Although Create a Frame / Handworks Gallery began as a designer framing store, works of art have wriggled their way off the walls and onto the shop floor, where 3-D pieces complement the flat compositions framers nestle beneath glass, mats, and moulding. Helmed by husband-and-wife team Wendy and Steven Denenberg for more than 30 years, the white custom-framing counter offsets a wall of frame samples from brands such as Adhisa and Roma, which encircle pieces of any size alongside flattering mats and glass to protect against passing impressionists. Tactile objets d'art dapple the rest of the gallery space with the colors of hand-hewn artisanal furniture, sparkling jewelry, and glass bowls, vases, and ceilings crafted by American and international artists.:m]]

Main Street Frame Shop preserves memories and memorabilia with custom framing jobs and brings photos and images to life with custom printing services. The staff prints photos on canvas, photographic paper, or specialty art papers, expanding images to new sizes and dimensions. Custom framing can beautify a collage of family photos or protect an autographed jersey from having the name smudged off by a bitter rival.

Levin Furniture has been passed down through generations of Levins since 1920, when Jessie Levin persuaded her husband to start a business to help their daughters' prospects. Since then, the business has grown, expanded, and gained a reputation for procuring and selling quality furniture. Levin Furniture's stock includes leather reclining sofas, beautifully carved dining tables, and sleigh beds from Daniel's Amish using hardwood materials from Ohio.

Established in 1832, J.J. Gillespie Gallery furnishes its walls with a wide range of art from American and international artists. In an attached workshop, a master framer meticulously preserves keepsakes inside custom wood or metal frames. The gallery also hosts an onsite art expert, who can appraise oil-based works or clean and restore them to their former luster.

Museums typically showcase art in carefully curated rooms. At Mattress Factory, however, the room itself is the art. Since 1977, the museum's two buildings have housed a permanent collection of contemporary installation art—room-sized works that engulf the entire space. In Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Dots Mirrored Room, mirrored ceilings and walls infinitely reflect a trio of fluorescent dots painted on a white formica floor. In Greer Lankton's It's all about ME, Not You, astroturf lines a floor covered in artful arrangements of grotesque dolls that form shrines to artists such as Patti Smith and Candy Darling.

To further immerse guests, Mattress Factory's exhibitions are paired with educational programs that range from lectures to hands-on art projects. Along with stimulating the public, the museum stimulates the growth of artists through its residency program, which invites participants to create installations while living near the museum, a much more practical alternative to hiding a secret cot in the coatroom.

The Coury family has been adorning Pittsburgh's bedrooms since 1950, when the first Coury Furniture opened its doors. Since 1988, Mattress World has carried on the family tradition of quality with a selection of more than 20 mattress brands, including Simmons, Sealy, and Tempur-Pedic, in more than 100 styles. Factory-trained sales associates escort guests to cushions that fulfill their needs in terms of firmness, durability, size, and ability to withstand being dropped off a 10-story building. In addition to traditional innerspring and memory-foam mattresses, customers choose from a selection of waterbeds, futons, and iron and brass frames. Accessories such as bedding-protection kits help shield mattresses from bed bugs, dust mites, and allergens while preventing already-counted sheep from nibbling the sheets.
