I have moved to Vevey in Switzerland 1,5 years ago and one of the first thing we needed to get organized was settling into our new home. Although we had lots of furniture from our previous home in the UK we still needed some extra pieces. Back then I struggled to orient myself in finding shops I could go to. And for this reason I have created this list. It summaries shops which anyone living in Vevey, Montreux, Lausanne area can visit. I have focused on more affordable furniture & home accessories shops (with two exception on the list below) as we did not want to spent fortune on items we will most likely leave behind once we decide to move out of Switzerland.
I hope you find this list useful. If you have any other furniture and home accessories shops suggestions, please leave a comment below!
Beautifully styled shop which will give you lot of inspiration even if you do not buy anything there. The furniture is really good quality and they are right on trend. Check out the shop here.
Inexpensive shop with trendy items you will not feel too precious about. There is branch just outside of Lausanne and then one Villeneuve. If you would like to search for more option click here. I have only ever been to Villeneuve branch. They do not display as much furniture, there is more accessories and kitchenware there, but you can find their full range on their website.
