The cozy confines make an ideal setting for birthday parties, as the accommodating staff is enthusiastically well versed in party planning and assists customers in creating a festive event such as a bridal shower or an elegant-yet-understated pet wedding

Each gallery abounds with bedroom, living-room, and dining-room furniture from top designers such as Lane, along with mattresses in a range of shapes and styles from brands such as Tempur-Pedic, Serta, and Jamison.
