Since 1947, family-owned Foote Brothers Furniture has decorated dwellings with a selection of sofas, recliners, bedroom sets, and tables. Make over homely homes with a King Hickory sofa ($1,769), perfect for kicking back during audiences with insubordinate serfs. Pair Denney lamps ($169) with a Null lamp table ($159) to introduce artful accents, or relax regally in a leather La-Z-Boy recliner ($1,199). Other offerings include a Hammary Sutton cocktail table ($199), a Butler accent table ($369), and a Best accent chair ($509).
Standard Furniture traces its origins back to 1912, when a local family began traveling through Birmingham, peddling fine household furniture out of a wagon. Four generations later, the business has blossomed into 13 retail stores throughout Alabama and Tennessee, and its century-long commitment to quality furniture and customer service won it the Alabama Retail Association’s Silver Award as one of the Retailers of the Year in 2011. Each gallery abounds with bedroom, living-room, dining-room furniture from top designers, including Lane, along with mattresses in a range of shapes and styles from brands such as Tempur-Pedic, Serta, and Jamison. At each location, a knowledgeable staff awaits to offer design counsel, suggesting pieces that best suit a household’s style or will hold up against a disobedient pet woodchuck.
Peter and Mimi O’Brien, American Eagle Moving & Transport’s owners, value efficiency. Although they agree that quick, reliable service is of paramount importance, they reached this conclusion in different ways—Peter as a deputy sheriff; Mimi as a corporate project manager. Combining their disparate backgrounds, Peter and Mimi deliver prompt and professional moving and storage services. Movers carefully protect belongings, and specialize in transporting antiques as well as grandmas who refuse to get out of their rocking chairs. To bridge the gap between moves, they offer long- and short-term storage, inventorying and blanketing each item for safekeeping.
