A legacy of excellence

We’ve been serving Memphis and the Mid-South for over 100 years. We’ve survived a devastating fire and persevered through the Great Depression, two world wars, and now a global pandemic. Two things have kept us going strong.

Hand-crafted pieces that elevate any space
Custom woodwork, designed and constructed in-house, is what really sets us apart. Our on-site manufacturing facility allows us to craft high-end elements that create a lasting impression and make your home unique. If you can envision it, we can create it.

Dedicated staff who love helping customers
Gates employees are passionate about their work, and it shows. There is very little staff turnover here, and most of us have decades of experience. Each of us puts a lot of care into making sure our family gives yours the best service and overall experience possible.
