Kings Carpets

Kings Carpets is a local family business with a history of excellent service. Established by Laurie and Peggy Harvey in 1963, the very first shop began at 86 High Street, Ilfracombe. Despite not initially being much of a grand affair, from the very first day we specialised in one product: carpet. Combining total commitment - including Laurie selling the carpet in the day and fitting it the same night - the company grew quickly and was able to employ its own team of fitters and open another shop in Barnstaple. In 1969 Kings Carpets was the first company in the area to open a carpet warehouse, situated on the Pottington Estate in Barnstaple; here they were able to stock a wide range of rolls of carpet and vinyl to suit a variety of customers' needs.
