Hi Mary

Welcome to BE - you have made the right start in coming here.
We have a forum dedicated to the Middle east, where you can chat with other expats living and working in the region, so they will be able to help with all sorts of advice and information - and believe me they will definitely know the best places for furniture.
You will find this forum by clicking on the 'forum index' tab on the top left corner of this page. Scroll down the list of countries, double click on Middle East and you're in. Just pop a post on there in the same way you did here, and before long you will have someone answer.

All the very best with your move

Believe me Mary - when you pop over to the Middle East forum (click on Sue's ink in blue above which will take you into that forum) - the other expats living in Al Ain will have no problem telling you where the best places are to buy furniture. Just pop in and post a request for info and you will soon have a whole shopping experience ahead of you. Don't worry they will be only too happy to help you out there.
Middle East forum members also do arrange meet ups, which is a great way to make some new pals.

Good stuff Mary - you got on the ME forum. I am sure someone will be along soon to advise you.

If you have any questions - just ask on that forum - someone will know the answer.

All the best with your move and furniture hunting
