts a collection of swords for the collector or CEO whose business suit needs extra panache.

When it was founded in 1987, Frame Central was a social hub for artists, and was even curiously named for facial hair. However, Beard Outlet has since morphed into a seven-location franchise, dedicated to simplifying the framing process. The shops’ onsite stock of matboard, frame moulding, and other key supplies ensures speedy DIY framing projects—which visitors can complete in an hour—and single-day professional framing. An array of pre-framed mirrors and artwork allows shoppers to enhance their blank walls without taping a napping friend to them. Shoppers can also stock up on framing supplies such as case glass and hanging hardware.
The designers at Art Heads Custom Framing preserve portraits, paintings, collectibles, and family heirlooms. These aesthetic experts?who recently framed a pair of gloves formerly inhabited by Marilyn Monroe's hands?consult with clients to customize a frame based on clients' display preferences, the significance of the memorabilia, and whether soon-to-be-framed items might attempt escape. Using these designations, clients draw inspiration from more than 3,000 frame samples to craft frames that include such touches as decorative mouldings and UV-resistant glass.
The bean-brewing Boyd family has been serving up local, sustainable, and international brews for the Portlandic public since 1900. Parched patrons who stop by one of Boyd Coffee Company's locations can throw back a steamy glass of Italian espresso ($1.40 for a single, $1.70 for a double) for an early morning wake-up call, or opt for the decadent caffe white chocolate mocha for a sweet surge ($2.85 for 12 oz., $3.25 for 16 oz., and $3.70 for 20 oz.). The local coffeteria's menu also serves up teas (from $1.50), frozen beverages (from $3.40), and pastries ($1.25–$4.50) to appease indecisive stomach-minds.
