Maisons du Monde - online shopping

Has anyone bought anything from them online? Once I found their prices in EUR, and the next day the prices went to CHF! Strange.

Do they charge in CHF or EUR? Anyone knows if they ship from France, or do they have a warehouse here in CH?

Thanks in advance
CM

They have some stores here in Romandie so maybe they ship from there for Swiss customers?
You could try emailing them to find out.

Yes, available at http://www.maisonsdumonde.com/CH/fr. Agree, their stuff look really nice - hope they are really that nice. They remind me of Dutch furniture and design - stylish and modern

Thanks for that - I tried to find on their site where they had their shops, but missed the one in Etoy (by Lausanne)! I could not see any other shops though in Romandie. Do they have any other?

Not sure about others as that's the one I've been to.
They have stores in Belgium and I used to get some really nice things from them there.

Re: Maisons du Monde - online shopping

I have bought most of my furniture through them, from their online French website. If I remember correctly (two years ago), all prices were in EUR but you would eventually get a reimbursement of the French VAT. The Swiss customs was dependent on a truck driver, and I could never figure out the rates charged (but it never went over 7-8% if I remember correctly).

It worked pretty fine - but of course with some usual hassles. Often the site would show you delivery time 3-5 weeks to be doubled at the payment, or even after the payment was made. My two sofas took like seven weeks to arrive despite the site informing three (though they did send me a letter saying that this is due to their moving of business 'from China back to France, to ensure quality...'....lol).

On quality, mostly I am satisfied, but the sofas are not as good as I would expect (if compared let's say to Pfister).

I suppose it is also possible to order from their Swiss site, and frankly can't remember why I did not use them, but used French instead. Probably they didn't have sofa I wanted.

They have a store in CH, near Aubonne, Litoral center.

Or, which is more likely, because they think EUR/CHF rate is around 1.45

Lucky for me that my nearest is Besançon, France, just 1 hour away and a beautiful trip. Lucky too that my friend over the border is happy to take mail order for me.
