Not only can you buy furniture in Panama but you can actually go to Ashley Furniture and buy Ashley Furniture in Panama. There are people who have all sorts of furniture from around the world but if you just have to have that American style furniture, yes, you can get that here.
I love furniture that is made on the side of the road where they use a big chunk of tree, slice it, stain it, and put a glass on top of it for an outdoor dining table or an indoor dining table. I had bar stools made of solid teak that are handmade. I have a couch that would be made in the US. I don’t know why I bought a US-made couch but it was 60% off so I bought it.
Overall, you could get everything here in Panama that you would want. There is Roche Bobois, which is a French furniture store. You can also buy Italian furniture and many others. Because Panama is so international, the kitchen cabinets in my condo were made in Italy. My cabinets came as part of the package, which was included, so they buy a large volume and get a good price but I’ve done a kitchen where I had a local craftsman make the kitchen cabinets out of teak. It was one fourth the cost of what you would call regular price, which is what it would have cost if you bought Ashley Furniture. Then you could go crazy and buy Italian or French custom-made furniture. In short, the buffet of furniture is in Panama.
