Dedicated to rewriting the traditional furniture-store formula, the well-edited shop eschews the sales in sales in favor of a friendly, pressure-free approach. Here, customers can bed-flop and couch-surf to their seat's content without interruptions from a sales-hungry staff. The hassle-free environment––coupled with a policy to only stock first-line releases and brand-new inventory––gives the 50,000-square-foot facility showcasing more than 350 manufacturers a comfortable, shoppable feel. With items running the gamut from recliners and lighting to the bathroom sink, Brandon Home Furnishings is a one-stop fix for any painfully plain corner, closet, nook, cranny, or dollhouse cranny.
Since 1959, The Chessler Company has precisely centered photos, artwork, and diplomas in beautiful, custom frames and mattes. Owing to its craftsmanship, the company now receives demand in the wholesale and commercial markets, including federal and state agencies, art galleries, and top-secret supervillain coalitions, but it still maintains a strong retail business for individual projects. The company's large stock of frames and mats also suits challenging framing projects, such as mirrors, heirlooms, and memorabilia. In addition to the framing services, Chessler's professional installers help patrons achieve gallery-quality displays by hanging large or tricky pieces in the home.
