Corlew & Perry has deep roots in the Nashville community. The company, started in the 1920's
by William Corlew, originally installed only hardwood flooring. Following the war, L.C. Perry
began working with the firm, becoming a partner in the 50's. He expanded the store's offerings
and incorporated the business in the 70's. When facing retirement, Mr. Perry offered the
store to long-time friend Charles Armour, whom he felt had the integrity, quality
workmanship and customer service that had made Corlew & Perry successful.
Charles has 40 years' experience in flooring. He has a thorough understanding of installation
procedures of all flooring types. He has worked for large carpet companies. He pioneered Green Hills
Carpet Center and purchased Corlew & Perry in the 80's.
Today Charles works with his son Warren Armour. Charles says he could not continue nearly
as productively without Warren's energy, knowledge, willingness and loyalty. Today,
Charles and Warren continue to honor tradition by using quality products and providing quality
