Emerson Carpet One: Our Story

Emerson Carpet One is a family business with a long history. Floyd Emerson started his family in the flooring business with a small, stock only warehouse in New Orleans, Louisiana called Carpet Corner. Lee Emerson, Floyd’s son, grew up 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, he became a member of Carpet One and expanded his reach by selling to large commercial companies, apartment complexes, rental properties and residential homes. Lee has come a long way over the years, and the Emerson Carpet One showroom is proof of that.  Emerson Carpet One maintains an A+ BBB rating.
