Anyone know somewhere I can get really nice office furniture? Nice design (modern, minimalist, etc.), and not the usual made-of-wood boxy stuff you see everywhere. Don't know if this stuff even exists here in Vietnam, but maybe...

Thanks for any help.

Try \"Trung A Trading & Furniture Manufacturting Co., Ltd\", someone recommended them to me once, but didn\'t contact them. Since they also mentioned \"Manufacturing\" I guess you can tailor made or they already have some existing design that you might like.

They are located at No. 4A LE THANH TONG STREET. Near Hanoi Hilton Opera (Opposite Toyota Hoan Kiem Show Room).

You can called them at 933 4655. Maybe get some help from your Vina colleagues.

Good luck.

There seems to be limited information on this question and what was posted is almost 3 years old. Does anyone have any new leads on good office furniture including desks, chairs, file cabinets, and bookcases? What is out there appears to fit form better than function. I appreciate any new leads on good office furniture in Hanoi.

I would suggest that most major suburbs would have office furniture shops as there are many offices based in houses everywhere you go.

Out in My Dinh 2, there is an office furniture shop on the corner of Le Duc Tho, across the road from Tien Loi Supermarket that has a good looking range of office items (and other things) to choose from. Look around your own neighbourhood as well - there might be something tucked under an apartment block or similar.

You could also try Mei Linh Plaza out towards the airport. Also try hunting through the Vincom Tower Complex.

Hi

If you are after high end western style office furniture you may wish to look at

www.hermanmiller.cn/asia/dealers/index1.php?country=Vietnam

look at this shop but chairs run to US$400.

Its down past Vincom - head out of Vincom near Highlands - cross to Boo Skate shop and head down the street it is on the corner off.

I have seen office furniture in this store:

They can also custom make furniture. I have never had anything made from this shop but the manager (owner?) speaks very good English and most of their furniture is produced for offshore customers. Might be worth a look.

So I ended up buying a modern office desk at the Herman Miller/Euro dealership otherwise known as KNH Company Limited on 26 Le Dai Hanh street. As far as I could tell, it had the most "modern" Western type office furniture in town which is no surprise I guess since they import it. It appears they furnish many Western NGOs and major companies/embassies in Hanoi. Price-wise, the Herman Miller stuff is definitely expensive and is about 50% more than what you'd pay in the US due to import tax but I found the Euro brand desks to be quite reasonable and even cheaper than some of the local handmade stuff. If you're looking for modern desks with quality surface tops and sturdy legs, I would check this place out.

As per babachung, I ended up contacting KNH Company Limited to enquire about office chairs. Their showroom has now moved to No. 3 Chua Lang Street, Dong Da. The actual showroom is inside a university campus and very much out of the way so make sure you call or email them to arrange a time to visit.

They had a good range of US, European and Asian office furniture. Mostly high end (including Hernam Miller). I ended up purchasing a Taiwanese chair that is very comfortable and cost $140 (40% off Tet sale).

The guy I dealt with, Tuan, was very professional, spoke great English and was totally patient while I tried out every chair in the showroom.

They delivered two hours later, as promised.

You can see their range of chairs and other furniture here: http://www.knh.com.vn/

Looks like KNH is no longer in business. Has anyone found anywhere else recently?
