Where to Shop for Furniture (Based On Your Interior Style)
It can be quite a task sourcing for décor-specific furniture pieces that will match well with your home’s interior style.
To help you out, we’ve scoured the internet to find furniture stores in Malaysia that carry pieces capable of achieving ‘the look’, be it for Scandinavian, Victorian, Modern, Minimalist or Industrial styles:

Even though Scandinavian décor styles are very popular, finding quality builds or designs that are less Ikea and more custom, is still tricky. For nordic-themed pieces that are sure to make your home look the part, check out these stores:
Carrying a broad range of Scandinavian (and modern) furniture pieces, expect pocket friendly prices at Furniture Outlet's online store. While the shop doesn't have a physical showroom for you to test pieces, free shipping is offered for purchases of RM3,000 and above - to selected zones in Malaysia (KL, N.Sembilan, Melaka and Johor only).
Alternatively, if you’d prefer to get a physical feel for the furniture you purchase, you can check out Smuk Living in Kuala Lumpur! The furniture here does cost a tad bit more, considering they stock authentic Scandinavian labels like HAY, Normann Copenhagen, Muuto and Ferm Living, but quality their construction never disappoints.

This décor style represents historical elegance, class and general good taste! Victorian décor is inspired by the interior styles of homes in the United Kingdom during the reign of Queen Victoria. While real Victorian pieces would be considered antiques, you can fill your home with quality replicas or versions of the style to recreate the look - and we have just the store in mind!
Hauslife carries a big range of furnishings in different styles, but their modern Victorian line is rather extensive. From traditional Chesterfield sofas, intricate bed frames to rustic drawer chests, you can buy Hauslife furniture pieces online or visit their showrooms to test out items that interest you. Only quip? The store mainly stocks larger furniture pieces, not smaller accessories or decor.

Just like Scandinavian furniture, pieces for modern décor can be found in most stores. But stores that house truly stylish, quality designs are few and far between! Here are the stores that have struck our fancy:
With a constantly updated roster of modern furniture pieces, accessories and lighting that are always on-trend (we love the store's range of plush, velvet seatings and glitzy mirrors), homeowners can browse and purchase items from KARE Design's shop online. Otherwise, you can simply head down to their main Kuala Lumpur store to experience and test things out yourself!
Featuring a host of clean-cut, classic shapes, Timeless Design definitely lives up to its name! Expect sleek, boxy sofa sets, avant-garde, sculptural armchairs, and urban (yet minimalistic) remakes, such as the ever-iconic Bubble chairs.

Industrial pieces are typically repurposed, raw and austere. To find authentic furniture that would match such a classically masculine décor without having to DIY, check out these speciality stores for some gritty, industrial-themed finds:
The name says it all - Raw and Rustic Concept Store's product offerings border on the gritty, with a focus on designs inspired by upcycled furniture. Set to find key industrial-home must-haves here, such as bleached wood bar stools, benches and rusted-effect metallic standing lamps. Though the label doesn't have an online store (yet), you can head down to its showroom at Sungei Buloh to see their complete collections!
With a focus on dark-hued, wooden furniture pieces with an edgy, urban slant, European label Ethnicraft provides a sleek spin on the industrial look. Beyond it's comprehensive range of home furnishing goods (ranging from furniture to lighting and decor), Ethnicraft also provides shoppers with a peace of mind, thanks to its one-month return policy and lifetime warranty. Granted, their prices might be on the slightly higher range - but we think that's money well spent.
Interior Designer: Pocket Square
When it comes to a minimalist home, what types of furniture should you go for? Consider pieces in clean colours, with svelte design lines and fitted with little to no adornments - or simply, head down to this store to get your fix:
An online furniture store based in Malaysia, Joy Design carries an impressive collection of furniture with a characteristically ‘pristine’ and minimalist slant. You'll find clean-cut pieces in whites and woods, or in simple solid hues that'll work great in pared down spaces. Best part? Joy Design offers free delivery and assembly for all its furniture. Major plus point!
