Mocka’s Porto Three Shelves

Mocka is a New Zealand based, family-run furniture company known for offering modern, high-quality furniture at reasonable prices. The online furniture store boasts an impressive 4.7 out of 5 star rating from nearly 7000 reviews on the customer review site Feefo.

You’ll find a wide variety of furniture offerings for all rooms in your house. They also stock an ample selection of kids furniture, which is a definite plus for those who don’t want to fork out too much on their little one’s bedroom.

One of Mocka’s biggest draw cards is that the company offers free shipping on all furniture. This is certainly worth celebrating, considering that shipping often drives up the price of otherwise reasonably-priced furniture.

Usually, no list of affordable furniture shops would be complete without mentioning Ikea. But as you may well be aware, the Swedish furniture giant doesn’t yet operate in New Zealand.

But that’s soon about to change. The rumours are true: Kiwis will finally be able to shop at Ikea on home soil, with the first physical store, as well as an online store, slated for launch in the coming months.

So what is it about Ikea that makes it so great? The Swedish furniture store is beloved equally for its affordable prices, large variety of furniture options, and unique product names.

Plus, shopping at Ikea is an experience in itself. You can spend a few hours—or even a whole day—weaving in and out of its many aisles. But if you’d like to save yourself the trip, the online store is bound to be nearly just as fun.

Big Save is a New Zealand family-owned and operated furniture business that’s been around since 1973. According to the company, its buyers travel the country and worldwide to source the latest in furniture trends. The result is a considered selection of well-made, contemporary furniture.

While Big Save isn’t as affordable as the previous two options, it’s still relatively reasonably priced for the quality you get (some pieces are even made in New Zealand). Plus, you’ll find plenty of pieces on sale for hundreds of dollars less. We even spotted a dining set that was discounted by over $1200!

It’s also worth noting that all purchases come with a minimum 2-year warranty. The piece of mind this offers alone may be worth paying a bit more. If you’re keen to check out Big Save, you can either shop online or head to its many physical stores throughout the country.
