    Kirti Nagar Market

    Kirti Nagar Market

    Kirti Nagar, Delhi

    Asia’s largest furniture market, Kirti Nagar houses over 500 furniture wholesalers and retailers, interior design boutiques, kitchen and bathroom brands, and traditional furniture makers (most of which are open now). You can even have them copy furniture to suit your budget or a particular theme. Office, restaurant, commercial space, house, bedroom, kitchen – Kirti Nagar will have furniture for all the spaces. Have a look at what we found in this market here. 

    Closed On: Mondays

    Sikandarpur Furniture Market

    Located close to the DLF City Court, this market stocks up on antique-looking wooden furniture, cushioned swinging chairs, cane furniture, mudas and everything you’d need to create a home with eclectic pieces. We even found a rustic looking blue wooden night stand we’d decorate an entire room around. Find more here.

    Open seven days.

    Panchkuian Road

    Panchkuian Road

    Paharganj, Delhi

    On the road that connects Connaught Place to Jhandewalan, or more specifically from RK Ashram Marg metro to Rajiv Chowk, you’ll find a cramped and confusing furniture market. Stay patient—this is one of Delhi’s foremost furniture store streets for good-quality but cheap furniture. We found Rajasthani hand-painted tables, wooden engraved dividers and comfy chairs you’d want to habitate in. Don’t believe us? Check this out.

    Closed On: Sunday (only some shops)

    Jail Road Market

    Jail Road Market

    Hari Nagar, Delhi

    On the two-kilometre stretch starting from Hari Nagar to Tilak Nagar, Jail Road Market is the lesser known furniture hub that’s probably the least confusing market with most of the furniture shops lined one after another on the main road. You’ll find simple furniture here which will definitely fit your budget, plus there are many stores selling curtains, drapes, mattresses, and artifacts too, so you can get a lot sorted for your home in just one trip.

    Closed On: Wednesdays (most shops)

    Sharma Farms

    Sharma Farms

    Chhattarpur, Delhi

    Across and down the road from Tivoli, behind the gate neighbouring Oodles Hotel, you will be greeted by the crew at Sharma Farms. A smidge spooky and cut-off, this place requires a dose of patience when you visit, given the amount of scouring you’ll have to do.

    Inundated with furniture (each and every kind) and ranging across types, you can expect vintage, restored, Indian-inspired, cut-out work, temple inspired pillars, statues, sculptures, wine holders, doors, panels, and figurines here. They’re cheaper than most of their competitors, but this place requires you to bring your bargaining A-game.

    Open seven days (10am – 6pm).

    Amar Colony

    Amar Colony Furniture Market

    Lajpat Nagar - 4, Delhi

    We wish we could give you an address, but these savvy wheeler dealers enjoy the "now you see me, now you don't" game. If you do happen to find them, they’re spread over one particular street, interspersed between basements and the road side, and retail second-hand, over-used, and vintage furniture- everything from tables and chairs, to bookshelves and colonial style furniture.

    They can also assist with a quick paint job, or a fix-me-up.

    Closed On: Tuesdays.

    Market Near Aya Nagar

    Between Arjan Garh and Ghitorni metro station, there are shops selling cane furniture, chiks and different kinds of chairs. A store called Village Article here sells bean bags for as low as INR 500.
