Right off the bat, we were super psyched to check out everything Whimnest offered when we entered their doors. Visiting this store is a treat, even if you don’t have any intention of buying anything, as it looks more like a showroom rather than a regular furniture shop. 

It’s nice to see these items being displayed like this, as it gives us an idea of how they’ll look when we do decide to buy them. 

What sold us the most about Whimnest, however, is their goal of using recycled wood to create their beautiful furniture pieces. It takes being eco-conscious to the next level, as it gives aged oak along with other types of wood a new purpose.

As much as we love their unique furniture pieces, however, we can’t help but feel that their collection is slightly limited compared to other stores in Penang. Furthermore, we think that their pieces are a bit too “artsy,” and can only cater to a specific type of taste.

This being said, I can’t say I was surprised to see the steep prices of these pieces. However, if you’re someone who’s looking for a statement piece to add colour and life to your home, then this is a great place to shop for furniture.

Pros

  • Uniquely-designed pieces
  • Offers architecture and interior design services

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Slightly limited collection

Dad’s Woods is a small family-run business that we love to visit occasionally (online and in person) to see if they have any new collections up for sale. Speaking of the family, the store made us feel right at home, as their staff were accommodating and helpful!

They’re widely known for making these aesthetic furniture that look like they’re made out of a single block of wood. This was perfectly showcased in one of their recent collections, the artisanal stool and end table, which we really liked!

We also appreciate how this store offers customised pieces of furniture, and what’s more impressive is that they do this using a single slab of wood! From the shape to the fixture, height, finishing and more, you’ll be in charge of what you want the product to look like.

Unfortunately, this type of personalisation and craftsmanship is quite costly, which brings us to one of our gripes with this store: its price point. We can still see these pieces being sold like hotcakes though, as the quality that goes into them is top-notch.

Lastly, we felt that their collection is a bit limited. It’s not one of those places where you can enter and browse items for hours on end while visualising what your future home would look like.

Pros

  • Customisable products
  • Masterful craftsmanship
  • Sturdy wood

Cons

  • Limited collection
  • Pricey rates

Customer Reviews

Small, family-owned business with honest and hardworking people

“Outstanding craftsmanship and we couldn’t be more pleased. Dad’s Woods markets itself as a bespoke furniture store — which they are — but I should note that prices are very reasonable for the quality and workmanship. Each piece of furniture is built to last with timelessness in mind.

We purchased a sofa and dining table from them. Initially, there was a small issue with the dining table top during assembly (we picked out a ready-made slab that had been on display for some time) but they recognized the problem right away and allowed us to use the table while they built a new one. Exceptional service all around.

If you want quality furniture, I encourage anyone interested to drop in, have a look and talk to the owners V-Ho and Giselle. They are both very friendly and patient and can be customised based on your needs.

This is a small, family-owned business with honest, hardworking people. V-Ho even came to deliver furniture on his off day, not once but twice! They set the bar very high and really go above and beyond to ensure you receive nothing but the best.” —Zenzi Wong, Google Reviews

You will come back for more!

“A classic example of a small family-run enterprise that has international elan. Very approachable owners and staff who will ensure that your customized needs are catered to in the most professional and warm manner. You will not be disappointed with the choice, and the quality and design are of course world-class. The prices are fair for the outstanding quality and the spectacular design. You will come back for more!” —Aditya Vellore, Google Reviews

From what we’ve seen, DoYoung Malaysia is one of the go-to places for furniture shopping in Penang mainly because of its wide variety of offerings.

This place features just about everything we want from a furniture store, from office desks to stools, beds and decor. Overall, this selection makes shopping (or window shopping) all the more enjoyable! 

If you want, you can also visit their website so you won’t have to step outside your doorstep—and this is actually one of our favourite things about them. Think: Amazon but with a bigger focus on furniture, and you can browse, checkout, and have the furniture delivered to you doorstep!

We also appreciate how they offered assembly services, going the extra mile by helping customers build their newly purchased furniture pieces.

As for the downsides, two things quickly drew our attention based on our recent surveys and interviews with their past clients. Firstly, some people voiced their disappointment with their delivery times, with some complaining that they don’t get their orders on time.

Furthermore, we’ve also seen some reports of some of their staff members being unapproachable. Personally, we haven’t experienced this kind of service on our many trips to the store, but we still felt like including it here for future customers’ information.

