Help needed - Where is the best place to buy furniture in Ayvalik or Izmir

Hello out there....

Just purchased a house in Bademli, nr Dikili.

Going out in the Easter break to furnish it.

Been looking at the IKEA catalogue, but wondered what private or chain store alternative are available.

Hi there and welcome to the forum, if u like Ikea style furniture their is a turkish company called Istikbal, who have stores in most large turkish towns. Like all stores in turkey delivery is free - but remember to barter with the prices.

Happy shopping there is a really good choice available

Its really fun furnishing your own place using local stores and contacts.
We are in Fethiye and we furnished our 2 bed apartment in 5 days including fitted nets and curtains.
I think Ikea type stuff is very bland and pre packaged but the real enjoyment is doing it all yourself and choosing individual items to your own taste with a "Turkey" feel to it
I think if you buy the standard house furniture packages from places like Ikea you may as well be living in a "buy to let" Barratts home on an estate of 300 houses in Middle England.
Put your signature on it as its yours
