Let's put together a list of furniture stores

We need to go furniture shopping, but would prefer something different than Ikea and Conforama this year. Pfister is too expensive for us.

What else exists in CH besides Ikea, Conforama, Migros' Micasa and Pfister? Could you guys share your favorite furniture stores in Zurich area? Maybe we could put together a list, it could be useful for many. Thanks in advance!

I think you omitted Interio and that would be about all. Try Germany.

Re: Let's put together a list of furniture stores

Maisons du Monde has replaced Fly in Dietlikon, something I am rather pleased about since they have a bit of a different style going than the other places. For instance, they have bars (as in booze and houseparties) for the home, something the other places don't really seem to have or only at exorbitant prices. They also have ranges of furniture that follows a theme, such as "Maine", which has the sort of east coast seaside chic going. Definitely worth checking out. Price-wise they are somewhere between Interio and Pfister. Depends on the items.

Cachet is also a good place if you like colourful stuff and they stock an amazing brand of Swiss scented candles called Schulthess, I often give these as gifts.

That's where you are going wrong. A lot of furniture shops in CH have recently closed down or been bought by the groups like Pfister as more and more people buy abroad.

I just got my new dining table and side boards delivered today from the not-so-well-named Moebel Dick. http://www.moebel-dick.de/
Massive shop ten minutes across the border and on any given day to I bet that 80-90% of their customers are Swiss based. They take care of all the tax and customs stuff for me and even let me pay with a Swiss Einzahlungsschein on their Swiss account in CHF...

Long story short: They are more pricey than IKEA but definitely cheaper than Pfister while delivering equal to better stuff.

I am getting another delivery on Thursday by "Wohnform" in Konstanz (http://www.wohnform-konstanz.de/) as I was looking for a specific designer brand. Again did the German shops beat Swiss prices by a mile and take care of all the tax savings and delivery for me.

If you are looking at high-end stuff that is expensive, but don't want to get Switzerlanded... I love this shop in Waldshut. Look out for their sales... http://www.seipp.com/

Re: Let's put together a list of furniture stores

What about Depot?

Otherwise you can also try www.home24.ch or http://www.fashionforhome.de/. Fashionforhome delivers to Switzerland.

Alternatively, there is http://www.moebelmarkt-dogern.de across the border. There are quite a few furniture shops in Waldshut-Tiegen area.

Another option could be to order online and pickup from the border eg. WorldPaketShop.

Re: Let's put together a list of furniture stores

Möbel Dick, Lauchringen.
http://www.wohnparc-dick.de/
(Huge, affordable, delivery to Switzerland)

As zou know the area around Dübendorf is where manz furniture stores are.

Moebel Märki
www.moebelmaerki.ch
Industriestrasse 13/Volkiland,
8604 Volketswil

Schubiger Möbel
www.schubiger.ch/
Ueberlandstrasse 423, 8051 Zürich
(+/- Pfister Price Range)

diga möbel
www.digamoebel.ch
Neugutstrasse 81, 8600 Dübendorf
(If you are after the most boring pieces imaginable)

Möbel Weber
Usterstrasse/Schanzstrasse 2, 8330 Pfäffikon ZH
(Never been there, Bing recommended it)

Lipo Möbel
www.lipo.ch
Industriestrasse 31, 8305 Dietlikon


Disregarding price tags:

No 1 Life Style Shop in Au/Wädenswil (next to where the Brocki is)
http://www.no1shop.ch/

It is not my favourite, and I expect that you can source the stuff cheaper yourself. But at least it is different.

it has furnitures from Kare Design, which themselfe have a store in Dübendorf, Stettbachstrasse 2.

www.edelwiis.ch/
Forchstrasse 127, 8032 Zürich

www.boconcept.ch
Hardturmstrasse 126,8005 Zürich

(Not in Zurich)
www.letresor.ch in Monthey (at the verry end of the Valais)

Re: Let's put together a list of furniture stores

For wooden furniture made of old wood: www.woodfactory.ch
Prices are very good, style is industrial, vintage, retro
For used furniture from the '70 and '80, www.moebel-zuerich.ch, they have a lot of products and it is also not too expensive

We get all our furniture here. We always try to shop around, check out Ricardo etc, but in the end these guys are great and sort everything out. (Tax, shipping, installation etc etc) The prices, compared to CH and even the UK are really good.

Re: Let's put together a list of furniture stores

We've had great luck with https://www.goodform.ch

Online only, but everything we've ordered is great quality (dining table and chairs, bookcases, lamps etc.) Liked them so much, we've placed a second order.
