Where to buy household furniture and goods in Sydney

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

We have just relocated to Sydney and are in the process of renting our first property and need to buy furniture and various household items.

 

Where is the best place to go for these things? i.e. is there an equivalent of DFS etc.

 

Thanks,

 

Chris and Sarah

There is Ikea and Harvey Norman. I don't know what DFS is I'm afraid.

Hi there,

we moved to Sydney in June last year and this is what we found :) :

IKEA - for furniture, kitchen items, bedding

fantastic furniture - got living room and dining room furniture, have to say the quality of the dining chairs especially isn`t great but the rest of the items ( table, couch), are fine

appliances - http://www.2ndsworld.com.au/ , these are items that are last year`s model, end of the line, in a damaged packaging etc which kicks the price down while you still get a well working appliance ( got fridge and washer)

for small stuff like kitchen things etc there is IKEA again, Kmart, Big W, Target

Got a nice set of cast iron pots from ALDI, they still work very well after 10 months use

 

It`s going to be quite a chunk of money. If you don`t mind used furniture or appliances, there is always www.gumtree.com.au

if you want new stuff go to fantastic furniture, they have packages so you always get heaps for your money,

 

 

if you want second hand stuff go to Op Shops like St Vincent De Paul, the big stores like the Brookvale one, they have great stuff that is sooooo cheap. You can pick up some really good pieces

 

 

 

 

if not try council clean up in the rich areas, found so much good stuff doing that

and what about white goods? Are the big chains really the best place to go?

Depends how much you want to spend, and what quality you want.

 

When we first arrived, we did a Fantastic Furniture package. First rented the furniture for a year and then brought a package.

The idea was to have this cheaper stuff for about 5 years before upgrading to a better quality brand like Nick Scali Furniture....... But the Fantastic Furniture really was actually fantastic, and the stuff has lasted almost 20 years.


OMFG. These baked beans are lethal..............
