About Us


Founded in 2012, Hayasa Flooring Design is the vision of two brothers, Levon and Hakob Karapetyans. Growing up in a family of renown architectural millworkers who had a leading reputation for over 3 generations, the brothers were introduced to the wood craft at a very early age. However, growing up, they did not show much interest towards the craft. Only after moving to the United States at the age of 19, Levon discovers his connection with wood. Upon graduating from State Academy of Fine Arts of Armenia, Levon crosses the Atlantic in the search of a better shelter for his artistic spirit. After working a couple of years in the flooring industry, he falls in love with the craft and fully dedicates himself to mastering the intricacies of the profession. Consequently, the brothers found their own company in 2012.

As a co-founder, Hakob has been involved in all aspects of operating the business – everything from administrative work to labor to operations to acquisition of new clients and partners. However, Hakob’s story is slightly different. After a couple of years from founding, when the company was put on a stable growth trajectory, Hakob decides to go back to school and receive a degree in business. Upon graduating from the University of California, Haas School of Business, in 2016, Hakob returns to the family business to spearhead the business development efforts of the company.

Initially focusing on simple residential projects, the brothers eventually build a team of dedicated professionals able to complete projects of any size and complexity. Our team eventually grows to 18 full time employees. Today, although we work on commercial projects too, our main focus still remains residential structures. Contrary to what we started with, our primary focus is on high-end, custom projects, projects that defy imagination and push us out of our comfort zone. One of our main strengths is our ability to customize the color of the finish. As a painter plays with colors on a canvas, the same way we play with colors on wood to achieve the desired color for our clients. For us, our craft is a form of art, it’s life, it is everything.

In 2013, we opened our flooring showroom in San Francisco to better serve our customers’ needs. In addition to the gallery style space where we display our own custom colors, the showroom has a finishing shop where we can create any color and finish of the client’s choice. So if needed, we can pre-finish the flooring for the entire project and simply do the installation part on the site.

Our continuing success is a result of our strong conviction in individual approach and long-term relationships. We don’t believe in mass production. For us, every single project is a unique opportunity to create flooring original in concept and character. We strive to deliver experience; rather than just a service. Our extensive experience coupled with our cultural values make us the premier choice among Bay Area’s leading architects, designers and general contractors.
