Have you moved to the city and looking to buy good furniture in Mumbai that looks stylish but not very heavy on the pocket? Or you are renovating your home and want to buy good mid-range furniture which can fit the space that you have? Then read on.
When I started to scout for furniture, I realized that it was so difficult to get quality furniture that fits my budget and suits my taste. I also realized that the entire city is full of furniture showrooms but it was very difficult to get something customised. Hence, this blog post is to help fellow Mumbaikars who are looking to buy mid-range to high range furniture for their homes.
Lifestyle Stores with compressed ply furniture
Many of us visit lifestyle stores like Hypercity, Home Centre, Home Shop to get mid-range furniture. These stores also offer great deals during festivals. But keep in mind, not all of their furniture is made from solid wood or pure leather. As an aware customer, ask all the details before you invest. Many of them use compressed ply to create furniture that is prone to swelling during monsoon season or if sprayed with anti termite solution. Though, Home Town in Vikhroli has some good home decor items.
Prices may vary between 25 thousand to 1 lakh.
Many a times they sell bedroom/living room complete set at a discount price.
Rent furniture for short term use
Before investing in furniture, ask yourself if it is for long term or short.
If you intend to use the furniture for short term, then you can even hire furniture from brands like Furlenco, Rentomojo City Furnish, Rent Matcha, Furniture on Rent, etc.
If you intend to buy furniture that will last you at least 5 years then you can order online from brands that offer solid wood furniture like Fab Furnish, Pepperfry and Urban Ladder, etc. I am not a big fan of their boxy designs and neither can we customise most of the designs to our liking. Therefore, I prefer to scout furniture locally.
If you also want to have customised furniture then you should look at buying your furniture from the stores that offer stylish to suit every pocket.
