New year, new beginning, new furniture. We might be a month into 2024 but it’s never too late for a home makeover, and if you’re seeking a reason to add some fresh pieces or just an excuse for a shopping trip across the causeway, here’s your sign.

Where are the best places to shop for furniture in Johor Bahru?

Here’s a quick overview of where the respective stores on our master list are located at. With most of the locations spread out across JB, it’s good to first start by planning a route that is punctuated with lunch stops. You’ll also want to think about how much you’re intending to buy, and your method of transporting those items back to Singapore. We recommend renting an MPV or mini-van if you don’t own one.

Do furniture shops in JB deliver to Singapore?

Many JB furniture shops can sort that out for you, especially the big names. They’re pretty clued up on how to get your new sofa or table over the border, dealing with all the customs stuff. But if you’re eyeing something from a smaller shop, they might not do deliveries to Singapore directly. 

You can always rope in a third-party delivery service to get your furniture home. Just remember to ask the store first or check out a reliable logistics service to make it all happen smoothly.

For those in Johor Bahru or planning a visit, we’ve compiled a guide to the top 11 furniture shopping destinations to help transform your living space.
