Wood You, a member of the Unfinished Furniture Association, and its staff of timber traders have been selling real wood furniture since 1986. All of the customizable natural-wood furniture displayed in the 8,000-square-foot showroom can be stained, painted, or covered in Grey Poupon to suit any space. Occasional tables ($44–$179) add arboreal flair to living rooms, and dining chairs ($52–$99) support eating endeavors. Personalize your workstation with computer modular groupings or shield your TV from an aggressive animated DVD collection with an entertainment center ($199–$699). Information about lumber, stains, and finishing techniques are available for perusal on Wood You’s website.
The staff of Dr. Snooze has transformed the process of selecting the perfect mattress into a science. A pressure-imaging pad is placed between a customer and their potential mattress, creating a map of pressure points on a computer screen and suggesting whether or not the mattress would be a comfortable fit. Patrons can use this technology to narrow down their options in a storeroom cushioned with models by Simmons, Laura Ashley, and King Koil. The inventory includes all sizes—including extra-large lengths for hibernating ogres—and plush infrastructures boast everything from innerspring to memory foam. A selection of bedding and furniture for adults and kids completes bedroom makeovers.
The entirely local staff members are committed to keeping their neighbors happy, so they will match any competitor's lower price within 30 days of purchase. Once buyers choose a mattress, white-glove delivery service ensures the pristine condition of items and includes haul away of old mattresses or an unwelcome Sandman if needed.
The crisp scent of Robin Blue and native cedars and Carolina Sapphire evergreens wafts through the grounds of Red Barn U-Cut Christmas Tree Farm & Christmas Store. Visitors to the farm peruse the trees in search of the perfect specimen, and then take part in a time-honored holiday tradition of chopping it down. Customers can also head indoors to a 500-square-foot holiday store stocked with artificial trees, gift-wrapping supplies, ornaments, and lights.
The furniture arrangers at Family Furniture Leather Gallery stock all 12,000 square feet of their showroom with more than 100 different colors and styles of furniture spanning from contemporary leather sofas to traditional end tables. Casual end tables ($129+) accompany leather sofas ($999+) and leather chairs and ottomans ($599+), while lamps reveal walking obstacles such as a lurking roller skate or a discarded turkey sandwich ($69+). In-stock items such as leather reclining chairs ($599+) and leather sleeper sofas ($1,399+), both crafted with top-quality leather, are delivered within 72 business hours after purchasing. For the same price, customers are also able to design their own furniture items if in-stock items don’t cradle or envelope their bodies in the right fashion.
For more than 30 years, the staff at the family-owned Leonard's Furniture has helped homeowners make their dwellings more livable by stocking a 14,000 sq. ft. showroom full of décor and furnishings from more than 150 vendors. The team makes the shopping process easier by delivering and assembling any in-stock items free of charge. Those items include furnishings for dining rooms, living rooms, and bedrooms from brands such as Ashley, Lane, FlexSteel, and Tempur-Pedic. The store's comprehensive stock includes home office staples including desks, chairs, and mirrors that come in varying sizes and opinions on Snow White. Shoppers can also find equipment to furnish home-entertainment rooms, such as theater seats that eject anyone who takes out their cell phone during a movie.
"Take care of your customers and they will take care of you" has been the standing credo of Wood You Furniture’s owner, Tom Bolton, for nearly three decades. Today, the solid-wood-furniture purveyor and his two sons, TJ and Andrew, still espouse this customer-first mentality as they meander the floor to aid customers with their expertise. The store sources sturdy furniture made solely from solid woods, both finished and unfinished. The selection ranges from traditional to contemporary with bedroom, dining, and child-specific furniture capable of withstanding generation upon generation of Play-Doh-related messes and indoor firework shows. The store also offers custom design and finishing services, as well as delivery services.
