Wallpaper & Soft Homefurnishing

Hi - I've now been here about 3 months living in the Bulach area. I'd really like to make my house a home and am searching for somewhere that sells wallpaper and soft furnishings (other than IKEA). I've been to COOP Hobby and OBI but not the range I was expecting. Any ideas? Zurich area would be good and Zurich City would be event better. TQ x

Re: Wallpaper & Soft Homefurnishing

If high-school-art-teacher style is your thing, you can't go far wrong with Cachet.

We just bought some of these to put in front of the fireplace:



... they also do cushions, cushion covers and fabrics.

In Zurich, they have shops in Loewenplatz (near the main station) and just behind Starbucks at Bellevue.

That's because they don't eat brown sugar in their childhood.

I like it more masculine, so my shops won´t do it for you, but there are quite a few things in fair trade shops, the big Globus and Manor shops, and depending on what you want perhaps even in small city centre shops (I love my interior architect near my place, private normal people can go and see him and he helps even if that is peanuts to him compared to his deals with refurbishment missions for architects). About the latest solution, I must say it is wonderful to have access to italian catalogues and having my one little piece sent together in the same shipping than a bigger order to save time and money.
It you only want little deco stuff, then go for the small shop approach combined with Globus/Manor. If you want to listen to me, otherwise, just don't.
