Try to avoid peak hours like afternoons and evenings any day of the week. Otherwise, pop on down to your local store, find what you need and have them deliver your new furnishings pronto.
Household items have a large mark-up which you’ll avoid by shopping during these weeks of the year.
I sometimes walk through it for fun when passing by. Great stuff: innovative, interesting, and chic.
You can find some great deals and some expensive deals.
Usually you’ll find good quality however. Look around on some of the shopping and high streets in your new neighbourhood, you’ll probably find at least one. Avoid buying electronic items from these places if you need them to last long, instead stick to the department stores or electrodomesticos. Not in a department store mind you, but go hit the markets where you can haggle them down 50% on occassion. This can save you tons of money on bigger furniture items and you’ll find some nice artesan crafts. This means that for a nominal cost of, say, 10, 000€ (ranging between 5k-20k) you can damn near furnish your entire place.
She was concerned that she wouldn’t have the time to pick everything out, arrange for transport, put it together, etc. The furniture pack took care of this for her. She says she’ll slowly start picking up her own pieces as she goes.
I can see how a furniture pack would be especially useful for those who purchase real estate for investment or to rent out. Note that your place probably won’t be the most memorably decorated however. Wander through the streets and you’ll find some real gems amid the broken shelves, bug-infested matresses and sun-warped tables.
I know it might sound bad, but sometimes you find something unique or special, or even brand new. Browse through the page for details about all the available items.

This article will enlighten you about its rich history. The straight-grained, highly figured reddish-brown hardwood was imported as massive trunks that produced the widest boards. However, this timber of choice didn’t get recognition as furniture timber until the first half of the 18th century. That’s when cabinetmakers began looking for alternatives for furniture making. By then, a greater number of the country’s elite were ready to purchase the latest fashion for mahogany which allowed a level of opulence never previously seen. The story of mahogany is not the story of brown furniture – you will have to look elsewhere for that!
