Singapore furniture costs

Post by aus_xpat » Tue, 31 Jan 2006 7:12 pm

Hi all... been lurking on this forum for awhile.

I've recently moved to Singapore, and am now looking for a 2BR condo. From what I've seen, the furnished ones (old and new) have minimal, below average quality furniture, so I am considering purchasing furniture and moving into a partially furnished place.

The company that I worked for previously has agreed to assist with moving some stuff from my last home in Bangkok, so I am weighing up whether to buy some furniture in thailand and then ship it to singapore (at no cost), or to just buy the furniture here.

Can someone who has experience living (or purchasing furniture) in both cities please let me know whether furniture prices are largely different (beds, sofa's, dining tables, etc).

To give you an example of prices in Thailand, check out this site:

(SGD$1 = THB24)

Thanks.

I've just returned from my trip to Thailand.. I can confirm that decent quality furniture in Thailand is considerably cheaper than here in Singapore.

Total cost for a King Sized Sealy mattress and wooden base, computer desk and chair, designer sofa, designer coffee table and dining table = SGD$4000

For similar furniture in Singapore... I would need to outlay about $6000. If I had to pay for my shipping, I would probably just buy it here.
