where to buy furniture to kit out the flat?

Post by the colemans » Tue, 02 Oct 2007 6:58 pm

Hello there,
We are moving to Singapore in 2 weeks and will be needing a sofa, dining table, coffee table etc. We would like to buy all we need from the same shop and have it delivered as we have 2 toddlers who can make browsing difficult at times. I know the easiest place is probably Ikea but I'm struggling to find things I particularly like in the catalogue. Is there an alternative shop to Ikea that we could go to? We like the modern furniture as we have a modern flat in waterplace. Any ideas would be much appreciated, Thank you, Katherine

HI

Try The Furniture Mall, it has lots of different furniture shops in one mall (obviously!) Can't remember the address but I'm sure you could do a search for it.

Good luck with your move!

You could try the Great world city mall. It's obviously not just one shop - but it is all under one roof, which should minimise the wandering required. There are a lot of furniture shops in there - which are all pretty modern.

If you decide to go for something a little bit more local you should try a Barang Barang, who have a few shops - some of which are huge. I can't remember where the huge one is - but you should be able to find out on their website

Ikea is great as it has everything and very affordable when you are buying everything at one time :)
