First Retail Location – 3175 Buford Hwy Duluth Ga.
On May 17th, 1985, Donny Philips opened the doors of his first location, Atlanta Carpets, next to a local dining spot “The Family Restaurant”. There he built the foundation for what is now Atlanta Flooring Design Centers. His reputation for delivering quality products and exceptional service within the residential, main street commercial markets, and the local community of Duluth grew quickly. The 1,000 square foot building was limited on space, had no warehouse or forklift, and required daily commutes to North Georgia to collect his customers’ material. Yet despite this, he developed an amazing reputation within just one year.
Second Retail Location – 3246 Buford Hwy Duluth Ga.
The company grew swiftly and in the following year he expanded the business further. Initially storing his products inside a friend’s garage, he then opened his second location in Proctor Square. This next site allowed easier access for on-site material storage and delivery, giving way to the hiring of the company’s second and third employees. One, Alan Franks, who is still actively selling flooring with us over 35 years later. The company further grew, expanding into new markets to service both commercial contractors and custom builders.

Partnering with Southern Rug & Carpet Gallery & Frank Winter
In 2001, Donny Philips (left) and Frank Winter (right) met and worked together on several successful projects, leading to his decision to form his partnership with Frank and The Southern Rug & Carpet Gallery. As the two partners continued to grow and benefit each other, the business flourished even further.
January 30, 2001
Became Atlanta Flooring Design Centers Inc
A few years after the partnership of Atlanta Carpet and Southern Rug & Carpet Gallery, Donny and Frank decided it was time for a name change. Atlanta Flooring Design Centers was the winner! A new name and an energized approach to selling floors was born! Retail, Commercial, and Custom Builder sales all expanded in the early 2000's.
Third Retail Location
Atlanta Carpet continued growing & so did the location! A few years later, Donny decided it was time to upgrade once again. They started building a new location that would have a new showroom & more warehouse space for products. This new location also featured Atlanta Carpet's first loading dock, which made it easier to unload. The expanded showroom allowed for new product lines to be displayed. By then, we started growing beyond Gwinnett & into the metro-Atlanta region.
Third Retail & Corporate Headquarters
3665 Swiftwater Park Drive Suwanee Ga
With continued growth, Atlanta Flooring Design Centers moved to their current location. This location firmly established a home base which anchored our multiple locations. The building located in Suwanee opened the door for more geographical area to grow and call home. This location also had proper office and warehouse space which welcomed the opportunity for what lay ahead. Our new location allowed Atlanta Flooring Design Centers to create a new and updated showroom rivaling any in the Southeast.
April 3, 2009
Opened Builder Branches Charlotte,
NC and Birmingham, AL.
Expansion of The Flooring Outlet
Atlanta Flooring Design Centers works with some of the largest builders in the metro- Atlanta area, so there is a tendency for excess flooring, tile, and materials. Due to this, we decided to create a flooring outlet for local installers and homeowners to come to buy material via "cash & carry".
Purchase of Chattanooga Flooring Center
In 2015, Atlanta Flooring Design Centers bought Chattanooga Flooring Center, just 28 miles from the "Flooring Capital of the World".
Chattanooga Flooring Center is one of the top flooring retailers in the Chattanooga area.
Addition of 3660 Swiftwater Park Dr
Our builder division kept growing & so did we!
In 2018, we added a new building and warehouse for our builder division.
Addition of Flooring Attic Outlet in Buford, GA
As inventory kept expanding and partnerships were growing with other manufacturers, we decided to move our outlet from the Suwanee location to a larger location in Buford. This space allowed us to better serve our customers and make the cash and carry process much easier.
