38 years in business……Working Together
Clay and I grew up on the same street in Ventura's beach community. Little did we know some day in the future we would be married and own a business together. Ventura Carpet, the wholesale division, was founded in 1981, making rugs and providing carpet installation for large department stores and interior design firms. Area Rug Factory, the retail outlet, was born in 1994.
I'm the buyer and head designer. Starting as a nurse, I later went back to school to study interior design, color and design, textiles and art history. Clay is a C15 HIC (Floorcovering / Home Improvement) contractor, his focus is operations and making creative ideas a reality. We love what we do!
Our talented non-commissioned designers listen and give amazing suggestions. Be prepared to be shown things you may never have thought of, and to bring samples home.
The showroom is a must see, with examples of what we can do and an amazing selection that continues to grow.
It’s fun to look through the window by the rug fabrication area and see the workshop in action, from entertainment studio rugs in progress to simple in-stock area rug alterations. You will never see so many sewing machines and trim colors!
We are grateful to be able to have the advantage of such a large store that can offer so many choices, sizes and solutions in all price ranges.
Bring in your colors, fabrics and pictures of your space and our creative team will help you find your perfect rug. We look forward to meeting you!
