Furniture and equipment


Have you found yourself an unfurnished room and need to find some furniture, you can find different options here.

Second hand - Reuse

  • On the webpage: GulogGratis.dk you can either find cheap furniture or search for furniture that people want to give away for free (make sure to mark your location).
  • You can also find furniture on different facebook pages, for instance:
    • 1. Storskrald i Aarhus - free furniture that is going to be thrown away, you find the furniture on the streets and they are free to collect. On the facebook page other people inform you about the furniture, and where you can find them (NB. make sure that the furniture is actually 'storskrald' and not people who are moving in/out)
    • 2. Marketplace - furniture in all price ranges.
  • Reuse options.
  • You can also find a little more informatio on this link under arriving and settling in.
