More than 3,200 yards of 230 new individual designer quality carpet rolls and remnants donated by Kuhn Flooring Gallery (KFG) are now on sale at the three Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County (HFHSPBC) ReStores in East Boca Raton, West Boca Raton, and Delray Beach. The “magic carpet ride” worth $72,483 in new retail product significantly supports HFHSPBC’s mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope and serves as a prelude to the upcoming ‘grand re-opening’ of the trio of ReStore home improvement thrift shops in mid-September when more than $1 million in new furniture will fill new red carpet sections.


According to the KFG Executive Team, the donated carpet rolls and remnants include, but
are not limited to, wool, nylon, plush, shag, Berber, Smartstrand, and Stainmaster in
both residential and commercial grade carpet by Masland, Stanton, Mohawk, Shaw, and more.
The sizes vary from 3’ x 5’ to 12’ x 34’.


HFHSPBC ReStore Director Tom Livoti reports that the diverse array of “high quality designer carpet finds” are available at the following ReStore locations. Since each carpet roll and remnant is a one-of-a-kind item for sale on a first come, first served basis, each store will feature different merchandise and will be re-stocked with new offerings as carpets are sold.

These large, new merchandise donations from retailers such as Kuhn Flooring Gallery create the ever-changing, one-of-a-kind inventory of great finds (re-stocked hourly) at the ReStores that are shopped by the general public and interior designers. ReStores feature not just gently used items from individuals, but also new designer furniture, accessories and artwork from retailers and housing supply manufacturers (including high end lighting chandeliers and fixtures and tile flooring) from warehouse overstocks and floor models to make room for their new incoming merchandise.

On any given day, ReStore-goers shoppers will find one-of-a-kind living room, dining room, bedroom
and patio furniture; home entertaining bar and theater/family room wall units; dishes and appliances
(even sub-zero refrigerators, home movie theater seating, front loading high efficiency washing
machines), lighting fixtures and bulbs, solid wood kitchen and bathroom cabinets and closet shelving
HFH has harvested from luxury condos on Ocean Boulevard and homes in gated country club
communities children’s toys and bikes, golf clubs and other sports/recreation gear, and more.

Proceeds Help To Break Challenging Economic Cycles


Proceeds from Kuhn’s ReStore Magic Carpet Ride help fund the permitting and construction and neighborhood revitalization operations that build and improve affordable homes for hard-working families in the South Palm Beach County community who cannot seem to get ahead and qualify for traditional bank mortgages. Habitat homeowners are earn their homes through sweat equity programs and qualify for interest-free mortgages to help break the poverty cycle and change the trajectory of entire families for generations. ReStore proceeds also support increased programming and education scholarships for children of homeowners to restore hope by breaking challenging economic cycles.


“Our team at Kuhn Flooring Gallery is pleased and grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County in its mission of providing a ‘hand up, not a hand out to support hardworking, low income families who deserve a and safe and affordable home,” shared the Kuhn Family. “We see now that this is the perfect way to ‘roll out the carpet’ to support the greater community in which we have served and partnered for more than 30 years.”
