About Us

HAYASA FLOORING DESIGN


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 crossed the Atlantic in the search of a better shelter for his artistic spirit. After working a couple of years in the flooring industry, he fell in love with the craft and fully dedicated himself to mastering the intricacies of the profession. Consequently, the brothers founded 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 took a slightly different approach. After a couple of years from the founding, when the company was put on a stable growth trajectory, Hakob decided to go back to school and receive a degree in business to complement his entrepreneurial mind. Upon graduating from the University of California, Haas School of Business, in 2016, Hakob returned to the family business to spearhead the business development efforts of the company.

 Initially focusing on simple residential projects, the brothers have eventually built a team of dedicated professionals able to complete projects of any size and complexity. Our team eventually grew to 18 full time employees. Today, although we work on commercial projects too, our main focus still remains residential structures. However, as opposed to what we started with, now we primarily work on high-end and custom projects. One of our main strengths is our ability to customize the color of the finish. As a painter plays with colors on a canvas to express his or her emotions, the same way we play with colors on wood to achieve the desired color for our customers. For us, our craft is art, our craft is everything – it is life!

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 with our clients. 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 to people’s homes; 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.
