If you’ve managed to master how to deal with a potential landlord, sort out water issues, and figure out how you should be charged for electricity, the worst is not behind you. Now there’s furniture to be taken care of. After having asked all of our start-up friends about thrifty ways to do up a space, we present our list of furniture markets in Delhi for those on a budget.

Whether you’re shopping for an office, restaurant, bedroom, or any space, head to one of these furniture markets in Delhi.

We wish we could give you an address, but these savvy wheeler dealers enjoy the ‘now you see me’ 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.

Please bargain, and point out glaring wear & tear to score a discount. They can also assist with a quick paint job, or a fix-me-up.

Kirti Nagar Market

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. There’s nothing you cannot buy, or better still, have them copy, to suit your budget. Office, restaurant, commercial space, house, bedroom, kitchen—whatever the area, they have the furniture for it. We scored a La-Z-Boy for INR 8,000—complete with an automatic recliner and upholstered in black leather.

The market is shut on Mondays. To look at a complete directory of their stores, and their locations, click here.

Driving down MG Road, it is impossible to miss the eclectic mix of furniture and décor stores. Ranging from large, corporate-like franchises and tiny family-run antique and wood carving shops, if you’re looking for furniture, this section of MG Road is for you.

Panchkuian Road

On the road that connects from Connaught Place to Jhandewalan, or more specifically from RK Ashram Marg metro to Rajiv Chowk, you’ll find a cramped, confusing, and frustrating furniture market. Stay patient—this is one of Delhi’s foremost furniture stores {streets} for good-quality-but-cheap furniture.

We advise sticking to basic, functional furniture; this isn’t the place to get creative.

On the two-kilometre stretch starting from Hari Nagar to Tilak Nagar, Jail Market is the lesser known furniture hub that, we hear, has even more variety than Kirti Nagar does. You’ll find simpler furniture here which will definitely fit in your budget, plus there are many stores selling curtains, drapes, mattresses, and artefacts, too, so you can get a lot sorted for your home in one trip.



This place is great for students or bachelors who’re looking for simple wooden or cane furniture that costs hardly anything. You can find a single bed here for as cheap as INR 3,000 and a chair for INR 1,500. These won’t be the fanciest furniture, but they’ll get the job done.

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 can also be super-expensive if you don’t bring your bargaining A-game, and can also create modern antiques or pieces to suit your needs.
