About Us


In 1960, Al and Bea Davis started a small antique and used furntiure 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-know 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  Aireloom Handcrafted Mattresses, Ethos Organic Mattresses, Spring Air Back Supporter, Mlily Premium Visco Mattresses and other generic brands. We also sell many pure LATEX RUBBER mattresses! We have used the website name, DavisWorld.com for many years.

Our new website name, GentleHome.com conveys our true goal… to provide a great source for organic, chemical-free and eco-friendly mattresses and other home furnishing items at the low discount prices we have been know for all these years!

Today www.GentleHome.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.
