Originally open exclusively to designers, ArynRichards's wondrous 50,000 square-foot warehouse fills homes with furnishings from a slew of manufacturers, such as Century, Hooker, and Bradington Young. Designer lamps ($75–$150) enlighten areas with decorative flair and emissions of visible electromagnetic radiation, and ArynRichards's stock of oil paintings ($295–$1,200) and prints ($139+) covers naked walls with classical landscapes and artfully naked people. Special pieces such as a black-and-white crackled mosaic vase ($325) can provide an interior answer to a decorator's je ne sais quoi. Styles of furniture and accessories range from contemporary to traditional, accommodating interior furnishing wishes from all eras—modern, postmodern, and unmodern. Furniture bought off the floor can also be delivered the same day for an additional fee.

Retro Fitness, named one of Entrepreneur's Top New Franchises in 2011, unfurls with 13,000 square feet of vintage-styled workout space that leads visitors to physical peaks in a sunny setting marked by red and yellow fitness equipment and an encouraging team of goal-oriented personal trainers. The capacious gym's sound system blasts energetic jams from the '80s and beyond as exercisers hoist weights or watch TV shows on the 17-inch screens affixed to every cardio machine. Classic flicks such as Grease and Ferris Bueller's Day Off claim screen space in the cardio theater, where guests manufacture sweat by pedaling, jogging, and rewinding hundreds of VHS tapes. Checkerboard pathways venture toward the Retro Blends juice bar with baristas who blend made-to-order fruit smoothies using whey protein and yogurt.
