Where to buy a lamp in Zurich
 
Feel quite frustrated when try to buy a lamp in Zurich.
Went to several biggest electronics store like Media Market or Fust and all I can find are only bulbs,and no lamps.
Ask the stuff there where i can buy a lamp and they do not know
Are the Swiss people here only need bulbs and create the rest of the lamp by themselves? Why buying a simple lamp is so difficult here
Need to stay in darkness for one more night. Sign

Furniture shops, Ikea, Micasa, Pfister etc but of course not an electronics store.

As k and e mentioned, electronics stores here, such as Fust and Mediamarkt, don't usually sell lamps. For that, you usually have to go to a furniture store or shop online.

e.g. https://www.lampenwelt.ch/, which has a rather large selection.

You can also usually find some for sale at home improvement stores like OBI and Jumbo.

Lampenwelt if you want online. And of course the Swiss people buy lamps....

Thanks for both of your replies. Now I know that lamp is not considered electronics but furniture. This is quite different when compared to Asian countries, where we normally buy lamps in electronics stores.

Thanks again

https://www.ricardo.ch/de/c/lampen-u...t-40444/lampen This is where I’d look. Online secondhand that allows you to narrow the search to your vicinity. We got our last lamp at Brockenhaus Zürich: http://www.zuercher-brockenhaus.ch/

actually never noticed that but true!

my humble "theory"... since art nouveau, modernism, and all those art and design movements lamps have been a very good medium for craftsmanship and design thus they're put together with the other designer furnitures, you could get fancy lamp shades without the bulb and in the furniture store you get to see if the tiffany glass matches your table. :D

probably BS, might be a better reason.

This is tutti. It is a small ads website, with both new and second-hand goods.
You can set parameters to limit the geography by canton or post-code, and price, whether you'd like to view only private sellers, etc.

Also Bau+Hobby, Conforama and many brockis. A number of ours are from Lidl because they had ones with a USB socket which I find very handy.

Feeling your pain,was hunting them down too and found lights and lamps at lampenwelt.ch they have everything fron ceiling lights,wall lights, floor lamps,bulbs and cables etc. Delivered to your door, but no installation. Most shops dont offer electric work/installation of lights btw, you gotta find a handyman/electric or be brave enough to do it yourself. Or opt for a plug and shine lighting solution...

I find ikea a good place to shop for lamps. They have a decent collection and quite affordable
