About Us

In 1983, Paul, Betty and Tom Rich opened Paul Rich & Sons...

on North Street in Downtown Pittsfield. 1983 was the beginning of years of exciting growth. The store started as one small storefront, but as neighboring stores closed and space became available, the business underwent five expansions. With the purchase of the Farrell-Sweeney building, Paul Rich & Sons now occupies the entire block, and offers off-street parking behind the store. In 2008, a major renovation morphed our turn of the century building into a magnificent 30,000 square foot showroom space, three floors with a complete design center. A full-service home furnishings and design store on the cutting edge of ever-changing home fashions providing customers with a unique opportunity to see a large selection of many styles of furniture, rugs, lighting, decorative accessories, handcrafted pieces and thousands of fabrics and finishes. Also, a comprehensive bedding selection housed on our lower floor showroom. Our experienced design team provides complimentary design services, floor layout, color ideas and more. Our entire staff is devoted to customer service and an “old world” experience second to none. We welcome independent designers and their clients.

With a full service warehouse and delivery service, our in-house team provides professional customer care and service to ensure our customers are happy with their furniture.  We also have a loyal following in New York, New Jersey, Boston, and beyond and our customers can expect the same professional delivery service as we offer in the Berkshires.

Betty and Paul have retired and live in their home in Richmond,MA but it is not uncommon to see them at the store, visiting and catching up with customers. Tom continues to run the business with Pam Rich, his partner in life and business.  They live in an 1890’s “work in progress” farmhouse in Pittsfield, MA where they have been busy raising three wonderful boys!
