Tom and Ryoko Nadeau founded Nadeau in 1991 with a goal of providing customers with quality home furniture and a wealth of product knowledge. The business quickly evolved into something larger: The duo now has 19 retail stores and a team of buyers who travel the world in search of one-of-a-kind, handcrafted pieces of solid-wood furniture. Nadeau has earned mentions from numerous media outlets—including the Washington Post, CBS Chicago, and Charleston Home magazine—for its unique selection, which includes a cache of more than 6,000 pieces ranging from rare side tables and chairs to dining sets. Pieces are never mass-produced, allowing customers to bring the flavor of different cultures into their homes or provide an adopted tree with a new friend.
Green Frog Sleep Center works around the clock to ensure that its bedding, mattresses, headboards, and sleep accessories help rest-seeking patrons enjoy a peaceful night's sleep. Let your pillow's song lull you through the gates of horn and ivory with the Tempur-Pedic Symphony queen-size pillow ($129.95), or balance heavy heads atop the Tempur-Pedic medium neck pillow ($99.95). Under-mattress peas are impossible to discern with the King Koil Evenia pillow-top queen ($449.95), and the Sealy Beckenham queen mattress gives you a far more comfortable surface to wake up on than the usual pile of jagged metal triangles ($799.95).

The Aldo end table ($470) spruces up living rooms with its geometric design, and the translucent Casper dining chairs ($275) lend dining-room collections a ghostly panache.
