Catherine and Scott McKearn leave no corner of the world unsearched in their quest to discover artisan furniture builders. The couple frequents faraway destinations in India, Indonesia, China, and Morocco to unearth beautiful solid-wood furniture to import directly to their three shops. In order to save their customers money, they buy pieces wholesale and ship them in 40-foot containers, bypassing both middlemen and price-gun-wielding pirates. Their furniture ranges in style from industrial to French country, and the eclectic selection rotates every few weeks to accommodate new shipments.

Shutterbug Michael Spangler, owner of Expressions Photography of Central, has been snapping photos professionally since 1986. His skills earned him stints as president of the Louisiana Professional Photographers Association and the Capital City Professional Photographers Guild. Today, he crafts portraits and senior photos both inside his studio and amid natural surroundings. His sophisticated, black-and-white portraits occasionally include pops of color to highlight a red car, a pink tutu, or a bad case of the blues. In his color photos, Michael runs the gamut between heavy saturation and subdued, desaturated hues to highlight his subject's dynamic poses.
While chronicling weddings, he draws on 26 years of experience as he alternates between traditional poses and candid shots. Michael also transforms sports photos into memorabilia such as custom composites, trading cards, and magnets. When he isn't capturing still images, he professionally records concerts and recitals on video.
Sears Portrait Studio's original photographers committed their first family photos to film more than 60 years ago, and the studio's digital photographers continue the tradition of taking high-quality portraits at more than 1,000 U.S. locations open today. Each professional photographer completes a rigorous training program before they begin composing and shooting digital photographs, adopting styles ranging from formal portraits to passport photos. Their all-digital system lets customers access their photographs online, where they can add graphics before ordering prints for collages, greeting cards, mugs, and broken-mug collages.
Mattress Direct culls a variety of mattresses in textures ranging from firm to plush from brands such as Tempur-Pedic and Serta. Serta's iComfort, for example, evenly distributes support across the body with microsupport gel capsules nestled in its memory foam; a specialized material prevents overheating and the resulting unpleasant lava-chase nightmares. Mattress Direct's stock of bed frames, bed linens, and pillows allow patrons to assemble complete bedroom sets in one trip, and an express delivery service prevents the hassle of renting a moving truck or outfitting each leg of a new bed with a rollerblade.
