In 1986, the founders of Advanced Window Products designed their company to focus on two things: crafting their own windows and professionally installing them. The idea enabled the company to act as a one-stop contractor for their clients' window needs. The desire to push themselves toward even better service led the company's skilled technicians to create windows with such features as LoE-366 glass, which can keep out up to 25 degrees in the summer heat, insulate up to 75 degrees in the winter, and allow better views of neighbors' gardens than the traditional fist-punched hole in the wall. More than 25 years later, Advanced Window Products' technicians continue to update homeowners' windows and offering free in-home estimates before every job.

What started as a project to decorate her home in high-end style using budget pieces turned into a thriving business for Finde founder Bonnie, who now teaches others how to refinish found furniture and sells hand-painted, sanded, and distressed pieces of her own. Under Bonnie's tutelage, a bulky entertainment center might become a bench with cubbies, an outdated desk might be chopped down into a mod end table, or a regular couch might magically transform into a davenport.
Forsey's Furniture Galleries gussies up living quarters, stocking its two stores with furniture, art, and home accessories from high-end designers such as Stickley, Copeland, Dale Tiffany, and Global Views. A Fred and Ginger sculpture ($105) pays tribute to the human form with an abstract rendering of two dancers in midtwirl, and the Aarhus box ($147) stylishly protects documents and jewelry from dust, light damage, and thieves who don't know how to open boxes. Customers can cast a multichromatic glow over living spaces with lamps from Dale Tiffany ($197), each channeling the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright with geometric patterns forged from richly hued stained glass.
