Anyone have experience buying furniture in France?

I live in Basel, within walking distance to France. I like the selection of furniture better in France, it's not just about the cheaper prices.

Is it easy to buy furniture in France and have it delivered to Switzerland? And are the costs for importing so high that it's not even worth it?

I know there are tax websites etc. that have been posted on the forum for me to visit, but they honestly confuse me.

I plan on spending anywhere from 1000-3500 Euros on furnishing an entire household, not all from one store and not bought all at the same time.

My taste is homey, and everything here in Switzerland is just too modern or too grandma-like.

Anyone have experience doing this?
