First Retail Location 3175 Buford Hwy Duluth Ga
May 17th, 1985, Donny Philips opened doors to his first location, “Atlanta Carpets”, where he built the foundation for Atlanta Flooring Design Centers. In one year he quickly developed an amazing reputation within the residential, main street commercial markets, and the local community of Duluth.
Second Retail Location
3164 Buford Hwy
As the company grew swiftly, he expanded the business further in the following year. He opened his second location in Proctor Square, allowing easier access to on-site material storage and delivery. This gave way to hiring 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.
Third Retail Location
3246 Buford Hwy
With the company developing, so did the location and Donny decided to upgrade once again. He began construction of a new location featuring an expanded showroom for new product line displays. Along with more warehouse space for products while featuring their first loading dock - making it more efficient to unload items. By then, business grew beyond Gwinnett and into the Metro-Atlanta region.
Partnering with Southern Rug and 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.
Becoming Atlanta Flooring Design Centers Inc.
Following a successful partnership between Atlanta Carpet and Southern Rug & Carpet Company, Donny and Frank decided to merge the two businesses into the currently existing Atlanta Flooring Design Centers. Towards the early 2000s, a new approach to the flooring industry emerged and opened the way to Retail, Commercial, and Custom Builder Sales.
