Simplemente Madera furniture in our home in Nicaragua – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingSimplemente Madera has the best wood crafted furniture in Managua.  The picture is of a room they furnished for us.  They are on the higher end of pricing, but all their work is guaranteed.  There are 100s of workshops around Nicaragua doing fine wood crafted furniture.  From my experience of furnishing two homes and a few office spaces with modern style furniture, Simplemente Madera is the best option and worth the added investment.  They deliver on time and always fix any problems if there are any.  I love working with Gustavo.  He speaks English and is available to work in CAD files to give you exactly what you need for the space you are furnishing.  He can do everything by email and Skype.  He will send you shop drawings for approval, if needed.  He has been my point of contact on every project I have done with them, and I have been satisfied each time.  I have been working with them for over 8 years.
 
For children's furniture, I love Casa Madera.  This store uses the same factory to manufacture its furniture. They have the latest designs.

Of course you can buy furniture in Nicaragua, and we have so many places where to buy them that I can't name them all. 
 
Masatepe Nicaragua Furniture – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingAs usual, lets talk about the main stores. In one of the previous answers I talked about one of our department stores SIMAN, which you can find in 3 malls around Managua. This department store sells all kinds of furniture like living room sets, dining tables, bedroom sets, closets, lamps, desks, chairs, and patio sets. 
 
In that same store you can buy every utensil you need for a new home. 
 
Another one like it, but with even more variety, is SINSA home center. This store is kind of a replica of The Home Depot. They sell furniture, any stuff for your home starting from bathroom and bedroom stuff, to lamps, hardware and construction materials. 
 
Then there is La Curacao, which you can also find down in California. This store sells furniture, bedroom sets, kitchen sets, fridge and stove, microwaves, blender, food processors and electronics as well (laptops, computers, LCD, LED, DVDs, sound systems, cell phones, cameras, and more).
 
And of course as mentioned before, we also have a new Walmart coming soon. 
 
But what is the best Nicaragua has to offer you in furniture? Nicaraguan handmade furniture. 
 
You can find them all around Nicaragua, but one of the most famous places in the country to buy them is in the strip of Masatepe, where you will find several stores offering beautiful full wood handmade furniture. Price ranges go from $200 to $500 per set. 
 
You can even order them according to your taste and design and pick it up later, to receive your very own personalized set of furniture. They offer couches, swing chairs, closets, patio sets, and more.

Bed frame furniture made out of solid cherry in Nicaragua – Best Places In The World To Retire – International Living
There are furniture stores in Managua and in other cities in Nicaragua that carry a variety of name brand furniture. However, I have had great success working with local furniture makers.
 
I furnished a home, including 5 custom cherry beds, based on a photo the owner of the home sent.  A local carpenter fabricated all the beds out of solid cherry, and even added a few design elements.  In less than 2 weeks he made a all the beds including a beautiful custom California king bed frame out of solid Cherry.

Most definitely you can buy furniture in Nicaragua.  If you're on a budget, you could possibly furnish a three bedroom house with a washer and dryer for a couple of thousand dollars.
High-end furniture will cost you more obviously.
 
If you look around, you can find some wonderful dark wood furniture made by Nicaraguan furniture makers for reasonable prices.
