The Story Behind the Store

We first opened our doors back in 1968 as a simple paint and wallpaper vendor. Over the decades, we’ve expanded and evolved with the times, becoming the one-stop-shop for all things home that we are today.

From the original humble beginnings as a paint store, owners Eric and Paula Rich have branched out into many new exciting areas. Their desire to connect with their customers on a more personal level gave rise to their wonderful gift department, which is beloved by our local community and visitors from further afield.

Davis Home Trends now stocks everything you need for a beautiful and comfortable home with quality, locally designed furniture and stunning bedding and soft furnishings to boot, providing even more value to their loyal customers.

Though the store has taken on many different forms since it began in 1968, some things remain the same. Owners Eric and Paula still focus on listening and responding to the wants and needs of their clients, sourcing American-made products to support the community, and providing a warm and welcoming experience to everyone who walks through their doors.

Meet Owners, Eric & Paula Rich

Paula and Eric Rich are the dedicated owners of Davis Home Trends.

Eric started out with his own gardening and lawn care service before running his own successful window company for over 15 years. He always found himself working various labor jobs, enjoying having an avenue to channel his initiative and interest in trades.

At a young age, Paula entered the construction industry working in admin, giving her great insight into the industry and shaping her future career path. She moved into marketing and sales, where she found her passion for customer service and helping her clients make informed decisions to better their homes.

In 2006, Paula and Eric met at a corporate function when they were both working in the window industry and began dating. Shortly after, Paula took a retail position at Davis Home Trends in the hopes of finishing college and figuring out what was next.

In what she thought was going to be a day job, she found herself a home. Previous owners Ralph and Patti Sparks recognized her experience, skill, and ambition, and offered her a sales position in the company, which would end up sealing her entire future with Eric.

Being the close-knit team Davis Home Trends was and still is, Patti commented early on that Paula and Eric should get married and buy the store from them. On a date with Eric, Paula jokingly shared Patti's thoughts, to which he agreed was a great idea! And the rest is history.

Fast forward 10 years to 2016, Paula and Eric were now married, and had started the process of becoming the new owners of Davis Home Trends. The store has played a major role throughout their relationship, bringing them closer together, and creating the foundation for their future continuing on the tradition of the family-run business.

Paula and Eric are committed to serving their treasured community for decades to come, upholding the store as the cherished establishment it has been known as since the late ‘60’s. Their mission is to provide the highest quality products with the friendliest, most personal service around.

Come by our wonderful store to meet Paula and Eric in person, and get help finding your next custom piece for your home.

Bringing the best home products to the heart of our community

See all the nice things local customers had to say about Davis Home Trends. We appreciate their kind words!

I found Davis Home Trends this past summer when looking for pool supplies. They turned me onto the “Turbo Shock” treatment, and let me tell you it worked wonders! The staff explained what to do and it was super simple. I stopped in today to grab more and was stunned at their Christmas inventory. Needless to say I was so happy to get a jump start on my Christmas shopping while still being “productive”. Go support your local businesses people! They’re working hard to keep us happy.

I have been a steady customer (swimming pool owner) to this business since we moved to Davis over 25 years ago, through changes in ownership. The level of quality and consideration has never wavered in that time. In fact, it only seems to be improving, as I return with new challenges and am consistently met with nothing short of friendship. Imagine that! A business where you show up and feel the people looking after you are actually your friends! It simply speaks to their commitment to their products and to the community they serve. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality service!

I work down the street from Davis Home Trends and I love visiting this gem of a store. This is my go to place for unique gifts and last minute finds on my way to lunch with a friend. I just visited yesterday and they now have their Christmas Collections out. I look forward to this every year!! My Husband loves the Pillow, sheets and bedding I found here last year. Definitely my favorite store in Davis!!!

They are always willing to help. I needed some to teach me how to balance my swim spa water. No problem helping me. This time was looking for a repair person to help me fix my swim spa .They are not selling spas, however still was willing to pass along numbers of people that might be able to help me. They sell a large selection of home specialty items. I would always recommend them for pool and spa supplies.

- Jonathan Cowan

They are amazingly helpful, always service oriented, and want to help you with anything - in the most inexpensive ways for you. I have bought a spa from them, chemicals, replacement parts, and many other things. They'll advise you about whatever you need, thinking about what is best for you.
