History…Since 1978
Carey Burke Carpets Storefront Image

Started by T. Carey Burke as an entrepreneurial venture to expand on his many years of experience in carpet sales and sales management, Carey Burke Carpets brought to Carytown and the Richmond, VA, area his unique blend of personality, knowledge and personal service in providing quality products to meet the floorcovering needs of its customers. Continuing the tradition started by her father after his passing in 1983, owner Karen Burke Poh, in association with her mother, Beverly Burke Sheppard, worked hard over the next few years to expand her knowledge not only in floorcovering products, but also to discover what Richmonders truly wanted when it came time to decorate their floors.

Carey Burke Carpets entered the 90’s with the idea that it could best meet the growing home fashion needs of its customers by striving to be the premium provider of answers to their questions, and a solution to their problems. We pride ourselves in having a wide variety or products and styles to provide an abundance of choice for our design-oriented clientele. With Karen at the helm, the business took on new dimensions with more exotic product offerings from China, Italy, Belgium and England. Sadly, Karen passed away in March 2010. Her husband, Rick, who had joined her in the business in 1995, has taken the store's leadership baton and is honoring his wife's spirited customer-service legacy through his work. With the assistance of an experienced, design-oriented sales staff, the store has remained relevant by using a simple formula: Show honesty, intergrity and a total love for the business.

Carey Burke Carpets offers a comprehensive selection featuring woven wool patterned carpet and synthetic broadloom.
