At the 3,800 square foot gallery and showroom of the Naples Flooring Company, owners Cristian and Laurie Longo ensure a flawless experience. As Naples’ preeminent purveyor of wide plank flooring from European wood manufacturer, Legno Bastone, Naples Flooring has become the go-to destination for those who seek old-world craftsmanship and exquisite beauty in their flooring.
“We show care in everything we do,” explains Cristian. “We have this beautiful gallery in the heart of downtown Naples where we showcase the product in a dramatic way. When you walk in, you’ll find our staff wearing tailored clothes.”
The Naples showroom is divided into five galleries, arranged by collection, and it offers an extensive library of samples that clients can take with them. The Longos understand that a home’s flooring is the foundation for its design statement, and they appreciate that decisions cannot be rushed. To that end, they take careful measures to guarantee the comfort of the homeowners, architects, designers and builders who visit their showroom.
“When we have clients come in, we’ll have a catering company bring in lunch or hors d’oeuvres. The client typically will go through a marathon of selections; sometimes they’ll fly into town to choose countertops, flooring and lighting all in the same day. We try to schedule our appointments around 12:30 because we know that’s when they’ll be getting hungry. We’ll make sure they have wine, champagne, water and lunch. Or in the morning, we’ll have pastries. If it’s in the afternoon, we’ll have cookies or chocolates. Whatever we need, to make our clients feel special and appreciated.”
A new addition to the Naples Flooring Company gallery and showroom will be opening soon located off 3rd St S Naples, FL.
