Online furniture stores are a godsend to us homeowners, as we can browse through a huge catalogue of sofas and dining tables without breaking a sweat. But choosing the right store to shop from is a tougher task than it seems, especially if you’ve already exhausted all the options that FortyTwo and HipVan have to offer.
To help solve the dilemma of where you should start your furniture hunt, here are 13 online furniture stores to check out:
1. Nook & Cranny – Eclectic & industrial designs

Eclectic and industrial designs are all the rage. You can find chic furniture that will fit into those themes at Nook & Cranny. The store is renowned for its sofa collection where there is even a tab on its website dedicated to sofas, whether leather or fabric, recliners or lounge chairs.
All orders above $300 will be entitled to free delivery. And if you’re not happy with what you’ve bought, there’s a 14-day fuss-free return policy.
Should you decide to want to try the furniture out in person, they also have a 2-storey showroom at The Grandstand which is stocked with their online collection.
2. Castlery – In-house designers from Europe & Australia
A furniture store that we’ve seen in plenty of our featured homes is Castlery. The local furniture brand is best known for offering bougie and chic furniture for those on a budget. While most of its furniture falls under the mid-century modern style, there are still plenty of options including rattan, boucle, and tufted pieces for all types of aesthetics.
If you’re deciding between 2 different swatches, you can make use of Castlery’s Free Swatch service where you’ll get up to 3 colours and textures to see and feel before you commit to either one. You can also pay for big-ticket items like beds and sofas with instalment plans through OCBC, UOB, American Express, and GrabPay.

3. Nitori Furniture – Affordable Japanese furniture
For homes that take after the Japanese zen aesthetic, Nitori Furniture has a wide range of pieces that will give your home that minimalistic look. Aside from the usual best-sellers like shoe cabinets, coffee tables, and upholstered benches, Nitori also has plenty of homewares like diatomite mats, mochi-shaped cushions, and all types of hangers for your clothes.
If you’re the kanchiong spider type, you can also buy your furniture online and pick it up at their store in The Heeren, albeit after 1 day.

The Hollywood Regency style might have originated during the 1930s, but it’s still in vogue today. One way to style your home with the glitz and glamour of that era is to go furniture shopping at James Said.
All the pieces available have been curated specifically for their opulence and luxuriousness. Think boucle headboards, brass and marble side tables, and geometric bookshelves.
For the right price, you can also customise armchairs, beds, and folding panels to your exact specifications like fabrics and colours.
5. Kids Haven – Playful furniture for children

Shopping for kids can be tricky, but thankfully there are stores like Kids Haven dedicated to children’s furniture from beds to wardrobes to dollhouse bookshelves. The selection of pieces available on their site has a playful and whimsical feel that will brighten up any nursery or kids’ bedroom.
6. Born in Colour – Scandi, Bohemian, and Mid-century styles
The Born in Colour showroom in Yishun.
For homeowners seeking out Scandinavian furniture that is a bit more elevated than the selection at IKEA, Born in Colour has a curation of pieces that are worthy of your consideration. The homegrown store also has plenty of mid-century modern and rattan furniture that will fit into homes that boast other trending aesthetics.
The online store often has sales that can see prices slashed up to 80%. It also happens that Born in Colour is one of the few stores in Singapore that stocks the Macaron Family home decor series.
7. Originals – Restored furniture from India and Indonesia

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword these days, as savvy shoppers are more consciously snapping up vintage furniture that has been given a new lease of life courtesy of the team at Originals. The store has been at the forefront of restoring furniture ever since it opened its doors at Gillman Barracks 20 years ago.

Originals’ Nomad India collection of chests, mirrors, and coffee tables are sourced from Northern India and painstakingly restored by their team of artisans. If you’re looking for something newer, Originals also has plenty of brand-new furniture including customisable sofas and bed frames meant for Singaporean-sized mattresses.
8. Finn Avenue – Luxury art deco & Victorian pieces

The Great Gatsby movie’s premier back in 2013 sent the world into a tizzy for the art deco aesthetic. 10 years on, the opulent style of the Roaring 20s is still popular among homeowners who crave a more flamboyant and glamorous take on interior design. One place to find pieces that fit right in that era is Finn Avenue.
From sideboards with geometric patterns to boucle accent chairs, the e-store has plenty of art deco furniture for your living and dining room. They also carry a selection of home decor and accessories.

Finn Avenue also runs plenty of bundle sales. For example, you can get 10% off your order if you buy a sofa and a coffee table from them.
9. Lulu Furniture – Affordable standalone wardrobes
The KLASS Tempered Glass wardrobe starts from $709.

Built-in carpentry might not be suitable for everyone, which is where the wardrobes from Lulu Furniture come in handy. The wardrobes come in various sizes and an assortment of styles from opaque swinging doors to glass sliding doors. They also offer free delivery and assembly for most orders – condo and apartment dwellers would have to pay $15 for the service.

You’ll also be able to find other everyday furniture in the catalogue, including bedding, tables, chairs, and bookshelves.
10. Island Living – Sustainable rattan & teak wood furniture

There’s something oh-so-charming about rattan and teak furniture, especially since it’s a style that is so commonplace in Southeast Asian islands like Bali and Singapore. To deck your home in those coastal island vibes, head over to Island Living’s online store where you can shop rattan lounge furniture, wicker baskets, and handcrafted mirrors.

All orders above $80 will get free delivery, which is great for those who are just shopping for loose home decor. If you change your mind at the last minute, you also have a 14-day window to return any unopened and unused items, although there will be a restocking fee imposed.
11. Soul & Tables – Free delivery, installation & lifetime warranty
Assembling furniture comes naturally to some, but for others, a service like free installation and assembly is a godsend. Soul & Tables offers not only that, but they’ll also deliver it to your doorstep for free plus give you a lifetime warranty for all the furniture you buy from them.
Some of the furniture that you can find on their web store include solid wood furnishings, teak and oak wood pieces from Ethnicraft, and bean bags from the brands Roolf and Fatboy.
12. Loft Home Furniture – Affordable designer dupes

Not all of us can swallow the 4- to 5-figure price tags that are commanded by designer furniture. Thankfully, you can still achieve a similar aesthetic courtesy of Loft Home Furniture as their catalogue of furniture has pieces that bear striking similarities with designer darlings.

Take the Herman Miller Cosm for example. While the original goes for at least $2,389, Loft Home Furniture has a similar ergonomic chair that’s just $199. They also have a $79 version of the Philippe Starck Ghost Chair that normally runs for over $700.
13. Wihardja – Experts in teak and suar wood

One of the hardest hardwoods is teak, and it happens that Wihardja is the local expert in teak furniture. However, sometimes the pieces you have your eye on have long delivery times as they’ll only be made once an order has been placed. Which is why Wihardja’s ready-stock tab on their online store is so handy, as these products are all waiting to leave the warehouse.
If you can’t find something that fits your needs, you can also get them to customise something to your exact requirements, even if it’s just adding another drawer to the cupboard you have bookmarked. They can recreate something from your Pinterest moodboard, too.

Furnishing your home is one of the most exciting processes in any homeowner’s journey. But it also can be the most arduous especially since there are so many options available, and the paradox of choice makes it harder to pick out the perfect coffee table and sofa.
These online furniture stores can help make that shopping experience go by smoother, as you can browse through hundreds of chairs and tables in just a few minutes, not hours as one would if they were visiting many showrooms in a day.
