Bentley, “Born & Raised” in L.A.
Bentley, California’s largest carpet manufacturer, was “Born & Raised” in L.A. in 1979. At the time, L.A. was in the throes of change. The culture was evolving, bringing an edge to the City of Angels. Punk rock invaded the Sunset Strip, a movement that translated to the runway with the eccentric styles of Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. The world of commercial carpet was transforming as Bentley broke industry tradition and opened its L.A. doors, leading the push to bring fashion to the floor.
To this day, Bentley’s SoCal roots inspires everything it does: from its designs to its tufting machinery to its branding and events. Bentley has explored the city center, the outskirts and all the places in-between, including the lost and forgotten. It is constantly reinventing itself, but always using L.A. as its muse – keeping its edgy yet sophisticated vibe that’s reflected in all its broadloom and modular carpet styles.
Bentley has been bringing fashion to the floor for more than three decades (40 years in 2019!), while also leading the industry in sustainability. As a California-based company, it’s always adhered to strict manufacturing and environmental standards. In 1984, Bentley received its first sustainability award. Today, it manufactures in a LEED®-EBOM Gold-certified facility – the first in the industry – and has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy for its sustainability achievements.
