Gilbert family on their handmade wood bed, Volcan, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingYes, you can buy furniture in Volcán. Can you buy American-style Ashley-type furniture in Volcán? No, but you can buy the American-style Ashley-type furniture in nearby David, which is approximately 45 minutes away. 
 
There are terrific artisans who work with wood here in Volcán. You can also have beautiful furniture made very cheaply in Volcán. My family and I have done that. We’ve had beautiful king beds made from teak with airflow underneath and 5 pull-out drawers underneath the mattress that cost $600. We’ve also had beautiful solid wood kitchen cabinets made here in Volcán that also, coincidentally, cost $600. Even the interior of the drawers is solid wood and not particle wood like you’d find in the US. We’ve also had buffets and dressers made here in Volcán. You’d be surprised how talented and good the artisans here in Volcán are.

Yes, you can buy furniture in Volcan and Cerro Punta.
 
There are several independent wood making shops with very god quality were you can get a large variety of furniture.  Also, if you don't find what you want, you can ask them to make it for you.
 
Besides these types of stores, in Volcan you can find other stores that have pre-made furniture, too.
 
Hope this help answer your question.
