When you move to a new country, one would think that getting started (at least when it comes to furnishing an apartment) would be quite simple, but what most people don’t consider is that the shops you were used to having back home (for me this is Walmart, Costco, The Bay, etc.) are likely not offered in Germany.
That means in addition to furnishing your apartment (unless you decide to rent a furnished apartment – then there are other things you need to know), you have to familiarize yourself with all your options before picking a shop that suits your price range and style. So, to help you out, we’ve put together a list of the best furniture shops in Düsseldorf!
Wayfair.de offers tons of stylish and affordable options when it comes to furniture and stylings for your new apartment. Instead of actually going to a shop to pick up your furnishings on your own, Wayfair.de allows you to buy it online and offers free shipping on orders over 30 Euro. While it is nice to be able to go look at furniture and pick it up yourself, many expats run into the issue of how they’re going to get it home. Delivery at most stores can be rather expensive, which is where Wayfair has gained a huge part of the market.
If you’re more of an online shopper, Otto.de also has a wide range of both affordable and stylish furnishings for your home. You can often find more expensive designs and have your purchases delivered straight to your door.
I guess IKEA doesn’t need much explaining. If you’re looking for affordable furniture though, IKEA is likely your second best option in Düsseldorf. I’ll be honest and admit that most of the time I head to IKEA it’s for their soft-serve ice cream and hot dogs! 🙈
Dänisches Bettenlager has a similar style and quality mark to IKEA and ROLLER. There is a mix of products, both good and average quality. They also have a nice line of teak and oak wood chairs, tables, and living room furniture too.
Similar to IKEA, Hoffner is a large department store offering you absolutely everything you need for your new home. They even have a restaurant which I particularly love! Hoffner is a bit more pricey than IKEA, though I find most of their products to be a bit more chic and sturdy.
If you’re looking for cheap and affordable furniture for your flat, ROLLER is the place to go! You can buy furniture, paint supplies, lighting, kitchen supplies and much more. As far as quality goes, they have a good mix. Some of their furniture will last you a while, other stuff is just particle board with a wood optic that may work for a couple of years.
Schaffrath has a good mix of affordable and pricey options that are more exclusive than the above-mentioned shops. I always call it the smaller, stylish IKEA as there is also a restaurant inside, and walking through the store can often be a day trip in itself.
Stilwerk is for those who love the newest in brands and stylish decor in their homes. They offer a wide selection of brand names and unique furniture pieces for your home on 5 different levels in a beautiful glass building located near the Königsallee.
Amazon.de is another online option where you can often find both cheap and stylish options. Amazon North America doesn’t offer quite the incredible selection as they do here in Germany, so you may be pleasantly surprised as to what exactly you can purchase here.
Of course, how can one forget all the awesome secondhand furniture shops around Düsseldorf?! I think my entire flat is furnished from these awesome stores. We put together a list of the best secondhand furniture shops in Düsseldorf too, be sure to check it out! You can also check the local flea markets for some great finds too!
If you’re willing to travel a little outside of the city, there are also many other great options like POCO, XXXLutz, Seats & Sofas, Vonnahme, and HARDECK. These are all similar to IKEA and ROLLER, affordable and filled with a great selection.
