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.

Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of BounceU's location. Staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne.
In addition to open sessions, the indoor play haven sets the stage for Daily Create and Bounce Summer Camps programs that teach art lessons and group activities. Special events include parent's night out, which lets parents spend an evening away from their kids.

Photographer Kelly Copeland has transformed the fleeting smiles of new babies, brides, and families into elegant keepsakes since 1989. During the standard in-studio packages, Copeland arranges subjects against one studio background for 45 minutes, where he documents them romping in their cutest duds or squirming awkwardly in a single, enormous sweater. Clients then review the haul of grins captured during the shoot, choosing their favorites for production as gift prints ($65–$125) or wall prints ($195+). Each session totals 90 minutes in length.
