Featured Flooring: Chosen by Paul Deaton

Paul Deaton’s Pick: Rustic River’s Kingston Hand-Scraped Hickory in Fountain Valley
Rustic River

Paul Deaton joined Dalton Carpet One in 2014, but he is a seasoned flooring expert who came to us from a Carpet One store in northern California. As a long-time member of the Carpet One family, he is very familiar with the exclusive flooring products available only at Carpet One stores.

It’s no surprise that his favorite product comes from one of those exclusive lines. His Featured Flooring pick is Kingston, a product from Carpet One’s Rustic River line. Kingston is gorgeous, hand-scraped hickory that comes in 8” planks. For Paul, it represents the epitome of timeless beauty in a floor.

“The timeless look of Rustic River’s Kingston hand-scraped hickory flooring would enhance the beauty of your home, no matter where it was installed,” says Paul. “It’s the kind of flooring that would have looked as gorgeous in the 1920s as is does today.”
