Emerson Carpet One Floor & Home: Our Story
Since its simple beginnings as a college-student’s humble efforts to earn extra funds by selling carpet remnants to his classmates, Emerson Carpet One Floor & Home has made it their business to play an active role in the communities it serves.
In 1983, company owner Lee Emerson was a student at Louisiana State University when he decided to open his own small business. Selling carpet remnants he’d obtained from his father’s carpeting store, Lee began making the rounds in his old station wagon, selling remnants to students living in the dormitories. Lee completed his studies in 1986, and in 1994 moved the business in a brick-and-mortar store his wife had designed. Just a year later, the family business would join forces with Carpet One Floor & Home, North America’s largest cooperative of independently owned-and-operated flooring stores.
The family’s strong passion for the flooring business would expand to the next generations in 2005, when Lee’s two daughters, Olivia and Ariane, joined the business. Following the 2015 hire of April Blackstock, the three women currently assume the positions of Finance Director, Operations Director, and Showroom Director, respectively.
Today, Emerson Carpet One Floor & Home maintains an active and conscientious presence in greater Baton Rouge. In August 2016, when the region was struck by a devastating natural disaster, Emerson Carpet One opened its doors to its neighbors in need, housing some families for as long as a year. From donating carpet squares and remnants to local elementary school reading programs and animal shelters, to annual participation in the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Race for a Cure, Emerson Carpet One takes enormous personal pride in paying it forward.
While a lot has certainly changed since our “station wagon” days, some things will never change: our commitment to caring customer service, being good neighbors, and providing only the highest quality products and services, at fair prices.