Pros

  • Wide variety of products
  • Offers assembly services
  • User-friendly website

Cons

  • Problems with delivery times
  • Reports of unfriendly salespeople

Customer Reviews

Very dedicated staff

“I had a great experience receiving the chairs and table of my preference. The chairs are well assembled with my instructions and they did the job really well. Solid chairs btw. Ken was exceptionally helpful in giving me further instructions on unpacking the furniture, a very dedicated staff. He managed to send the items at the perfect timing for us to ship to another location, and all just went smooth.” —Tuck F Chaang, Google Reviews

Overall 100% recommended

“I bought a round dining table with 4 chairs from Doyoung. The design is sleek and modern, I love the set. Pricing is reasonable despite the great quality and design. Doyoung did not have the set on display so I had to browse the online catalog but the description was accurate. Explanation about the product from Ken (staff) was helpful as well before I proceeded with the order. Ken was also helpful in understanding my needs before suggesting the items to me. Delivery was around 2 weeks, the delivery team was polite and swift with the service. Overall 100% recommended” —Noor S. Msd, Google Reviews

Sweet Home Penang One Shop is another solid option in our books because of their wide variety of collections. They also live up to their name as being a one-stop shop, as they feature furniture pieces for the entire house, whether it be indoors or outdoors.

Plus, their selection is constantly refreshed, so we always come back here to check if there are new pieces we can add to our growing home.

Fortunately, it’s quite easy to browse their items, as they feature a helpful website listing all their furniture pieces. What’s better is that these items are sorted by their type, making it easier for us to find what we’re looking for.

Their staff also exemplified their knowledge and hospitality when we were having trouble choosing between two types of couches. We must say, we couldn’t have decided without them, so kudos to the team!

Our only gripe with Sweet Home Penang One Shop is that since it’s more of a furniture store through and through, there isn’t as much high-quality wooden furniture as we would’ve liked. 

Don’t get us wrong, they do offer great pieces, but they aren’t of the same calibre as other stores on this list.

This aspect does come with an advantage though, as the wooden furniture here costs significantly less as opposed to those “artsy” collections found in other stores.

Pros

  • Wide variety of furniture pieces
  • User-friendly website
  • Reasonable prices
  • Accessible location

Cons

  • Slightly limited selection of high-quality wooden furniture

Customer Reviews

We think that Regent Furnishing Sdn Bhd ticks all the boxes of what a furniture store should be, from their wide selection of furniture to their friendly customer service and more.

Firstly, we think that their collection of furniture, wooden or not, is quite impressive. The ones they offer here range anywhere from bedroom to office, outdoor and living room furniture.

They also offer some wooden furniture for cafes, which we thought was pretty cool! Some of their artistic bar stools immediately caught our eye and come to think of it, we may have to get one soon right after writing this review!

It’s also worth noting that these pieces of furniture feature various designs, colours and materials, which is an instant A+ for us! We appreciate this kind of variety because it lets us choose from different aesthetics, allowing room for creativity in the household.

The only thing we were disappointed with was their occasional unresponsiveness, and we aren’t the only ones who experienced this. Although this may be due to their high frequency of inquiries, we still think it should be mentioned here.

Overall, Regent Furnishing Sdn Bhd is a great furniture store in Penang that features all the bells and whistles. If you can look past the somewhat unresponsive online customer service as well as the occasional pricey rates, you’re in good hands!

Pros

  • Solid selection of furniture
  • Awesome staff members

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Slightly limited collection

Customer Reviews

Incredibly friendly

“My recent furniture shopping experience at Regent Furniture was exceptional! Mr. Sim and Ms. Lee were incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They knew everything about their products and guided me through the extensive product selection, from stylish modern sofas to classic dining sets and comfortable bedsheets. Their expertise helped me find the perfect pieces to match my needs and style.

Regent truly exceeded my expectations in every way. It isn’t just about great service but their furniture is awesome too! The wide range of furniture selections available, coupled with their competitive pricing, was a delightful surprise. The entire experience was truly impressive. I will definitely be returning to Mr. Sim and Ms. Lee for all my future furniture needs.

If you are looking for furniture, Regent is definitely the place to go! It’s truly a hidden gem and you won’t be disappointed!!”—Kai Hui Tan, Google Reviews

Service was good and the price was reasonable

“Has recently bought furniture from this shop. The service was good and the price was reasonable. Attended to by Mr Sim, who is able to make arrangements for delivery despite my last-minute request. Recommended.” —Jes Y., Google Reviews
