When making the move to a new country, many expats spend hours looking for the perfect home or condo in the best district, neighbourhood, or city they can find. They consider how they’ll get to their new home, and make arrangements to sell their old home and any belongings that are too big to take along. But few of them give much thought to where they’ll buy furniture and other sundry items for their new place.
If you’re considering buying or renting a home or condo in Bangkok, you might be wondering where you’ll find furniture and home décor stores once you get here. Luckily, this bustling city is full of unique, trendy, and affordable options, which will give you plenty of chances to find items that match your personal style. Here are just a few of the best stores in Bangkok for finding home décor and furniture.
If you’re interested in eco-friendly designs, Osisu is the place to go. This sleek, modern furniture store sells pieces crafted from leftover materials salvaged from construction sites, manufacturing facilities, and local communities. You’ll find lots of wooden tables and industrial-looking designs here. The furniture sold here is as much a work of art as it is functional.
Chatuchak Weekend Market is the ultimate Bangkok shopping experience. In a city that’s known for its market, this one stands out, due to its massive size and wide range of goods. There are more than eight thousand stalls at the market, which can seem overwhelming until you figure out that its divided into sections, and different sections are dedicated to different kinds of goods. You’ll find home goods and furniture in sections 1, 3, 4, 7, and 8. You’ll find better deals at the market than you’ll find in most shops. Some parts of the market are open through the week as well but Friday, Saturday and Sunday is when it really comes alive.
Located in the suburbs of Bangkok is a giant warehouse filled to the brim with quirky, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces. Papaya Vintage Shop has an eclectic mix of wares that is constantly changing and growing. A visit here is always a fun experience, because you never know what you might find. Don’t be surprised when you don’t see price tags on the items here; you have to go find someone to assist you with moving things, especially large items.
If you’re looking for affordable modern décor and furniture, look no further. Ikea, the Swedish home store that now has locations all over the world, has a location in Bangkok… and it is absolutely huge! You’ll find inexpensive beds, desks, sofas, and more, much of which is designed to fit into tight spaces, which is great if you’re renting or buying a small condo in downtown Bangkok. They also have bedding, art pieces, and other décor and home items that will help you make your new place feel like home. Most of their items come flat-packed, which makes them easy to transport, and they can be assembled by anyone with relatively little experience and few tools. You can also pay to have your items shipped to your new home and for a further additional fee the delivery people will assemble the items for you.
