Cody
Floor Decor Greeter

Cody is the official Floor Decor greeter. He loves meeting with all the customers. He especially likes when returning customers ask for him so he can come and say hello.

As you can see from his photo Cody loves his day off, he enjoys running on the beach but most of all he loves finding the nearest mud puddle. He is also featured in the advertisements for a local Milford business "Give The Dog a Bath". 

Michael Phoenix
Owner

Michael grew up on Long Island and began his flooring career in 1973 as an installer for a large New York-based retail chain.

He moved to Connecticut in 1978 and began his career as a sales rep with several flooring manufacturers responsible for developing sales to flooring stores in Connecticut and New York. He became sales manager for a multi-million dollar carpet manufacturer responsible for a sales team for the Northeast.

In 1998 he left the wholesale side of the business to open his own flooring showroom. Today along with his partner and daughter Janine they run the day to day operations at Floor Decor.

Janine Geneste
Owner

Janine has been a lifelong resident of Connecticut and is the third generation in the flooring industry. She credits a lot of her flooring knowledge to two whom she considers the best of the best:

  • Her grandfather Homer Phoenix
  • Her father Michael Phoenix

She first started in her father's business 18 years ago as the office assistant and moved up to sales manager to her current role as co-owner. Her hard work and charisma truly show the passion for design she's always had.

Janine's greatest reward is helping clients create the space of their dreams no matter the size of their budget.

Randee Slotkin
Design Consultant

Randee grew up in Philadelphia and moved to NYC after graduating from Philadelphia University with a degree in textile & interior design.

She started her career as a fabric designer and rose to the top of her profession, becoming the head designer for a large textile company. There, she had the opportunity to travel to Europe several times a year and develop trends for her fabric line.

After 30 years of living in NYC, Randee moved to Connecticut where she worked at Ethan Allen as a design consultant and then started her own design consulting company. She has always loved combining various tiles & textures with unique color combinations to create beautiful kitchens & bathrooms.

Randee considers herself lucky to have found her niche at Floor Decor with Mike & Janine as the design consultant.
