where to buy furniture

Post by london01 » Sun, 27 Dec 2009 7:21 pm

Hi,

Have bought most of the furniture for our new place but am still looking to buy a sofa and dining table.

Have been to Ikea, Barang Barang, V Hive and Lorenzo but the furniture I like is out of stock and will be for a long time! Have been told there is a Shopping Mall here that only sells furniture. Have searched but cant find it!

Does anyone know anywhere else I can buy modern furniture thats reasonably priced?

Thanks for your help.

is there anywhere else that sells furniture?? been to furniture mall and cant seem to find what i am after.. Park mall seems ridiculiously overpriced.

Going to check out IMM in jurong tomorrow but was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions.

Wondering if you found anything? We bought "leather" sofa 3 years ago when we thought we were only going to be in Singapore for 1 year so did not want to spend too much and it is litterally shedding.. So want to buy a good one this time.. Tried all the places that you mentioned and nothing like what I'm looking for ..

well these are the places i have tried with limited success

1) IMM - i think its got a decent sofa/ dining table range which is not too expensive

2) Park mall - expensive and in my opinon value not that great

3) Harvey norman (Millenia walk) - imported stuff so its up there in price but maybe cos im from australia i think design suits my taste more

4) dempsey road (kinda near jones) - nice but once again not cheap

5) Near my work place.. one of the side streets off church st in raffles place - its actually ok i think. More wood type design.

6) furniture mall - decent range but in terms of bed frame, didnt quite find anything i liked

i think if ur after a sofa, give IMM/ furniture mall a crack and if u willing to spend a touch more, visit hvn in millenia walk.. good luck n hope it helps

There is a number (5-7) of bigger furniture shops and 1-2 malls along Sungei Kadut Ave. Not sure about sofas and the quality but with a lot of stuff - we were there 1-1.5y ago looking for teak furniture. There is also a furniture mall on Upper Bukit Timah, behind the petrol station, ~opposite to the BT Nature Reserve. Various stuff including sofas. Again, not in our focus at that time but judging from the prices it should be a bit better quality than average :)

Thanks for suggesting Harvey Norman Millenia Walk. I hadn't thought about that even though I used to work nearby and "window shop" during lunch sometimes when I had nothing to purchase :-) Went there yesterday and found exactly what we were looking for.. Thanks again!
