But it is better crap then the rest like Lipo, Conforama.
Anyway i have no plans to bring my furniture back to UK and no plans to stay in Switzerland forever.
No it's not. Time is money and there is practically no way to get into and out of IKEA in under two hours and those two hours are hours of utter gloom and depression that I only survive by fantasisng about flame throwers and explosives. My BH ends up shooting three times our budget on all sorts of ultra junk that we never intended to buy and that we never use more than once. Taking all that into account, IKEA is horrendously expensive and ought to be banned under some Geneva Convention against mental torture. You know the guy who started it was a Nazi sympathiser? It shows.

You may want to have a look at schubiger möbel. They're located near the Glatt shopping center and it's a pretty big store.
i think you can also check our conforama and you may find some good furniture just for basic use and also some utility furniture.

...but they have 1 CHF hot dogs, refillable drinks, and Swedish meatballs. So people will still come and buy the cheap crap.

Re: Best places to buy furniture in Zurich?

If you don't mind used stuff, try Brockenhaus. There are several and we have bought a lot of great stuff there!

Re: Best places to buy furniture in Zurich?

Discovered two great places on Seesteasse in Au Wädenswil:

http://www.brockenstube.ch ( bargains.. Interesting stuff for men )

And next door...


lifestyle no. 1, ( Amazing, unique, funky and reasonably priced furniture)

Fun place to go, as they have a coffee bar to park your husband, as you shop.

Super international...owners are German, Swiss and American...I felt like I had landed in New York...)

Just look for the zebra building.

Anyone advice on good places to buy funiture in Zurich, - not IKEA and not hugely expensive?

Thanks!
Basically none. Rent a car if you don't already have one. Drive 50 minutes whatever direction north of your preference: Konstanz, Rheinfelden (e.g. MMZ-Moebel), Lauchringen (e.g Moebel Dick) and you will find top quality (e.g. Hulsta) reasonably priced, they will ship to CH and you get the tax difference rebate done for you. A no-brainer really.

Re: Best places to buy furniture in Zurich?

We find Micasa also reasonably priced and located in Dietlicon, so really close to Zürich. They have an online store as well.

Re: Best places to buy furniture in Zurich?

Not sure if this has been posted before... but so far for me it has been here... as in here the English Forum!


Best prices. Best sales people. Though was stung by a couple of people recently in charging me high prices for some not so good items (only me to blame for buying in a hurry and not checking first). I suppose the items I got for free from some really nice individuals more than make up for it.

Re: Best places to buy furniture in Zurich?

I sometimes scour the Brockis here in town and find, occasionally, good deals. The Brockenhalle, just off Seefeldstrasse, sometimes has great stuff (and they deliver within a certain radius). The giant Brocki over in Kreis 5 somewhere around Josefstrasse also is worth a gander.

Re: Best places to buy furniture in Zurich?

One of the surprises I've found here in Switzerland is that custom made wooden furniture is often no more, and sometimes quite a bit less, expensive than the mass produced stuff one finds at the usual stores.

I've had several pieces made here, all at prices less than what I would have paid for mass-produced, and of a significantly better quality that what I have seen available. Best bit - you can have something made to your dimensions, that actually fits your Swiss shoebox-sized home.

If there is a Möbelschreiner in your area, stop in for a chat.

Re: Best places to buy furniture in Zurich?

Good value for money is the furniture offer at Tchibo. It's irregular and available only online but the delivery is free.
