Welcome to the Carpet Trends website! We are glad you came to learn more about the Carpet Trends family. We are a family owned business in Rye, NY, originating in 1956, when Augusta and Ralph Rogers created Carpet Trends with their son Ted in Rye, NY. Ralph worked for Nye-Wait Floors as a mill representative, but saw an opportunity to service the Rye community along with the aid of his wife, who had a budding decorator business. In 1974, Ted Rogers purchased an old Chrysler dealership and that building is still our home today. The property was built in the 1800’s, and had originally been a Livery/Stable and the stone wall that surrounds the parking lot today was built in the 1800’s for Billington’s Livery.
Ted and his wife Ann grew the business into a successful family owned carpet store. In 1959, Ted hired his first employee, Jimmy Robinson. Jimmy spent many years installing for us before retiring in 1992. Ted and Jim would handle all of the measuring and installations, while Ann would handle things at the store. Ann and Ted’s son, Robert, came into the business in 1985 after working for Union Carbide as a salesman. Rob had a vision for Carpet Trends that would take the company into the new millennium. By expanding the showroom and providing a complete product line, Robert has made Carpet Trends able to service a wide array of customer tastes. Today, we continue to grow beyond the small town borders of Rye. We continue to expand the capabilities of a family business whilst retaining its core value, customer service.
