Dedicated to rewriting the traditional furniture-store formula, the well-edited shop eschews the sales in sales in favor of a friendly, pressure-free approach. Here, customers can bed-flop and couch-surf to their seat's content without interruptions from a sales-hungry staff. The hassle-free environment––coupled with a policy to only stock first-line releases and brand-new inventory––gives the 50,000-square-foot facility showcasing more than 350 manufacturers a comfortable, shoppable feel. With items running the gamut from recliners and lighting to the bathroom sink, Brandon Home Furnishings is a one-stop fix for any painfully plain corner, closet, nook, cranny, or dollhouse cranny.
Short of creating physical clouds to hold people aloft, Mattress Warehouse stocks almost every imaginable furnishing to help customers catch a few Z’s. Rows of name-brand mattresses from Sealy, Simmons Beautyrest, Serta, and Tempur-Pedic entice customers to replace their worn pad for new bedding, such as a standard mattress, a fluffy pillowtop unit, or a memory foam piece that conforms to bodies. Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.
