The arrangements and installations of green door design fill homes with carefully balanced constructs of living plant material housed in and surrounded by artfully placed objet d'art. Single orchids ($28–$48) sweeten air and views with curling, colorful petals and intoxicating scents rumored to cause normally stoic house plants to shed their petals and go skinny stemming. Water-retaining succulents ($3–$38) thrive on arid counter tops or in dry gardens to steadfastly stand at attention flanked by fragrant candles or guardian statuary. Vintage pots line shelves alongside modern ceramic containers and one-of-a-kind carved wooden bowls, each competing to serve as the next vessel for an orchid arrangement with soft greens and wending branches ($45+) or to serve as a prop for the opening scene of Oliver!.

After spending years as a salesman for top mattress lines, Steve Shore needed a new mattress himself. Rather than opt for a steep employee discount on one of the mattresses he sold, the enterprising Mr. Shore collected various natural materials and had them assembled into a mattress that met his exacting specifications: a comfy sleep cushion made with no potentially toxic components. The result was such an improvement over the big-name mattresses he sold that Mr. Shore and his son eventually decided to produce a line of organic mattresses based on the prototype, on which Mr. Shore slept soundly for more than a decade.

Now, the Shore men sell their mattresses under the Eco-Cloud name in The Natural Mattress Store. Made from high-quality steel coils topped with natural latex, Eco-Cloud mattresses resist accumulating allergens and nightmare blueprints and retain their shape and support for years. Organic wool and cotton covers help keep sleepers cool and snug in bed by deflecting body heat and wicking away moisture. Each Eco-Cloud mattress comes with a 12-year, nonprorated warranty. In addition to the Eco-Cloud line, The Natural Mattress Store carries more than 20 organic mattresses, as well as eco-friendly, solid wood bedroom furniture from Pacific Rim Woodworking, Bedworks of Maine, and Vermont Furniture Designs.

As an artist, Jay Joya views frames as pieces of art in and of themselves. He salvages old barn wood and rustic scraps to craft frames that he paints by hand. In addition to the details he puts into his custom borders, Joya's acid-free matting and high-quality glass and acrylic ensure works of art remain preserved for years. A stock of more than 80 sizes of ready-made frames is always at hand to frame pieces in any style, from landscape to portrait to panorama. Beyond art and photography, Joya and his staff help clients frame or shadowbox items such as mirrors, heirlooms, and perfectly cooked steaks.
