Re: Where to buy leather sofa

Hi - Some good threads on general furniture shopping if you do an EF search - Worth shopping around as i got a great deal at Pfister after originally planning to buy at Interio or Ikea.

Some to Try...

Interio
Conforama
Micasa
Schubiger Mobel
FLY

Re: Where to buy leather sofa

Hi, I know you are looking to buy in Switzerland, but if you're anywhere close to the border with Germany, I'd recommend Möbel Markt in Dogern (http://www.moebelmarkt-dogern.de/). Unbeatable in terms of variety as well as prices. They are website is a rather poor representation of what they've got. The real thing is huge - 5 floors of endless furniture showrooms. Lots of EFers got their stuff from there as well . Oh, did I mention they deliver to Switzerland AND the price you see already includes that + mounting. Payment terms: 1/3 upon order, 2/3 upon delivery.

Re: Where to buy leather sofa

You are listed as being in Sydney. If you have kids then www.ricardo.ch is the place to look. On the left side you can narrow the search to a specific canton,

1 year old set of 3+2+1 black artificial leather CHF 350,-- Lucerne /Schweiz

Ricardo is great if you can manage in German and as always, it is buyer
beware.

We have a sofa set we bought from Möbel Pfister several years ago and the quality is great. They often have specials and their service is excellent.
If on special you may pay less than in Germany.

To the OP, are you looking to buy used or new?

Re: Where to buy leather sofa

Hi. We have 2 Natuzzi couches. I think they are great quality. The first was purchased about 5 years ago, light beige leather-we have 4 little kids and the couch still looks amazing. I recommend you ask at Natuzzi when they have their biannual "Lagerverkauf" in Horgen. It lasts 2 days and the couches are reduced up to 80%. Really nice leather couches cost less than you'd pay at ikea. I believe the sales take place around June and December.

Re: Where to buy leather sofa

I got my leather sofa from Brotz Moebel in Murg, Germany. I don't want to know how much would have cost me something like that in CH.

Re: Where to buy leather sofa

Have you looked and and rejected IKEA leather sofas?

If so would be interested if it was just the style/colour etc or something more, as I will probably also be soon looking there.

I have also used mobelmarkt dogern in DE. They have a huge selection and good quality items at much cheaper than CH prices. Its well worth the visit.
