Featured in Spokane CDA Living as the city's most favored purveyor of tables, cabinets, living-room, and traditional furniture, Walker's has been replenishing sparse floors with quality furnishings for more than 30 years. Cover up a cumbersome oubliette or manhole with the Napa Collection's chocolate-brown sofa, or peruse the home office section to locate a more appropriate means of book storage than the milk crates or hollowed-out tauntauns of college days. Nearly all the furniture you'll test-drive in-store is actually in-stock, which means restless homeowners won’t have to sit on empty kegs, cable spools, or unemployed character actors disguised as divans whilst waiting for their precious cargo to arrive.
Housed in the historic Flour Mill on the north bank of the Spokane River, The Kitchen Engine is a locally owned and operated specialty kitchen store that hosts cooking classes taught by local chefs and edibles enthusiasts. The schedule features a bevy of upcoming instructional opportunities, with hands-on classes allowing students to make and eat food and presentation-style classes equipping students with recipes and samples of the finished fare. Emerge from the cocoon of your sleeping bag to wrap yourself around the 90-minute sushi-making session ($40), with a sushi kit included, or take a break from penning your opera about the Marianas Trench to learn the spiced-up secrets of barbecue ribs with the 90-minute Bone-Suck’n Ribs! class ($35), taught by chef Landon Dalessi of G.W. Hunters. Members of the clean-plate club can skip straight to dessert with a 90-minute Apple Tarte Tatin class ($25), where fresh local Greenbluff apples will be smothered into cinnamon-y and sugary submission inside a flaky pie crust.
Because no two bodies are alike, The Relaxologiists at Mattress Land use their exclusive bedFit diagnostic technology to determine the ideal snooze position for each customer, as well as the ideal mattress. Comfy Sleep surfaces come from premier brands such as Beautyrest, Sealy PosturePedic, Stearns and Foster, and SleepFit. Shoppers can also upgrade to latex mattresses or Custom mattresses made for each sleepier with separate sides, which accommodates the differing body types of spouses and accidentally conjoined mad scientists.
Sleep City showcases more than 50 Simmons mattress sets, each backed with a 100-night Love Your Bed and low-price guarantee to facilitate dreamland getaways. The BeautySleep Briella Firm set ($279+) models a slim nine-inch profile to discourage inflexible closet-monsters from renting a second property, and the Beautyrest Classic Coldstream Euro Pillow Top set ($599+) cradles dozing bodies atop an extra layer of softness and individually wrapped coil springs that minimize disruptive movement. Sleepers pursuing a moderately firm mattress can curl up on the Beautyrest Classic Songwood Plush set ($999+), bolstered with a layer of premium latex that conforms to one's body shape. Sleep City promotes wholesome sleeping habits on a community-wide scale through its Sleep 4 All program, which takes in used mattresses to be refurbished and donated to those in need.
