Tile adds a clean, creative look to kitchens, bathrooms, and patios, but it's also an eco-friendly flooring material that requires no harsh chemicals or maintenance to keep it gleaming. Staff members at A World of Tile help clients to upgrade living spaces with this environmentally friendly alternative through in-house design consultations and a range of ceramic, stone, and specialty tiles. They amass products from across the globe, offering unique designs and SunTouch heated options that warm toes during cold winter months and prevent chihuahuas from shaking the whole year. During free hands-on workshops, staffers teach customers how to correctly install tile themselves or provide referrals to local contractors.
Like fancy suits, sofa sets are sewn from the same cut of fabric. These matching sets provide a well-rounded look in living rooms, but near misses tend to clash due to their small differences. At 20 show rooms throughout the western US, Mor Furniture for Less arranges complete-room sets so customers can envision the collections in their own homes. Furniture for living rooms, dining rooms, and children's rooms can be found in each store along with individual lamps, tables, and entertainment centers. The stores also carry complete sets of beds, dressers, and nightstands so that homeowners don’t receive criticism from design bloggers in their dreams.
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
