Sit 'n Sleep's friendly staff of sleep consultants take slumber seriously, spending months to learn the ins and outs of sleep health, mattress selection, and customer service. With their extensive expertise, these wink whisperers help snoozers find the perfect person-size pillow on which to repose or languidly mispronounce French poetry; choose from a panoply of twin, full, queen, king, and Cal king varietals. Guests can find restful vibes manifested in a bevy of mattress brands, from Sealy to Simmons, and types, from memory foam to latex.
Other items include dining tables, slumber-aiding bedroom items, as well as wall art and wall sculptures to distract guests from the person-shaped hole in the wall. The Sofa Company also specializes in build-your-own sofas, for which you can choose from any size, fabric, or configuration and put together the couch that floats around the sky in your dreams (around $600+).
Quality ceramic and mosaic tile craftsmanship is in John Vadurro's blood. His family emigrated from Italy to the United States more than 60 years ago, bringing with them the knowledge and tradition of such vocations. He bolsters those traditions, however, by keeping abreast of current pattern trends and color schemes. At TileBaths, he oversees all projects, from the initial consultation to the post-production of custom-designed tiles. To ensure high-quality artisan tile work, everyone on his team has undergone at least five years of apprenticeship. Besides crafting pieces for the kitchen, bathroom, and home, they also repair tile and offer upkeep services such as re-caulking.
A Southwest-based company for more than a century, Frazee Paint and its team of manufacturers are well acquainted with the unique climactic conditions of the region. Always pulling from the latest technology, their technicians design each of their paint and coating products to withstand dry heat, sparse rainfall, and showers of chewing tobacco from passing cowboys. Their quality paints, wall-coverings, wood-care products, and painter's tools stock the shelves of more than 125 retail locations throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, as well as international dealers in Mexico, China, and Guam.
With locations in Downtown Los Angeles and Downey and an online emporium, Your Furniture Now's experienced staff outfits homes with bed stands, chairs, dining-room sets, tables, and other essential pieces. Throughout the virtual and brick-and-mortar showrooms, the stock shines with glass-topped coffee tables, leather recliners, and team members who can provide in-person or online consultation. They can also assist clients as they figure out how to best position a sofa in the living room or during a food fight.
After customers select their items, such as a durable innerspring Serta mattress or a marble-accented bar set, the company delivers the products as soon as the following day. They even assemble pieces for free, saving homeowners the hassle of having to find something other than a toolbox to weigh down important documents.
In 1911, 15-year-old Elroy L. Payne dropped out of his Lincoln, Nebraska high school and journeyed to Los Angeles. A year later, he persuaded his parents and seven siblings to join him, and by 1933, the Paynes were the largest manufacturer of gas furnaces in the western United States. That was also the year Elroy painted the company trucks to match the state flower: vivid orange like the california poppy. Throughout the decades, the home-air experts' focus shifted. Today, they repair air conditioners, perform regular maintenance, improve air quality with filters and UV treatments, and sell AC systems.
Payne trucks are still bright orange today, but now they're also fuel-efficient Scions, which the company estimates has prevented 384,000 pounds of carbon from leaking into the air. Likewise, eco-friendly refrigerant, instead of snowman tears, flows through every device technicians install, and the team designs custom energy-efficient "zoning" systems for homes whenever possible.
With the exception of apprentices, all on-staff installers and service technicians have between 10 and 28 years of experience in perfecting air quality and go through a rigorous in-house training program on top of that. Payne specialists are so confident in their AC-whispering abilities that they insure their repairs with a one-year guarantee. Specialists adhere to a strict set of policies on the job, promising to be punctual, tidy, and respectful of clients' homes, first burning symbolic offerings in crankier furnaces. Though the company offers products by York, Lennox, and Carrier, technicians do not work on commission, and pride themselves on eschewing pushy sales tactics.
