Buying furniture in Barcelona

Where to buy furniture in Barcelona. Renting a furnished flat is usually quite a lot more expensive than an renting an unfornished apartment. It might be full of quite cheap or second hand furniture and not really worth the extra rental expense. It might be more comfortable to rent an empty flat and then buy cheap or second furniture yourself. Here are some tips for finding reasonably cheap or second hand furniture for your flat or apartment in Barcelona.

Ikea Barcelona
The Scandinavian furniture giant IKEA is the first stop for cheap and stylish furniture which is perfect for furnishing a flat. In fact most of the furniture in already furnished flats and apartments for holiday and long term rentals is  Ikea.  Ikea has three shops in town. >Ikea shops in Barcelona. Ikea also offer transport and assembly services and there are some private companies that also offer IKEA services. Outside the Ikea stores there are usually also some local "man and van" services that will offer to transport you home with your purchase. Alternatively you can rent a van in Barcelona

Conforama is a Spanish equivalent of Ikea. It is worth checking out if you want to avoid having all the same furniture and lamps from Ikea as your friends!  Visit Conforama's website to see their catalogue online. They are located in the same shopping park, Parc industrial de Montigalà,  in Badalona as Ikea. > Conforama locations
