Qoo10, formerly known as Gmarket, is an online platform for sellers to set up their virtual shop. You’d be able to buy furniture and home appliances under their ‘furniture and decoration’ category. There seems to be a wide range of furniture available, from floor chairs to sofa beds, office chairs to dressing tables. There are over 3,000 different items on sale.
The price for the furniture is relatively affordable, however, you might want to note that different sellers might seller the same product at different prices. Some items you might want to look at include – the Snow White coffee table from BLMG; it is retailing at $79, and the SPEX designer couch chair which is shaped like a hand; it is selling for $99.

FortyTwo, previously known as Bedsg.com, is an online furniture and appliance store. They have a wide range of furniture and their starting prices are quite low; if you’re looking for a sofa bed, you’d be able to purchase one as cheaply as $129 only. One of the sofa beds you might want to check out is the BARKER ASH fabric sofa bed, it is selling for $165 and it looks quite chic.
FortyTwo offers lowest price matching, which means that if you find a merchant selling the same item cheaper, FortyTwo will refund you the difference. The online shop also provides free delivery for your furniture. These value added services would make it more cost effective to shop with them. Read our review.

Budget Furniture was established in 2008; their furniture products are categorised into 5 groups – 1) Living and Dining, 2) Bedroom, 3) Outdoor, 4) Office and 5) Home Decoration; they appear to have a wide variety of products.
You’d be able to get relatively cheap furniture from their shop; a black PVC 3 seater leather sofa retails at $188, a 4 seater dining set costs $199, and a queen size bed frame with mattress is priced at $269. The quality of their furniture is not the most high end, most of their upholstered items are made of PVC, so you might want to consider the fact that if the furniture spoils easily, you might end up spending more money.
You can visit their showroom at 23 Woodlands Terrace, #01-00, to look at their furniture in person. Read our review.

Most of the discounted items in this section are selling for $99, but you’d be able to find lower prices for simpler items, for example, their HARDY 9049 red chair, which is priced at $49 (instead of the usual $119).
