Default Buying sofa / chairs

Ok we're getting all our furniture brand new, bed, bookshelves, table, chairs, etc etc

But was thinking of maybe getting a sofa and a few armchaires second hand, I've looked on dubizzle and most of them are crap really,

anywhere else I can get some from? Or any places you can recommend where I can buy them new at a decent price? (Not IKEA though as they're awful)

Cheers again...
