For the past 37 years, three generations of the Bolick family have focused on furnishing one room and one room only: the sleep closet. Since the bed typically acts as the focal point of the bedroom, Wes Bolick Bedrooms places particular importance on mattresses by stocking a vast selection with features such as inner springs, adjustable power settings, and memory foam that retains impressions from dreams. Customers can choose from more than 50 futon frames and various futon mattresses, or make sleeping spaces multifunctional with built-in storage units or loft designs to optimize room layouts. The Bolicks round out their stock with pint-size fittings for children’s bedrooms and waterbeds for amphibious pets.
In 1993, interior designer Evon Kirkland McAngus founded Evon Kirkland Interiors, through which she transformed homes with an eye for classic and sophisticated design. In 2007, she opened Westend to spread that passion and curate a show room filled with her favorite finds. She and her designers help shoppers navigate the 5,000-plus-square-foot show room to find pieces from reputable high-end lines such as Baker, Henredon, Oly Studio, and Vanguard Furniture. Because they've all honed their design chops, the staff can expertly advise shoppers on purchases.
As shoppers explore the show room, they'll also find antiques from the United States and Europe, as well as plenty of pillows and linens, artwork, and accessories, including candles and kitchen items. The staff also curates a lighting selection that includes table lamps, floor lamps, and chandeliers, which emit more sophisticated glows within homes than dangling light bulbs or half-opened barrels of toxic waste.
