Dan shot me a SMS and asked me where did I buy the patio furniture. I believe it is because of this picture I posted yesterday
I replied with the brief location. Since this may be an interesting question for people relocating to Shanghai, let me share the answers about where I typically buy furniture in Shanghai.
上海仙霞店 Xian Xia Store
88 Xian Xia West Road (near Hami Road)
* 地 址：上海长宁区仙霞西路88号（哈密路口）
This is the other store that I didn’t visit yet.
上海莘松店 Xin Song Store
* 地 址：上海市闵行区莘松路855号百饰得装饰名品城1楼东南侧
Besides Hola, IKEA is obviously another option. I have many articles on IKEA.
Here are some:
- IKEA, Xuhui Store in Shanghai
- Went to IKEA Again
- Bulk Purchase from IKEA
- IKEA (Shanghai) Pictures
- IKEA Becomes Cheap in China
- New IKEA Store Opens in Shanghai
- More IKEA Furniture in my Home
For relocators, IKEA is a good option, although if you know places like Hola, you may prefer to go there.
B&Q is mainly for construction materials. They also have furniture sections, featuring low price and low quality furniture. The one I visited most is the one near the Long Yang Road Metro Station.
Other Furniture Stores
Besides these standard stores, the stores I visited most are local, big stores. Here are some:
JSWB, or 吉盛伟邦.
They offer some “serious” furniture – I mean the unique, and more expensive goods.
You can find their store locations at this page.
Near ever JSWB, there are many others stores. They are not famous, but offers good selections. You can try any of them – I am not able to name some of them though.
