The GentleHome Story begins In 1960, Al and Bea Davis started a small antique and used furniture store, Al Davis Furniture, in the Hillcrest section of San Diego. After a few years, they began selling high quality furniture, mattresses and carpeting, mostly from catalogs and manufacturer's samples. The store became well-known in Southern California as "The place to go to" for ordering great home furnishings at substantially reduced prices. In 1980, their son Bob launched Mattress World, a specialty store within Al Davis Furniture. Mattress World has become a great source for discounted prices on fine mattress brands like Spring Air Back Supporter, Chattam & Wells, Aireloom Handcrafted Mattresses, Ethos Natural Latex Rubber, Bedworks of Maine, Vermont Furniture Designs, Rogue Valley Furniture, Nomad Furniture of Albuquerque, Wesley Allen Iron Beds, and other affordable generic brands. Our newest division, GentleHome.com is a great source for organic, chemical-free mattresses and other items, also at discount prices. Today www.DavisWorld.com is your one-stop shopping site for fine discount home furnishings. Our "Brick and Mortar" store is on University Avenue in Hillcrest, two blocks west of Park Boulevard and contains many catalogs of furniture and a limited selection of furniture samples in the store. Many samples of mattresses are on display for you to try out. While many furniture items amd mattresses can be shipped to other parts of the country, please check with us for more information before placing your order. Al Davis got his first taste of the home furnishings business as a salesman at Fed-Mart in downtown San Diego in the 1950s, learning how to run a discount store from the legendary Sol Price, the founder of Price Club, later Costco. Al passed away in 2000, but his son Bob continues the family tradition of offering fine quality products at greatly discounted prices.
