Since 1991, Lori has been owner, chief executive officer and interior designer of Bay Area Floors and Design Carpet One.
Before opening up her first store in Redwood City, Lori worked in the fashion industry for over ten years between San Francisco and Manhattan. When she stepped foot into flooring and home improvement, she took the industry by storm with her boutique style.
Her goal from the beginning was to mesh what she had learned from both industries to create a space that separated itself from the rest. Her 20,000 sq. ft. showroom that features flooring, furniture, vanities and décor does exactly that. Not only did she want to make her space as enjoyable as possible for her clients, but for other designers as well.
Outside of her showroom, Lori has been an active participant in the surrounding communities. She has always made it a point to value her professional involvement with the Peninsula.
As a single mother of three, Lori understands the value of turning a house into a home, while creating a space that is fashionable and functional.
