Home Improvements: Furniture Stores in Shenzhen

Home Improvements: Furniture Stores in Shenzhen
By Pete Cowell , eChinacities.com

Maybe you just rented an unfurnished apartment in order to save money after recently moving to Shenzhen, or maybe your tastes aren’t the same as your elderly landlord’s when it comes to the furniture. Thankfully Shenzhen has a large array of furniture stores that are host to a range of different styles to suit your budget and preferences. From replica Qing dynasty wardrobes to classic European accessories, almost any kind of furniture can be found in Shenzhen to personalise your living space.

1) IKEA  宜家
Although IKEA is a somewhat ubiquitous chain—possibly the McDonald’s of the furniture world—there is no doubt about it that this Swedish furniture giant is a great place to start if you are trying to redecorate your apartment on a budget. Comfy sofas can be picked up for as little as 1000 RMB, and they will deliver your items and assemble them in your home. The range of items for sale is simply huge, but be sure to check availability of stock via the website first.

IKEA (Nanshan Branch)
Add: Beihuan Lu, Nanshan District, Shenzhen (at the intersection of Shahe Dong Lu)
地址:深圳市南山区北环路宜家家居附近 (沙河东路口)
Tel: 400 800 2345
Opening hours: Daily, 10:00-22:00
Website: http://www.ikea.com/cn/en/store/shenzhen
See website for information on other branches in Shenzhen

2) B&Q   百安居
This British chain now has two branches in Shenzhen, making it easier than ever to personalise your apartment with all the accessories you miss from back home. For example, rather than use your balcony as a repository for your dirty washing, why not check out the range of BBQs for sale at B&Q and have your friends over for a party. Their website isn’t particularly user friendly, so it is worth just visiting their outlets in Luohu or Futian to see what other items they have for sale. They will also be more than happy to completely redesign and install a new kitchen for you, if that is what you want!

B&Q (Futian branch)
Add: Yunsong Building, Tairanjiu Lu, Futian District, Shenzhen
Tel: 755 2593 7788
Opening hours: Daily, 09:00-21:00
Website: www.bnq.com.cn

3) Metro  麦德龙
Another convenient shop is Metro. This place is huge, and in addition to its main business of stocking lots of different types of imported Western food, Metro also sells many household items that make life more tolerable in Shenzhen. From dishwashers to professional kitchen knives, you can find lots of day-to-day items here that might not necessarily come as standard in your rented apartment. 

Metro (Nanshan Branch)
Add: 255 Shahedong Lu (in European City building 4), Nanshan District, Shenzhen
Tel: 755 8602 8888
Opening hours: Daily, 09:00-22:00
Website: www.metro.com.cn

4) Meten  美庭品位加剧
If you have a little extra cash to spare and want to splurge on some real luxury items, then Meten near B&Q in Luohu definitely won’t disappoint. This is the place to go if you want to set up your flat in a contemporary European style. It sells really expensive and beautiful furniture, including sumptuously carved king sized beds that make you feel like a medieval monarch. This is definitely a place for the well-heeled of Shenzhen, and is more likely to be popular with the growing class of bourgeois Chinese and visiting Hong Kongers rather than the expat community. 

Add: 2-3F Building 2, 4008 Bao’an Bei Lu, Luohu District, Shenzhen
Tel: 755 2593 7979
Website: www.metenliving.com

5) Old Peking  市老北京古典家具店

For a more authentic Chinese feel in your apartment, why not check out some of the items for sale in Old Peking. As the name suggests, this little shop sells replica Qing dynasty furniture, and it does a roaring trade. Although many of the items here are incredibly expensive—a wardrobe or chest of drawers could set you back around 30,000 RMB—there is no doubt that Old Peking has everything you need to give your apartment an imperial atmosphere. It’s a great place to wander around (it looks much like an art gallery), and you will see some truly stunning Chinese furniture.

Add: 1-107, Haishang Shijie, Xinghua Lu, Shekou, Nanshan District, Shenzhen
Tel: 139 2283 1060, 86 755 26831119
Opening hours: 10:00-21:30

6) Bydidhome
A relative newcomer to the world of interior design and luxury furnishing in Shenzhen, Bydidhome have only been open for a few months, but they are already starting to make a name for themselves. They specialise in upmarket European furniture edged with a contemporary design, giving their products a uniqueness that can’t be found in other mainstream outlets. In short, it is boutique furniture that has been sourced in Europe, and it’s definitely going to be a hit with socially mobile and style-conscious young people.

Add: 133 Building A5 Phase II, North District, OCT Loft, Nanshan District, Shenzhen
地址:深圳市南山区华侨城(OTC-LOFT)创意园二期北部工业区A51 33号
Web: www.bydidhome.com (under construction)
