(225) 291-2787 |
Lee grew up in New Orleans working with his father and learning the business during the summers. Lee later moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to attend LSU. He started selling carpet for dorms out of the back of his blue station wagon. After graduating, Lee started his own flooring business in 1996 and focused mainly on apartments. Later on, he joined the Carpet One organization and has now expanded his reach by selling to large commercial companies, apartment complexes, rental properties and residential homes. Lee has come a long way from selling from the back of his station wagon but never lost his friendly demeanor. The Emerson name tied to flooring carries on to now include his two daughters, Ariane and Olivia.
