In central New York, the artisans at Brennan Stained Glass Studio work with extreme heat and traditional techniques to craft elaborate stained-glass windows and art pieces. In addition to producing the stained-glass dome atop Alexandria Bay's Boldt Castle, the team has designed and installed windows for thousands of churches, temples, schools, hospitals, restaurants, and office buildings. The team also instructs students in the art of stained glass with its own unique approach. Lessons include basic instruction in the copper-foil method to create window panels and sun catchers. Students may also learn how to design their own custom fused-glass plates so they can stop arguing over dish ownership with their dogs.

In 1947, Angela and Bernard DiSiena started peddling appliances and kitchen cabinets in a garage with dirt floors covered by canvas. More than six decades later, DiSiena Furniture boasts 85,000 square feet of space spanning a trio of buildings. Today, Angie's three children and their spouses still preside over daily operations.

The family brightens homes with furniture from a medley of brands, outfitting boudoirs with luxurious beds, offices with desks, and living rooms with couches and leather recliners. They also add finishing touches to home decor with lamps, mirrors, and grandfather clocks, whose cardigans and corncob pipes lend a distinguished air to any room.
