Re: Jysk furniture

Jysk furniture is fine. It is probably slightly better quality than IKEA. We used to buy quite a lot of Jysk (Called Dänisches Bettenlager in Germany) furniture in Germany when we lived closer to the German border. It was good value for money.

Re: Jysk furniture

I have some occasional pieces I bought when we still had a branch in Basel and they're fine. Best buy was 2 grey faux leather storage boxes that double as seats, one is in the bedroom storing blankets and the other in the hall storing shopping bags. We sit on it to take our shoes off and it's very strongI also have a very nice white painted ladder shelf for books and a full length white mirror on a stand from there. I was sad when the Basel one closed as it wasn't very expensive by Swiss standards.

Re: Jysk furniture

In a budget and middle price segments Jysk furniture is a good choice (I only have 2 small tables and pergola flooring from them, though).
Picking it over Ikea, Conforama, Leroy Merlin, OBI etc. is mostly a matter of style you are looking for. The quality of materials are more or less the same across all of those stores and good enough for the price.
Just do not got for cheap particle board pieces, unless you are furnishing a rental place for a couple of years.

Additionally, I have several pieces from a very well-known and widely praised for their quality Swiss furniture store, and with all honesty I have much more headache with them than with IKEA Hemnes pieces of the same age.
