WHERE TO FIND GREAT DECOR PIECES IN NAIROBI

Decorating your home is something that never really seems to get done and if you ever find yourself on Google , asking where to find great furniture and decor pieces in Nairobi,worry no more because I thought a list would make it very easy for you .

It is quite interesting to see that sometimes the piece you have been looking for is hiding right under your nose and  its my hope that this  home owners guide on where to get furniture  pieces in Nairobi will be of help.

Something about Nairobi ,like in most towns is that you have to know where to get quality items from trusted providers .You would rather spend more on quality than go cheap and have to keep replacing a furniture item like a couch,dining table or a bed.

You want to be sure that you are spending money on something that will not need fixing every so often.

1.H.Kahenya Interior Design

A great home decor project starts out with a consultation,preferably with an interior decorator and though there are many who claim to be decor experts,I must say you need to follow H. Kahenya Interior Design Firm .

I like their fresh and fun approach to home decor and you will to when you see the beautiful work they have been able to do on the projects they have done.

The Interior Design consulting firm is based at Westlands and  offers both consultation services and finished items ,decor supplies and  has a YouTube channel where they share decor ideas and advice,you may want  really do need to follow them on Facebook and subscribe to their YouTube channel as well.

2.Odds & Ends

If there is a place that has really great furniture pieces,it is Odds & Ends ,they have great furniture and their show rooms are a feast for the eyes.Check out their Jaipur range of furniture,I have a particular liking for the pieces in that particular range and most likely it’s because they have found a way to marry wood and iron give this range a rustic appeal that i find very enthralling.

3.Ngong Road

On your way to Karen using Ngong Road,you will find a lot of furniture shops with beautiful pieces displayed and it’s always a struggle for me   to keep my eyes on the road when they are so many beautiful pieces of furniture to look at.

You will find outdoor/ indoor rattan furniture as well as dining /living room pieces that you might not find anywhere else at very  affordable prices.In choosing some  someone to work with use an individual you have been referred to ,see the work they have done and get commitment in terms of  delivery time.

And just after the furniture shops ,when you think you have seen everything ,you will find beautiful clay outdoor furnaces,hanging baskets of  live flowers  and bright and colorful flower pots  that will look great in your garden  in addition to other landscaping supplies like red soil,manure and landscaping rocks.

4.Mr Price

The Mr Price outlets are in most upmarket malls in Nairobi and if you are looking for unique decor items like center pieces,cushions,throws,candle sticks and a wide range of smaller items that do not include furniture then this is the place for you.

Their range also has cutlery and crockery pieces that you will not find anywhere else,a few weeks ago I was able to find pancake batter dispensers at their outlet at Sarit Center in Westlands.

Their wall hangings and bathroom accessories are especially appealing as this South African brand is not afraid of color and if you are looking to add pops of color to your home,then this is a place you must visit.

5.Game Store

Last but not least is the Game Store at Garden City,they stock a variety of hard-to-find-anywhere-else kitchen utensils and decor pieces you will like .It may be worth the long drive to this side on town as Garden City has adopted pop up shops that have  a very stylish mix of items that you may consider for your home or next decor project.

You must have places you shop for home decor items that have not made it to this list,share them with us in the comments below and we will definitely pay them a visit .

DECOR HAVEN:VICTORIA COURTS FURNISHINGS

The sweet and heady scent of vanilla greeted me when i walked into the Victoria Court Furnishings Store at Garden City which is along  Thika Road.

The large ,well lit and thoughtfully laid out store bids you to get in and take a stroll around as you look at the wide array of couches/sofas,crockery,cutlery,beddings,consoles, and other furniture  that is very well laid out all across the floor.

A  friendly attendant told me i could look around and even sit on the sofas to see how well i liked them.

Quickly i sank myself into a plush,off white cushion with brown cushions and i was in sofa  heaven.

Definitely great quality,i could have stayed there forever.

The store has everything a new homeowner or anyone wanting to revamp their house would like.

Sofas in warm vibrant colors,very well finished to the tiniest details.

Duvets for the Nairobi Winter that has just began.

Artificial  flowers in all sizes to spruce up your table or console .

You can make your purchases either in cash or arrange for a monthly check off system -great idea.

Deliveries are done free of charge for any purchases of at least kshs  50,000 or more within a radius of 20 kilometres from their shop or warehouse that is on Mombasa road..

Before i left i went round again and found an off white  Chaise lounge that was on offer for kshs 29,999.

The rest of the store is a feast for the eyes  and  interior decor enthusiasts like myself, so do go pay the store a visit and let us know what you think.
