My name is Pavel Shelyagin, I am a co-owner of the Fields designer furniture store and the author of the blog of the same name. We have been working in the furniture market since 2012, and during this time we have accumulated a huge knowledge base regarding what constitutes prices and at what stage you can save.

Today I will tell you how to buy furniture that looks "expensive" without overpaying either the manufacturer or the seller.

The owner of a furniture store told how to buy designer furniture as cheaply as possible

1. Discounts and promotions are your best friends

Before making any purchase - always go to the section with discounts and shares and see what offers are relevant at the moment. It often happens that very high-quality goods get there, which for some reason are stale and can be sold at a big discount.

Do not forget to ask the seller why such a big discount, so as not to run into a defective product. Unfortunately, this happens.

2. Always pay attention to new items

Technologies improve over time, new companies and products appear on the market that compete with each other in price and quality. Often, new brands that enter the market offer prices that are several times lower than their closest competitors.

For example, recently appeared in Russia Polish brand Halmarthat sells its products at very low prices relative to its competitors. Note, desk B37 costs only 5,756 rubles. Scroll through the gallery to find even better deals.

Writing table HALMAR B37 - 5 756 rubles.

3. Ask directly if there is a discount for the product you are interested in and if it will appear in the near future

Sometimes it happens that the store has not yet updated the section with discounts, although they are about to start working on some products. You buy at a regular price, although literally in a day the price can drop by 10-15%.

Ask the manager in advance if a discount is planned for the position you are interested in this or next month. There is nothing to be ashamed of, believe me, so many do.

4. Make a pickup if shipping is too expensive

Logistics is becoming more expensive. Delivery of two chairs 30 km from the Moscow Ring Road may cost you more than the chairs themselves. If you have a personal car, arrange pickup and pick up the goods yourself. Free or almost free. In some stores, self-pickup may be paid, however, in any case, it will be cheaper than delivery.

5. Never buy on credit, but ask if there is an installment plan

Payment by installments is a loan without interest. It works like this: you pay for the purchase with bank money, and then gradually return it within a specified period. Do not pay interest, because the store pays for you.
