Finding nice furniture in KL may feel hopeless – most branded furniture comes with a hefty price tag and at first glance our Swedish friends with the famous meatballs seem to be your only hope. But fear not, there are other good furniture shops and KL is full of beautiful Asian furniture – whether it is teak, antiques or “antiques” you are after.

Second hand furniture in KL changes hands mostly through various Facebook forums, but in this post there are a few tips to go treasure hunting. If it is vintage furniture you are after, read this post on our hunt for a perfect vintage book cabinet.

Unfortunately prices are not as cheap as you would expect, so shop around for those special pieces. These are some of our favourite furniture shops in KL outside the malls and the usual international brands:

Ambiance – Antiques in KL

With shops in MK1, Bangsar Shopping Centre and Ampang, Ambiance is one of the best places to look for Asian antiques, as well as high quality reproduced Chinese furniture. In addition they stock a beautiful array of jewellery, decorative items, and smaller pieces of furniture – that can even fit in a suitcase!

Treasure Gallery antiques warehouse

This massive furniture warehouse used to be called Danasti, but is now located off Jalan Templer in PJ. You may get a bit dusty trawling through the aisles but you are bound to find something  you like. It’s a bit tricky to find but this is the address:
Lot 2E, Jalan 215, (off Jalan Templer)
Section 51A, 46050 Petaling Jaya

Lasting Impressions
Another shop with beautiful old furniture. They have small shops in Bangsar Village II and Great Eastern Mall, but I recommend a visit to their large showroom in Sunway Damansara, just a stone’s throw from the Curve.
No. 2, Jalan PJU 3/47
Sunway Damansara Technology Park,
47810 Petaling Jaya

Scent of the Orient
A  small antiques shop in Damansara Perdana.
39-1 Jalan PJU 8/5A, Bandar Damansara Perdana,
47820 Petaling Jaya. Tel: 03 7729 3628

Nostagic furniture at Recro and Kedai Bikin
The good old Second Charm in TTDI has reinvented itself as Recro Furniture, specialising in original and reproduced mid-century furniture, it can be found at 53 Lorong Rahim Kajai 13. Kedai Bikin is an up-and-coming design studio that uses nostalgic Malaysian form to create contemporary pieces.

Urban Culture at Fella Design
Urban Culture is a brand of Fella Design. Check the website for showroom locations, but at lest the one in PJ had a floor dedicated to Urban Culture last time I checked.

SSF
Playing in the same league with the famous blue-and-yellow superstore, SSF sometimes has good discounts and a variety of furniture, household stuff and decorative items with varying quality. There are number of outlets, the latest (and smallest) one in Hartamas Shopping Centre.

“Inspired” furniture online
Shops selling trendy furniture seem to be popping out everywhere now. Timeless Design has a large selection, and  Joy Design now has an outlet in Bangsar. More Design has a similar collection and an online furniture shop.

Teak furniture in KL

If you are after some classic teak furniture, start from Home Treasures, Teakia, Ethnicraft, AuthenTeak, Taekita and Purser’s Choise in Bangsar Village.

Bits and bobs
We’ve managed to satisfy the odd hardware needs, like lockable window handles at Houz Depot.
