The garage door's job is to remain unnoticed. When a roller comes off track or the lift system breaks down, the garage door has made itself a nuisance to the homeowner, who is that much more tempted to drive the car through the door to get it out. The technicians at Deluxe Door Systems Inc. can rescue homeowners from this plight, aiming to keep all residential and commercial garage doors in proper working order. They install new doors and opener systems in addition to repairing existing systems and make free estimates before so much as turning a screw.
The horticulturalists at Foertmeyer & Sons Greenhouse Co. tap into experience accrued during more than two decades in business to equip customers with homegrown greenery and helpful gardening advice. Operated by two generations of the Foertmeyer family, the greenhouse nurtures flowering plants culled from all corners of the world. Inside, hanging baskets dip pendulously from the ceiling, spilling forth green fronds, and planters contain budding flora and hide garden gnomes prone to ruining the perspective of landscape paintings.
A stroll through Lombard Fine Furniture’s 10,000 square-foot showroom reveals a carefully woven tale, spun by the design team: a 39-room collection of stylized vignettes, replete with durable sofas and dining room sets and accented with select art and tabletop accessories. Since the 1940s, the family-based staff has handpicked traditional and contemporary pieces from brands such as Stickley and Hickory Chair for homes and high-end tree houses, always mindful of the customer’s return on investment and of the need for functionality. The furniture experts’ eyes for detail and passion for people bubble over into their interior design services, which they perform by drawing upon creative backgrounds ranging from gardening to art history. Staff members will extol, for example, the virtues of leather—its ability to outwit wear and tear while comforting the skin with unmatched pliability. This passion, combined with more than 100 collective years of design experience, allows them to create rooms that fit each client’s color preferences, household needs, and desire for an ottoman that doubles as a microwave.
