Furniture shops in Northern Ireland

Postby zukki » Fri May 11, 2007 12:42 pm

Girls, I was thinking you might know something about my question...

I'm thinking about going up North to get my furniture as I live close to the border and can use a Southern VAT no to get the stuff a bit cheaper. I've saved money on my applicances so hopefully I can do the same with the furniture.

My question is, does anyone know if there is a particular town/city that has loads of furniture shops? I know, obviously, Belfast will but I'm over in the NorthWest so I was thinking Derry/Newry might be good but I've never been. Just trying to save myself an wasted trip up.

Thanks for any help.

I think Belfast is your best bet really. Im from Derry and cant think of many nice furniture places. Maybe someone will correct me, but we've usually got ours in Dekko in Belfast as there isnt much here.

Depending on what you need If you are in Derry you might find what you're looking for in the industrial estates; pennyburn, springtown etc... but there isnt a huge selection.

Hi Zukki,
I think Belfast would be your best bet to be honest. There are 2 furniture shops that stand out in my mind 'Curio' and 'Creations' (their prices vary from reasonable to expensive). I have purchased furniture in both shops and I would really recommend them if you are coming up north.

Hope this helps

The thing about these indpendent shops is that you have a better chance of getting a bit of discount :o0 The big shops in Belfast will not give you any discount and you usually have to wait up to 12 weeks for delivery for large items - whereas smaller shops sell off the shop floor O-O

hi
if you have a vat reg no. it doesnt matter about the vat whether you get it in the north or the south, alot of places will charge the vat anyway and you have to fill out a form when it comes to the end of your tax year and send it of to the north to get you money back.
just keep an eye out for the sales in the south aswell because the pound is strong at the moment and it could cost you more
have fun shopping

Does the furniture market become well in your place?

Postby orientantique » Wed Aug 19, 2009 10:36 am

We're investigating the market to make our next plan. Does the furniture market become well in your place in the economy crisis envireoment? For example Asian and Chinese or western style furniture sales condition.
Any info would be appreciated.

Both these two shops are nice but too expensive even in sales. I work very near them both and always in them, just to look but I would see something I like and try find it elsewhere. You might get some statement pieces but to kit out your whole house from there would be mad. There is a place on Boucher Road that is like a warehouse but you can get lucky with some lovely furniture....it's called...wait for it....

Fantastic Furniture!!!

Also a shop opposite the Kennedy Centre in Belfast and I think they have very similar stuff to Creations but it's in West Belfast so can sell stuff more affordably

Also there is a shop called Wysebyse on the Cregagh Road and they have one on the Newtownards Road too and they have some nice things (some tacky stuff too) so would be worth a trip.

There's loads more outside city centre but that is all I can think of at the minute....maybe some other wollies can come up with some more suggestions outside of city centre
