Furniture in Algarve

Post Posted: Mon Apr 27, 2009 1:35 am

Only recently posted about buying in UK and shipping the furniture.

Been trawling through things on the internet and I have come up with some possible shops, but wonder if anyone could say if they are still worth visiting. Want (preferrably) English beds, sofa, garden furniture, TV etc.
Preferrably near to Lagoa.

de Borla, Moviflor, Planet sofa, conforama, interforme, moveison,e.leclerc, in-home. Some of the postings were from 2006. Also I have a Makro card and understand so long as we have a fiscal number we can shop there. Do they have furniture/electrics there? Our Makro in Surrey has electrics but nothing much furniture wise so wonder if Algarve is much the same. Thanks. Rolling Eyes

We were in Makro recently in Guia, and they had a very small amount of furniture, so I don't think you'd find much.

Apart from the usual suspects (whose virtues i've xtolled to others... moviflor, conforama, etc) how about IKEA in Seville. It's actually easier to drive from that one, than the portuguese one in Lisbon.

You would obviously want to check out the portuguese website & prices, but it could be an idea.

Also we bought table, chairs, sofas etc about 5 years ago from Olhau (apols if spelling wrong) but its basically going t'other way from Faro. There's the main Moviflor in Olhao, which is good. But in the end we bought from a big place oppoosite... struggloing to remember the name, but i'm sure you'd find it, if you found Moviflor.

Happy hunting... and i'd say generally there's a lot more choice now than we were buying! Wink

Hi Yvette,

As the Pet Shop Boys might say "Go West" along the N125.

Jardilar & Moveison in Torre/Chincato good range of outdoor furniture.

Furniture World at Chinicato - Beds, Tables, Chairs & some sofas.

Planet Sofa in Lagos Torraltinha - good range.

DecordadoraBela in Almadena - all sorts of good quality PT-Made furniture.


Oh - and the one in Portimao whose nameI can't remember - 4 floors jammed solid with stuff.


The Air Of Heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears.

Thank you we will have a look at some of the places in May and then again in July as we are only coming out for a couple of days. It should give us food for thought. In relation to IKEA presumably the furniture would be the same as the UK. Can any one recall the shop that sells English beds - is is in Almancil?

There are two shops that I know about that sell English beds.

Style Furnishings between Alcantarilha and Porches on the EN125 next to SACL.

Bedrooms Extra on EN125 at Odiaxere/Chinicato next to AIM removals.

There is a company selling English bed linen at Almancil called Yorkshire Linen.
