Like a lot people my first interaction with carpet was as a child. My uncle managed a large carpet store and every time I went to visit I remember it like a giant playground. Climbing up colourful carpet stands, running, jumping and rolling myself in and out of every nook and cranny - it was so much fun. When he offered me a job at 14 to be the ‘Hoover Boy’ on the weekends to earn some extra pocket money I jumped at the chance!
Proving myself as a reliable and hardworking individual I was given more and more responsibility and soon made it to Sales Director. A few years down the line I opened up my own shop. Having worked from the ground up I thought I’d seen pretty much everything there is to see in the flooring industry. How wrong was I? The industry is constantly evolving. I love staying on top of trends and keeping up to date with the latest products. Only then can you offer all the best options available to a customer.
I started my career working business to business in the wonderful world of flooring. I worked for one of Europe’s leading flooring manufacturers who offered lots of extensive training and hands on experiences. I really like the fact that every job is different, there’s always new hurdles and challenges to come across. I met Dan at his shop in Edgware and we hit it off straight away – both of us have a passion for flooring and really enjoy getting involved in all types of projects. We know that shopping habits have changed in recent years and Dan and I had a lot of conversations on how we could adapt. We decided to join forces and open up Clever Carpets & Flooring LTD. The Mobile Carpet Showroom. With the principle aim of satisfying our customers through honest hard work. From both Dan and Jonny, thank you for reading our story.
