A history of exceeding expectations


Shiva and Ali Cheloei Sr. incorporate the company and opened the doors to their first retail flooring store in Sterling, VA under the name “US Carpet & Rug” where they specialized in every kind of flooring including carpet, tile, laminate, and hardwood.


US Carpet & Rug becomes a franchisee of Abbey Carpet & Floor (Abbey Carpet at the time) - a national buying group franchise headquartered in Bonita Springs, Florida. The national buying power of 800+ stores nationwide allowed us to offer national brand names at lower prices to consumers


We opened a second retail location in Leesburg, VA and offered the same continued service


We expanded our offerings to home design and cabinetry to make Abbey a “one-stop-shop” for all of our client’s home remodeling needs. We changed our name to “Abbey Design Center”


We finished construction on our new flagship 11,000 sq. foot showroom in Sterling which continues to feature the latest in kitchen & bathroom remodeling options and design along with the floor fashions people have come to know us for over the decades


We opened a new off-site division named Abbey Commercial Flooring which bids and procures commercial work. Their single project awards have gone up to $2.5M and include the Marriott - Columbia Square, The Dept. of Homeland Security, and Top Golf in Ashburn.


Shiva’s son, also named Ali after his father, leaves his legal private practice to become Vice President of Abbey Design Center


Abbey Design Center and Abbey Commercial Flooring moves its main headquarters to Reston, VA to be able to streamline operations for better service to its two retail locations in Sterling and Leesburg. Ali is promoted to President


Amir Cheloei, Shiva’s other son, leaves his career at NBC Universal and joins Ali as Executive Vice President to oversee all aspects of Abbey
