About Us Flooring Furnishings Contact Employment Sales

Hiltz-Lauber is a locally-owned and operated flooring and furnishings shop and showroom in downtown Homewood, Alabama. The business was founded in 1991 by Joseph Lauber who has expanded the business to include a furniture showroom as well as a warehouse location near Forest Park in Birmingham, Alabama. With many styles to meet any of your design needs, Hiltz-Lauber has become the local dealer for Schumacher Carpets in Alabama and Birmingham's premier source for Baker Furniture*. Our excellent customer service and high quality products have been the cornerstone of our success.
(*Remember that if you find something on the Baker website, we can order it for you even if we do not have it in our showroom.)

Company Philosophy

At Hiltz-Lauber, we believe in timeless style and quality. We offer flooring and furnishings of exceptional quality - from traditional to transitional to modern.  We believe in the product lines we sell, and we maintain close ties with our vendors to further insure that you will be satisfied with your purchases for years to come.

Environmental Statement

By developing relationships with environmentally responsible vendors and manufacturers, we are able to offer high quality products made with sustainable practices and renewable resources. Two of our featured vendors with commitments to preserving the environment are Schumacher Floorcovering and Baker Furniture – a division of the family of companies known collectively as Kohler Co. 

Schumacher Floorcovering’s commitment to the environment is evident not only in the use of the renewable resource of wool, but it is also apparent in their support of WaterAid America; part of the proceeds from the sale of the By Nature Collection go to this cause which provides clean drinking water to impoverished and polluted areas.

The various companies of Kohler Co. conserve resources and ensure ongoing protection of the environment by developing water conservation products and using recycled and sustainable materials to create beautiful hardware and furnishings.  The Kohler Hospitality Group reclaims and revitalizes depressed land in an effort to preserve and restore wildlife habitats while the Kohler Global Power Group works to improve air quality.  Read more here. Baker furniture is produced on site in their factory in Hickory, NC near High Point, NC – the home of American furniture manufacturing.  As many companies have sacrificed quality for efficiency, Baker still employs old world artisans who hand craft each piece of furniture with care and great attention to detail and high production standards.
