Is Furniture Expensive in Turkey?

When it comes to furniture, Turkey is well-known for offering great value for money. Compared to furniture from other countries, Turkish furniture is significantly cheaper, yet still of good quality. This is due to the fact that furniture production is one of the main industries in Turkey.

As a result, there are many furniture manufacturers competing for business, which keeps prices low. In addition, the use of traditional methods and materials means that furniture can be made very cheaply in Turkey.


However, it should be noted that not all Turkish furniture is of good quality, so it is important to do your research before buying. Go read through our Best Furniture Brands Of Turkey list to be up-to date on the furniture sector of Turkey.
Overall, though, if you are looking for cheap furniture, Turkey is definitely the place to go. Let's dive straight into the data now and see how Turkish furniture compares with other countries.

Turkish Furniture Price Comparison

First, we'll take a look at the data from Eurostat 1table comparing the prices of furniture across Europe

The findings are based on price surveys of over 2 000 consumer goods and services undertaken in 37 European countries that participate in the Eurostat-OECD Purchasing Power Parities (PPP) program.

The 27 EU Member States, three EFTA nations (Iceland, Norway, and Switzerland), the United Kingdom, five candidate countries (Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Turkey), and one potential candidate country are among those taking part (Bosnia and Herzegovina).

100 PLI is the EU average price, so if the PLI of the country is above 100, it means the prices are above the EU average prices as you can see from the tables.

Turkey ranks the lowest in table for furniture by far, the closest one being North Macedonia. You can also visit our artice Turkish Furniture Exports to see how Turkey's export compares to other countries.

Ikea Price Comparisons

IKEA2 is a furniture company that is based in Sweden. However, it has stores in many countries around the world, including Turkey. IKEA furniture is generally very affordable, but there can be significant price differences between different countries.

For example, a dining set that costs 450 dollars in Turkey would cost approximately 800 dollars in the US.

This price difference is due to a number of factors, including the cost of labor and materials, transportation costs, and taxes. However, IKEA furniture is still generally much cheaper than similar furniture from other companies. Down below we compared IKEA furniture prices in different countries.

Many people use e-commerce platforms to purchase furniture. This is due to a number of factors.
  • For starters, it's convenient. You can do your furniture shopping from the convenience of your own home.
  • Second, you have a large range of furniture options.
  • Third, e-commerce sites frequently provide good bargains on furniture. For many shoppers, the goal is to find high-quality pieces at the lowest possible price.

Vivense vs. Wayfair

Another factor that can effects the price in e-commerce sites is their country. With that in mind, Vivense3 and Wayfair4 are two popular e-commerce sites that offer an array of furniture options.

Vivense is a Turkish site that offers both sofa sets and dining room sets, with prices starting at 230 dollars for sofa sets and 100 dollars for dining room sets. In contrast, Wayfair is a US-based site that also offers both sofa sets and dining room sets.

However, prices on Wayfair are significantly higher, with similar sofa sets starting at 700 dollars and similar dining room sets starting at 250 dollars. As such, we can observe the average prices amongst the retail furniture.

This is due to a number of factors, developed infrastructure, established component/raw material supply chains, and skilled workforce. As a result, furniture shoppers who are looking for a bargain can often find great deals on furniture in Turkey.

However, it's important to keep in mind that furniture prices can also vary depending on the type of furniture and the quality of the craftsmanship. As such, furniture importers should always compare prices and inspect furniture carefully before making a purchase. By doing so, they can ensure that they're getting the best possible value for their money.
