Gangs of ottomans and mattresses populate Atlantic Bedding and Furniture, whose continually changing designs from Coaster, Forbidden City, Harden, Sealy, Old Town Imports, and other top brands help customers capture the furniture species of their choice sans long waiting periods. Treat hard-working eye awnings to a decadent break with a solid hardwood Leonardo bed ($347–$516), backed by a strong, modern headboard the color of morning espresso but the flavor of tufted upholstery. Taking home a Davenport nightstand ($125) means never having to precariously perch glasses or bequeathed dentures on thin windowsills.
24e outfits living spaces and offices with a slew of high-end living-space accouterments including a rotating selection of inimitable vintage and mid-century modern furniture in its ample attic space. Guests can amble around new products such as the Kendra two-drawer night table ($125) or the Serenity rectangular dresser mirror ($140) that gives patrons one last look at themselves before leaving for work at the mirror factory. The Aldo end table ($470) spruces up living rooms with its geometric design, and the translucent Casper dining chairs ($275) lend dining-room collections a ghostly panache.
Tom and Ryoko Nadeau founded Nadeau in 1991 with a goal of providing customers with quality home furniture and a wealth of product knowledge. The business quickly evolved into something larger: The duo now has 19 retail stores and a team of buyers who travel the world in search of one-of-a-kind, handcrafted pieces of solid-wood furniture. Nadeau has earned mentions from numerous media outlets—including the Washington Post, CBS Chicago, and Charleston Home magazine—for its unique selection, which includes a cache of more than 6,000 pieces ranging from rare side tables and chairs to dining sets. Pieces are never mass-produced, allowing customers to bring the flavor of different cultures into their homes or provide an adopted tree with a new friend.
Green Frog Sleep Center works around the clock to ensure that its bedding, mattresses, headboards, and sleep accessories help rest-seeking patrons enjoy a peaceful night's sleep. Let your pillow's song lull you through the gates of horn and ivory with the Tempur-Pedic Symphony queen-size pillow ($129.95), or balance heavy heads atop the Tempur-Pedic medium neck pillow ($99.95). Under-mattress peas are impossible to discern with the King Koil Evenia pillow-top queen ($449.95), and the Sealy Beckenham queen mattress gives you a far more comfortable surface to wake up on than the usual pile of jagged metal triangles ($799.95).
