Buying furniture in Basel

Moving to a different country is an experience that isn’t comparable to anything else. No wonder that expats that move to Basel even experience new things when shopping for furniture. The language barrier that occurs in many stores makes it hard for expats to find the information that they need to know prior to the purchase of the furniture for their home. In many cases it is the best idea to bring somebody who can translate for you so that you can ask questions and understand the answers. That way you will be able to avoid negative surprises like long waiting times of up to two weeks when you opt for set up and delivery at your home. So, that you can have a great shopping experience with or without an interpreter nonetheless, here are some of the best furniture stores in the Basel area:
