7 Stores That Sell Affordable Small-Space Furniture
Here's a list of shops to hit if you're furnishing your tiny home or condo
Furnishing a tiny home is tricky—the furniture pieces have to be small enough to fit your space, but they have to be well proportioned. Having price tags that fall within a modest budget would help, too!
So we’ve come up with an updated list of stores that sell furnishings and accessories for the urban home (big or small). Plus points include special services and a wide selection of pieces so that you don’t have to jump from one store to another.
Blims Fine Furniture
The family that owns Blims has been in the furniture business since the 1800s(!) so they definitely know their stuff. Blims started out in 1977, and it has since grown to multiple branches around the country.
We love how their stores have sections dedicated to beds (Mattress Gallery—where you can actually lie down to test the beds), office furniture (Office World), and an area dedicated to flexible furniture for small spaces (Condo Collection).
You may have spotted their ads online, and the ads don’t lie: rustic dining sets go for P7,000 and below, beds for P13,000, sofas for as low as P6,000, especially when on sale. This is a great place to head to if you have an extremely small budget, or if you’re furnishing a condo unit that you will rent out or put on AirBnb. Check out the branch along William Street in Mandaluyong.
This tiny but fascinating E. Rodriguez Sr. store specializes in small condo furniture. Andy See and his brothers Alex and Bao come from a family who have been in the furniture business for decades, and now sell well-made, modular pieces for the condo home. We love their stylish sofa beds and industrial-style storage boxes that double as coffee tables. They offer design services as well.
If you want trendy European-style furniture pieces for your condo and you don’t want to think about mixing and matching, then head on over to an SB Furniture branch. The styles range from classical-glam to Scandinavian modern, and a lot of the pieces have hidden storage compartments. They also offer free furniture layout consultancy, so you can fit your new pieces into your home.
This homebuilder’s haven carries everything—from the tiles that you’ll use in your bathroom to the pillows that you’ll put on your sofa. Their furniture selections are also on-trend, and arranged in appealing vignettes around the store. Accent chairs go for P12,000 and up, coffee tables at P5,000 and up, and a lot of their decorative accessories and pillows are below P1,000. Visit their Eulogio Rodriguez Jr. branch in Quezon City for the full experience.
The building material giant has been the top-of-mind home depot to go to for decades, now. But while you think Wilcon only carries construction materials, you’re mistaken, as every branch sells a wide variety of furniture and accessories to complete your home. We especially love their range of affordable, colorful sofas and chairs. Now if you want to spend a little bit more, check out their Natuzzi fine leather furniture displays.
This Cebu-based furniture brand has since expanded to several branches in Metro Manila, and is one of the best sources for affordable but stylish condo furniture. You can get a good-sized sofa for P20,000, tables go for P5,000 and up, and chairs for as low as P2,000. Their mattresses are nicely made, too, and last long. Watch out for their seasonal sales, as they slash up to 50% off on most of the pieces—they get sold out at once!
