"Patrick is a great story. He is one of the hardest working young men we have ever met, he treats his employees like family, he drives a school bus to keep the insurance, but takes in 5-7 pieces of furniture a day. He has built a reputation in Huntsville that is beyond belief, competing with upholstery companies that have been in business for 50 years. He proves that hard work and customer care can make any business successful."

-Darlene Saal, The Business Card Holder


Patrick's Mission Statement

Patrick inherited his interest in upholstery work from his Aunt Elaine when he was only 13 years old. She got him started tearing down furniture pieces to the original frames. His father, Donald Leak, was in the business for 36 years and taught him everything he knew before he passed away.

"Popular design in upholstery has been greatly influenced by public demands and labor costs. I still see each piece as an individual work - its character achieved through attention to line, proportion and detail."

Today we have spring-ready seats, knock-down assembly work, powered staple guns and so on - but at the end of the day, the materials still need to be fixed to the frames by human hands.
