Where to buy furniture in Singapore?

Post by luluclau » Tue, 26 May 2009 11:29 am

We are moving to a new unfurnished house and we need to buy furniture.
Can anyone suggest nice places o buy affordable furniture that is not IKEA. Also is it cheaper/better to buy furniture from Malaysia? has anyone attempted?

You can try the Furniture Mall which is behind the Park Royal Hotel off Beach road.

Can also try here

Every town centre in any HDB estate will have numerous small mom & pop furniture stores that sell mostly locally make furniture as well. There are a number of factory cum showrooms in the Kranji Industrial estate as well on the north side of the island (near the water as this is were the logs come in for milling). I can't recommend anything specific out there but if you have transport a drive around the industrial estate might turn up some gems.

Barang Barang almost always has sales running. If the items you like aren't on sale, try waiting a bit. (And, the Great Singapore Sale is just around the corner, it starts this Friday - May 29)
