The Story of Archway Carpets

Archway Carpets is run by father and son team Graham and Darrell Smith. Graham set up the business in 1984 and it was his wife’s wish that one of her son’s would join their father in the business. Darrell joined the business and fulfilled his mum’s dream in 2010, just before she sadly passed away.

Graham and Darrell are the perfect team for providing flooring for your home or business, with their combined skills bringing you great customer service, design expertise, practical experience and technical know-how.

Darrell has been at Archway for six years, but spent his early career working in jewellery (including studying diamonds in Amsterdam!) and he brings that keen eye for design and passion for quality to carpeting. His subsequent career in self-storage means he also has a great knack for working with customers to get exactly what they need in practical terms. This awareness of design, quality and practicality make Darrell the perfect person for ensuring you get a flooring solution that works for you.

Graham has built a firm reputation for quality and great service in over thirty years of running the business. With decades of skill and experience in carpets and carpet fitting, he will ensure that once Darrell has worked with you to choose the perfect flooring solution, all the practical elements of your carpet fitting go smoothly and the whole experience is hassle free as possible for you. “

It so important to support our local family businesses; we were thrilled with the service, product and after-service we received from Archway carpets. They were friendly and helpful and went that extra mile to ensure that we are 100% happy. We would defiantly recommend Archways carpets and will use them again when we need any future flooring.
— Mr and Mrs G, Ipswich.
On behalf of CLIC Sargent, I would like to thank Archway Carpets for supporting our work
with children and young people with cancer by kindly offering your time and services.

Cancer can have an enormous effect on family finances and for some it can mean that
urgent costs of living cannot be met. CLIC Sargent Social Workers may be able to help
ease the money worries that families may be facing by providing access to CLIC Sargent
grants and information about benefits.

Working closely with our team of social workers, we learned of a family who were in need
of carpets but were at that time unable to afford them.

Darrell and his team worked professionally and sensitively to ensure the family in question
were able to live in comfort whilst their child recovered from cancer treatment and go on
to live life to the full.

Thank you, Darrell and team for your hard work to improve the life of a family coping with
childhood cancer and for your continued support.
— Daisy Turner, Clic Sargent
