Buying furniture in Zurich

Hi,

I'm looking to buy an office desk and chair, Is there any shops in Zurich that would sell something like this? or any Websites. Back in the UK id go to Office World or some place like that.

I looked at IKEA's website but my German is very bad and cant really understand anything on it

Any help would be much appreciated


Rich

Re: Buying furniture in Zurich

just go to ikea.com or any other English IKEA, get the names of the items you're interested and then search ikea.ch on the item name. It's good exercise as well.

You would be better off going straight to IKEA. I've not found anything closer with the same reasonable prices.

There is a good shop in Seefeld which sells ergonomic office furniture:

Mohn (site in German) located in Seefeldstr 45, 8008 Zürich.

Re: Buying furniture in Zurich

http://www.interio.ch/ -> Produkte -> Arbeiten -> Bürotische

or

http://www.interio.ch/ -> Möbelbörse -> Arbeiten

The second option gives you the chance to see what others are selling. Kinda like an old school noticeboard...

Ebay?

There is also Office World in Dübendorf (one train stop from Stadlehofen).

p.s. try www.freetranslation.com or similar German > English translations if you're stuck

Re: Buying furniture in Zurich

Hi Everyone, thanks so much for the input.
Is there another office store that is cheaper? Like Staples?
As I am looking at a 2-3 drawer filing cabinet!.. Know where i could find one... I looked at Office World website but it seems expensive.
Perhaps this is just the Swiss way!!?!
Thanks so much
Have a grand day!!
