Lynn Herberts


Lynn’s entry into the family business from her career in Interior Design was a natural transition.  First opening and managing Banner Carpets To the Trade showroom on West 3rd Ave, where it is still located to taking over the company from her father with her 3 older brothers.  After her brothers retired in 2007 Lynn moved the company forward with expanded product lines with a focus on Wool broadloom, unique area rugs and hardwood.  Lynn combines her educational background in both Interior Design and Marketing with her passion to bring exceptional flooring choice to the Canadian market.   Lynn travels to markets throughout the world and imports products to  ensure our customers have access to the newest and best flooring choices available.  Lynn loves working with her many longtime customers and sharing her very extensive knowledge of the flooring industry with the dedicated sales team.  Lynn is very proud to say that through all its many years in business Banner Carpets is still family owned and operated and is now in transition to its third generation of family.
