Britton's Carpet One Floor & Home: Store History
Since 1947 when founder Harry H. Britton established Britton’s House of Furnishings, the business has undergone many changes and has grown from simply offering floor coverings, furniture and accessories. Over the years, the company was passed to his sons, Ron and Pete, then on to Ron’s sons, Todd and John. In 1992 the business moved to its present location at 1190 East Venice Avenue, adding nearly 2,000 square feet to the showroom.
In 2008 upon Todd’s retirement, John and his wife Joni (a decorator hired by Ron in 1990), took the reins. They launched a major remodel of the store, which included the expansion of the Design & Interiors Studio plus the introduction of a new Home Improvement Center featuring an extensive selection of custom cabinetry and countertops. Rounding out the 14,000 square-foot building is the Floor Covering Showroom, which showcases hundreds of products from the industry’s best-known suppliers and includes carpeting, wood, laminates and tile choices for every room in your home.
Keeping all of the retail space dressed with the latest products and accessories is a favorite task of Carrie Britton, great grand-daughter of founder Harry H. Britton, and a member of the fourth generation of the Britton family involved in the family business. With over 15 years of experience in the day-to-day operation of the store, she also provides back-up and support for the sales staff.
