Hi, I am looking for affordable elegant sofa, appreciate if you could share the info if you know where to get one. Budget less than RM10K.
I have seen some at Lazzoni, nice but pricey.

Thanks.

The keywords here are 'elegant' but 'affordable' 'below 10K' :)

Eg like this? :)

All people have their own definition of "affordable" or "cheap".
For example, my "affordable" sofa is a RM399 model from IKEA. Outside friendly furniture shops rarely or cannot offer the same quality at that price.

Well, it looks elegant. Is it available here?

I am looking for something that can bring out modern classic feel but not too classic. Sometimes there are good things out there and at good price. Some of you might know.

Try Cellini. I think they still have a showroom at the top floor of subang parade, next to Yamaha music.

I like their modern minimalist style. My sofa and dining table are Cellini. I think is around rm15k for both sofa and dining table..

I got it from the row opp.Western Digital,having survey around it is cheaper than those in Seri petaling / Sg Besi Highway where they sold the same design at RM2200.IKEA RM399 exclude installation and transport.I agree with Lee that IKEA has a lot of modern design and immediate stock whereas local shops don't carry stock.

There are alot of furniture manufacturers in Sungai Buloh New Village. They do entertain local customers although they concentrate their business for the export market. Prices in local furniture showrooms are grossly overpriced.

The thing I do NOT like about local made furniture however attractive or appealing it maybe, I observe after very close scrutiny, mostly used recycled or rubbish wood in its architecture. Afterall its like "who's to look underneath" and "it still good to use". I'm not saying all are like this, you get what you pay, but that isn't always it..it can be high price, but still poor quality if compared to the real deal. IKEA's marketing philosophy is they make en mass and can sell them cheap. Local furniture manufacturers cannot and never can compete like IKEA. NONE can! I bought local made Merbau period style wood furniture decades ago and they're an exclusive local furniture industry. I bought them within affordability at that point of time. Now that merbau wood is scarce or prices have rocketted through the roof...what I bought is probably worth 3-4X now. Glad I own these, and they're sublime example local furniture craftmanship.
Just like Speedmart99 chain..they buy bulk and retail cheaper than even the biggest hypermarket here. But then, groceries isn't the subject here..sorry!..but same business strategy.
Actually Sungei Bulow New Village got a lot of hidden cottage industries, one of them are furniture upholstery and such...don't ask me where..I can't recall where.

Thanks kuma, I checked that out earlier. Found out they sell at rm 4400++ during sales.
I think PGA was in Subang Jaya some 20years ago. At that I had my first house and was looking for furniture. I find the price 'untouchable' then. Now RM4400++ can consider if really like it, either their product gone cheaper or our buying power increase. :)

Since you like rattan, maybe you also like wood.

Not sure whether you have heard about Coreo Hida-Takayama.
https://www.coreo-hidatakayama.com/furniture

They have a factory in Vietnam, the wood came from Hokuriku region, Japan and some are from Vietnam. There is a showroom at the Curve, mutiara Damansara.

I like their contemporary minimalist design. If I have not bought furniture of similar design from Cellini, I will buy from Coreo.


p/s: I am planning a trip to this Hokuriku(北陸) region in Honshu during winter to see the mountain, forest and snow... :p
