Like most success stories, Leader's Casual Furniture didn't start at the top. Founded in a single west Florida show room in 1971, the company now boasts 19 retail show rooms, a 150,000-square-foot distribution center, and an ever-increasing selection of rattan, wicker, and patio furniture. Upon browsing the virtual show room, visitors find rattan dining sets, beds, and entertainment centers as well as wicker tables with stone or glass tops. Custom fabrics and tropical-themed pieces add personal flair to interiors or exteriors, and an online room plannerhelps customers get a feel for how chosen pieces will fit into their homes.
Though customers can easily shop online for the beds in Naples Mattress's stock, walking into one of the company's four locations is best. That's because in-store customers can lie back and experience the shop's wide variety of mattresses from leading brands such as Serta, Tempur-Pedic, Simmons, and iComfort, all while staff members offer personalized recommendations and advice. Customers decking out an entire bedroom can supplement their mattresses with the store’s selection of bed frames, dressers, nightstands, and pillows pre-loaded with dreams about ice cream.
Across 7,500 square feet of showroom space, Kathleen M. Pica has spent more than 30 years curating a collection that ranges from Tiffany lamps to vintage clothing.

And to the delight of their customers, much of Mattress Firm's bedding wears the label of a premium brand, such as Sealy, Serta, Simmons Beautyrest, or Stearns & Foster.
