Brisbane is packed to the brim with furniture and interior design stores; in fact, there are so many that shopping for your home can feel exhausting as you dart in-and-out of stores and across the city in search of what you need.
The truth is, there are a handful of stores that truly stand out from the rest; secret haunts frequented by Brisbane interior stylists and designers, and the furniture meccas, tried and tested by many generations. To help you find the most beautiful furniture and decor you desire, we’ve lovingly curated a list of the very best decor and furniture stores that Brisbane has on offer.
Scandi lovers, listen up. If you’re a fan of beautiful clean-lined timber furniture and brands such as Marimekko, Normann Copenhagen and Architectmade, then you really need to head to The Modern Furniture Store in Fortitude Valley.
This interiors haven was born out of a love for the simplicity and beauty of Scandinavian design. You can get everything from gorgeous designer chairs, through to dining tables, lamps, lighting, throws, rugs, and cushions. The store even stocks a selection of vintage furniture, accessories, and homewares from Europe.
If you haven’t heard of Anna Spiro, she’s one of Australia’s best interior designers, and the brains behind the interior design of the beautiful 5-star hotel Halcyon House on Cabarita Beach. She’s also the owner of Black & Spiro, a Brisbane interior design firm with a popular storefront selling a variety of wares for stylish homes.
Famed for her use of colour, textiles and maximalist aesthetic, Spiro’s creations are a sight to behold, striking the perfect balance between The Hamptons, the Scottish Highlands and Havana, Cuba. It’s hard to imagine, so you really just need to see for yourself, and you can do this at the store in New Farm. The Black & Spiro store features a heavily curated collection of home decor, furniture and textiles, hand-picked by Spiro herself, so you won’t be disappointed.

If you fancy yourself a lover of quality furniture and interior design, then the name Coco Republic may ring a bell. Renowned for its classic and contemporary take on interior design, Coco Republic has built a strong reputation and is now one of Australia’s leading furniture and design brands. The company designs and selects a range of beautifully crafted decor and furniture for both inside and outside the home that is built to stand the test of time.
Brisbanites, rejoice, because you can do your furniture and design shopping with a spot of lunch of caffeine, too! Brisbane’s Coco Republic store also has a chic cafe onsite, with interiors inspired by The Talented Mr. Ripley. So you can buy a beautiful sofa and be transported to the Italian Riviera – we’d say that’s a win, win situation.
Look, the really good things in life don’t always come easy, so if you want some of the best bohemian and Moroccan decor on offer, hop in your car quick-smart and head north towards Peregian Beach or Mooloolaba with your destination set as Bedouin Traders.
Bedouin Traders sells some really dreamy stuff. From deep-seated linen couches, and hand-thrown pottery through to Chinoiserie lamps, Spanish trinket trays, coral focal pieces, and large scale abstract paintings. It even sells summery dresses and hand-woven bags and baskets for summery days by the sea. It has everything for the eclectic homeowner and bohemian at heart.
Like an Aladdin’s cave filled with beautiful trinkets, soft furnishings, and curiosities… That’s how we’d describe the beautiful St Barts. St Barts’ owners, Jasmine Smith, and Leanne Pearce, are well-traveled, describing themselves as ‘peripatetic souls,’ scouring the globe for the finest wares the world has to offer.
Expect rattan chairs, woven light fittings, brass sculptures, hand-carved cabinetry and a variety of soft furnishings made by hand. If you’re into the look of Moroccan Riads, Puglian landscapes, Mallorcan farmhouses and the kind of furniture you’d find at MCM House, then St Barts is a Brisbane interior design destination that will not disappoint.
Who could forget old ye faithful, West Elm? As a much-loved furniture brand in Australia and abroad, plenty of Brisbanites also flock to its Fortitude Valley shores. And it’s not hard to see why we are all such fans of West Elm’s modern and hip aesthetic. West Elm pieces are timeless and have that certain laid-back style that everyone seems to be coveting on Pinterest. If you’re a fan of mid-century finishes and silhouettes, we’re sure you’ll love West Elm too.
You know what’s particularly great about? It’s reasonably priced, the furniture is sturdy and well-designed, and it gives you that expensive mid-century look without the huge price tags associated with designer pieces or coveted antiques.
