In 1989, Carpet Source of Winter Park Owner Louis Tarantino decided to make a change in his life by joining with his brother-in-law at Design Center of the Americas in Dania Beach, Florida. Beginning his career by handling samples and helping installers, Louis learned an appreciation for the business “from the carpet up,” developing a passion for the design industry.
Touring production facilities, including Pakistan, India, Nepal, and China, Louis has experienced the manufacturing processes firsthand, developing the knowledge and expertise necessary to guide CSOWP designers and clients through the selection and specification process. Louis has overseen CSOWP project installations throughout world.
“Understanding the nuances of materials, while presenting my clients stunning, relative design styles, takes a keen understanding of the designer, project and product. Our clients expect nothing less from me.”
– Louis Tarantino, president and owner
Over the years, Louis has built an impressive designer following and loyal client base. CSOWP project installations can be found throughout Florida and the United States, Caribbean Islands, Central America, and Europe.
