The designers at Art Heads Custom Framing preserve portraits, paintings, collectibles, and family heirlooms. These aesthetic experts—who recently framed a pair of gloves formerly inhabited by Marilyn Monroe's hands—consult with clients to customize a frame based on clients' display preferences, the significance of the memorabilia, and whether soon-to-be-framed items might attempt escape. Using these designations, clients draw inspiration from more than 3,000 frame samples to craft frames that include such touches as decorative mouldings and UV-resistant glass.
Framed Art's experts transform unsheathed artwork, photographic heirlooms, and old family tax returns into custom-trussed adornments worthy of the most exclusive fireplace mantles. An 8"x10" frame ($50+) modestly complements a stairwell gallery of school portraits, while a 22"x28" casing ($100+) could corral a raucous concert poster. Basic framing estimates cover matting, backing, glass, and a plain perimeter of black wood or metal. Larger or more ornate options ensconce the most precious specimens in carved wood, lace mattes, or lasers.
Within its recently renovated and refurbished walls, 3 Monkeys Pub & Grill spotlights a menu of hearty sandwiches and appetizers to accessorize frosty beers and TV screens glowing with athletic action. Shareable appetizers kick off chew-a-thons and include the Monster chicken strips, which chefs source from Oklahoma's infamous 100-foot-tall roaster and buddy up with a side of ranch or barbecue sauce ($4.75). The Porky Monkey steak sandwich transfixes stomachs with piles of flame-broiled sirloin, vegetables, and bacon perched atop a warm pub roll ($7.75). While watching a game on one of the eatery's nine TVs or its huge projector, guests can gulp down frothy glasses of Hamm's, Rainer, and Pabst Blue Ribbon ($2 each), or challenge the bar's mixologists to concoct cocktails from a huge range of liquors and mixers ($6+). Visitors can lounge on the outdoor patio year-round courtesy of heating units and 3 Monkey's seasonal contract with the Sun.
Like fancy suits, sofa sets are sewn from the same cut of fabric. These matching sets provide a well-rounded look in living rooms, but near misses tend to clash due to their small differences. At 20 show rooms throughout the western US, Mor Furniture for Less arranges complete-room sets so customers can envision the collections in their own homes. Furniture for living rooms, dining rooms, and children's rooms can be found in each store along with individual lamps, tables, and entertainment centers. The stores also carry complete sets of beds, dressers, and nightstands so that homeowners don’t receive criticism from design bloggers in their dreams.
