Where to buy furniture

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

We need to buy some dinning chairs, bed, sofa etc, where are the best places to go other than Ikea that is not to expensive. I have found a website called Fantastic furniture - anyone know what they are like?

Fantastic furniture is at the very cheap end of the market and has a quality to match. If you need to fill a house fast and don't care if it lasts, it't the place.

 

We've found that moving one rung up the ladder to Super A Mart got us prices that weren't too bad--but at a quality that will last a good long time. Don't forget to haggle...we've never paid the full asking price.

Where are you? If in Melbourne head for Frankston-Dandenong Road in Dandenong it has all the furniture shops you could want

Fantastic furniture is cheaper \ lower end, but acceptable depending what you're after. We're in Sydney and tracked down our local 'Homemaker' centre - the closest one to us is the Supa Centre at Moore Park, there's also one at Alexandria.

Within the centres you'll find plenty of furniture chain stores...Freedom, Snooze, Harvey Norman, Domayne, plus family owned \ one-off stores.

We ended up buying nearly everything from Ikea as places like Nick Scali, King furniture, Adriatic were very nice but incredibly overpriced. Fantastic Furniture was cheap and looked cheap - think student houseshares, dodgy landlord cheap. Ikea wasn't too expensive and depending what you buy (some of their stuff is crap) looked not bad either. When you have to buy TVs, fridges, freezers, washing machines, dryers etc as well because they are not included in rentals you have to make sacrifices somewhere.

Fantastic furniture is very similar quality to Ikea. They do have better stuff at slightly higher prices but its not what id call long lasting furniture. I guess you get what you pay for.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...
