Our Story. . .
Ed Selden Carpet One is one of the most respected names in floor covering in the South Sound region.
Established in 1959 by Ed Selden, the company serviced the new home market and saw tremendous growth in those early years. Rick Selden, Ed’s son, joined the company in 1969. About that time the economy went into a deep recession. The company retrenched its position, closed a branch in Auburn and was able to survive when many others failed.
Rick began managing the company in the early 80’s and with Ed's retirement in 1986 became president of the company. The firm had a solid base in new construction, light commercial and residential remodel work. Because of the great products and installation work the company was doing, word of mouth was bringing in many retail customers to the store. Rick sensed the retail customer base would continue to grow as long as the company offered a diverse product line and great service and a great final product.
Continuing in this effort in 1998, 39 years after its founding Gayle Selden, Rick’s daughter joined the firm. Gayle has headed up the companies partnership with Carpet One. This CO-OP of other retailers across the United States and Canada has given the company tremendous buying power and access to unique products to feed its growing retail base.
The 3rd generation company continues to grow because of its reputation for honesty, trained and experienced sales & support staff, tremendous service, and installation craftsman committed to doing the job right the first time. The store continues to focus on residential remodels, insurance replacement, commercial work and new construction. The company sells and installs all types of ceramic tile and stone, sheet vinyl, vinyl tiles, window coverings, laminate flooring, pre-finished & engineered hardwoods, bamboo, cork, and carpet.
