Carpet One Floor & Home, also known to most as Carpet One is a popular chain of flooring stores with over 1,000 locations nationwide. Their flooring stores offer all types of flooring including carpet, hardwood, luxury vinyl plank and tile. A lot of consumers know about Carpet One because all of the stores are named the same and branded the same, however from our experience, the prices and consumer experience varies at each store.
In this blog post, we will delve into the history of Carpet One, the flooring brands they carry, and everything you need to know before shopping there.
The History of Carpet One
Carpet One was founded in 1979 and has since grown to become one of the largest flooring cooperatives in the world. With over 1,000 locations worldwide, Carpet One has established itself as a large provider of flooring solutions for both residential homes and commercial properties.
One of the key factors that sets Carpet One apart from its competitors is its commitment to a fully merchandised showroom, and private label products. All Carpet One stores are part of a co-operative so all of the Carpet One stores across the country should generally look the same, and as a consumer you should have the same experience with the same products at all the stores across the country.
Carpet One is owned by a holding company called CCA Global. CCA Global owns many different co-operatives in the home improvement space including Carpet One Floor and Home, International Design Guild, Lighting One, ProSource, The Floor Trader, Taite Floor America and Taite Floor Canada.
Who is the CEO at Carpet One?
Carpet One Floor & Home’s CEO is Patrice Case, who recently took over from the founder Howard Brodsky.
Where is Carpet One headquarters?
Carpet One Floor & Home is headquartered in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Where are the Carpet One locations?
There are over 1,000 Carpet One locations across the country. They all carry the same products and the same private labeled brands.
Carpet One Taite Floor Brands
All of Carpet One’s flooring brands are private labeled just for Carpet One retailers, but the products are made by multiple different manufacturers across the country. Most of these products can be found in any local store you visit, but Carpet One private labels them so that their store owners can have unique products. This generally means you are going to pay more for these products at a Carpet One store rather than if you found them at a non-affiliated local flooring store. In total, Carpet One stores carry 17 exclusive, private label brands.
What are the most popular Carpet One flooring brands?
Carpet One flooring stores carry multiple different private label brands including Bigelow, Lees, Tigressa, Oath by Resista, Innovia, Resista Softstyle, Invincible LVT, Invincible H2O, Rustic River Hardwood, Hydrotek, Bel Terra and Mirror Lake. With that said, their most popular flooring brands are:

In Conclusion: Should you shop at Carpet One?
There are a lot of things to like about shopping at Carpet One including the in-store experience, knowledgeable sales reps and variety of products they offer. It also helps that they have so many stores, there is very likely to be a store near you.
With that said, we encourage you to also look at shopping at your local flooring store rather than this large co-operative. You will find that at a more local flooring store, you will get better prices and a lot of the time better service. Plus, by shopping at a true local flooring store, you are supporting your local community.
