From the moment you set foot inside the garage, it’s clear that the technicians at K.O.B. Kustoms know how to give a car personality, without having to make it sentient by reciting incantations when the moon is full. Cars here sport brightly colored interiors, burnished rims, and customized sound systems by Kenwood, Crossfire Car Audio, and XS Power, helping customers to achieve the regal status of the business’s namesake—the King of Bass. Its creations have earned it widespread recognition, with features in several publications, including car-audio-focused magazines as well as more mainstream periodicals such as Forbes.
By amassing a collection of furniture pieces from manufacturing companies such as Whitewood Industries, Archbold Furniture, and Whittier Wood, Barewood Outlet helps its clients find long-lasting, all-wood furniture that will be a staple of their families' abodes for generations. Barewood splits its inventory between finished-wood pieces, which stand at the ready to brighten rooms, and unfinished pieces, which customers can then have hand-finished to their specifications or take home as a do-it-yourself project. The outlet stocks all the tools, stains, and instructions necessary for these projects in order to help clients feel the rush of creating something themselves without experiencing the same old hassle of housing and feeding a Frankenstein monster.
Like most success stories, Leader's Casual Furniture didn't start at the top. Founded in a single west Florida show room in 1971, the company now boasts 19 retail show rooms, a 150,000-square-foot distribution center, and an ever-increasing selection of rattan, wicker, and patio furniture. Upon browsing the virtual show room, visitors find rattan dining sets, beds, and entertainment centers as well as wicker tables with stone or glass tops. Custom fabrics and tropical-themed pieces add personal flair to interiors or exteriors, and an online room planner helps customers get a feel for how chosen pieces will fit into their homes.
Vinyl Smiths understands that some people just want to fill their homes with sparkling ocean waters, fire breathing dragons, and football players. Maybe not actual animals and saltwater, but at least sleek vinyl images of them. Their wall decals can transform empty walls into colorful artwork and add playful accents to children's rooms. Each decal is made in the United States and adheres to surfaces without the use of permanent glues or nails. When even more detail is needed, their photo-realistic fabric wall murals blanket bare walls with such images as a sandy beach or a brilliant sunset. The decoration manufacturer can also turn customers' images into gallery pieces with their canvas wrapping service.
