“When did it all begin and where?”
Travel back to 1954 and the driveway outside a small building on Skokie Blvd in Northbrook. Notice something that’s missing? It’s the sound of cars on the expressway for one. Our original home on the Northbrook prairie was built prior to the Edens Expressway.
In the beginning, dreams were big, but our capabilities were smaller. First opened by Earl Lewis in the early 50’s, our smallish 800 square foot facility was devoted exclusively to carpeting and carpet cleaning. Since then, three generations of family members have grown the business, which has expanded several times under Steve Lewis’s direction. In 1997, to better meet our customers’ demand for greater selection, Steve purchased the building and property adjacent to the original location and changed the company name to reflect even more services. Now, the newly re-branded “Lewis Floor & Home” was able to offer tile, wood, vinyl, countertops, window treatments, a rug gallery and fine cabinetry.
The rest is history—ours—featuring 30 years of the absolute best in home design; fresh new ideas and fashions and constantly evolving services. We’ve changed with the times and set the bar, but have never lost sight of the fundamentals that have defined distinctions forever: quality products, a personal touch, community involvement, price points for every budget, a world-class caring staff, and the best styles offered. Oh, and one more thing that has never changed changed—you can always find a Mr. Lewis here. Try that in a big box store.
