About Us

At Direct Flooring Center we buy our carpet direct from the mills.

There are no brokers or buying groups so the more carpet we buy, the lower your prices are. We have over 50 different types of carpet always in-stock and this is not including our hundreds of remnants. We stay on top of the new trends in both consumer preference and new fiber construction. We buy from all of the top name brands that you all know.

The carpet options range from rental grade and commercial carpet up to some of our high end favorites that we stock because we like them so much. But if we don’t have it in stock you can be sure we can order it for you. With so many choices of style, color, fiber, and construction and all the prices associated with each, it can get nerve racking, that’s why we welcome you to come in and let us help you quickly narrow your search and minimize the head strain. Come in and see our selection of Anso, and Smartstrand carpets! Shaw, Mohawk, Beaulieu, Kraus, Cavalier, Godfrey Hurst.

Direct Flooring Center is a full service flooring company offering a tremendous selection of in-stock and custom order flooring goods along with top quality installation services. Our sales staff takes pride in service and we try very hard to show how much your business matters to us. We buy direct from the mill and utilize our buying leverage to offer you a lower cost on many of our products.

From carpet, vinyl, and laminate to luxurious hardwood, luxury vinyl tile and planks, or even Marmoleum, we have you covered. We have one of the largest selections of in-stock carpet and we have the knowledge to go along with those choices. We follow through so you will send your friends to us!


Direct Flooring Center was founded in 1996 by Gary and Kim Tharp. Their first store was on First Street in Bend, Oregon. In 1999 the Bend store was moved to its current location off of Highway 97 across from Target and the Cascade Village Shopping Center. In October of 2007 Direct Flooring Center was purchased by Skip and Michelle Marler. The previously successful operations were changed very little and more importantly the key group of people stayed in place to maintain their organized service oriented way of doing business. In October of 2009 there was a second store added to the team in Eugene. In May of 2010 we opened our third store in Albany. Now you can find Direct Flooring Center in Bend at 20525 Robal Rd. or Eugene, Oregon at 2750 West 11th St. or Albany at 3474 18th Ave. SE.

We will set-up your install and make sure you are happy in the end. There are a lot of choices out there and determining the right fit can be overwhelming. Let us help you narrow down that search so you can feel confident you made the right choice.


Those of you that manage multiple units or even just one, we have you covered. A large percentage of our business is repeat rental owners and apartment complexes. We understand the delicate balance of keeping the price down but keeping the quality up. We stay on top of the right products for your application whether it is performance based, cost based, or like most situations, somewhere in-between. Have a disaster on your hands and need to get a new renter moved in on short notice? Our in-stock products and quick turn around on installs will get you back in business in as little as one day. Price discounts for repeat customers are available.


We understand your needs, we know your time is important from getting the right material, to getting it on time, and having the support behind you through your projects. We spend our days talking with folks and learning what their current desires are and we can share that with you. Whether it is a custom home, spec home, or low budget rental, we know what products to show you. We will keep you well stocked to keep up with your demanding and ever changing schedule and we’ll get you out the door on time. We are ready when you are!


Our stores work well for small and mid-size commercial projects. Check out our in-stock selection of commercial carpet for your main street project or let us help you decide on the right VCT, commercial vinyl or carpet tile for your larger projects. We have installers for these applications also so don’t feel like you have to cover everything!
