Family-run for more than 40 years, Love Furniture outfits homes with high-quality furniture and accessories. The shop's wide selection of chairs, ottomans, and bedroom furnishings let customers abandon minimalist tendencies to use their coffee tables as tap-dancing stages. Lounge-ready sofas ($399+) and recliners ($279+) in a variety of upholstery fabrics accompany three-piece living-room tables ($199+). Queen mattress sets ($399+) await the domiciles of eager nappers and jumping monkeys. Art and accessories ($19+) adorn uninhabited walls, and lamps ($39+) illuminate them for late-night shadow-puppet shows. The knowledgeable staff helps browsers navigate selections from Ashley, Lane, Craftmaster, and other top brands, giving honest opinions about which couches look the best on them.
Using archival-quality materials, Fotobet incorporates artfully captured photographs and user-submitted images to forge personalized prints and greeting cards that make for one-of-a-kind wedding presents, home decorations, and gifts. Customers choose from an arsenal of striking snapshots that symbolize each letter of a special name, word, or Scrabble rack. For instance, they can select an image of the Brooklyn Bridge's gothic arches to represent the letter M, a carriage wheel to stand in for O, or a mediocre report card to symbolize C. The photographed letters—which are all original shots taken in New York City—can be left in color, tinted in sepia tone, or rendered in black and white.
Customers can choose from more than 13,000 custom-cut frame and mat combinations to create an original Fotobet picture. They can also opt for the smaller-scale Fotobet Jr. to decorate a cozy space or kids' rooms, or go with a Fotobet Mini, which mounts selected images on 8"x10" or 4"x10" blocks of beveled wood.:m]]

The Cuyahoga Valley Art Center wants its neighbors to have an interest in art and goes about cultivating this in various ways. One way is its classes, which focus on myriad topics such as drawing, watercolor and oil painting, jewelry design, and pottery. Classes range from children's sessions, including those for preschoolers and homeschoolers, to workshops for adults. Additionally, the center displays art in rotating exhibits, including that produced by its students.
