Name of establishment
A one-stop shop for a wide range of indoor and outdoor furniture, with a feel somewhere between a showroom and a factory outlet - large enough to offer plenty of choices, but not so cavernous or impersonal that you risk getting lost, or overwhelmed by the size.
Help is readily at hand if you need it, or you can just browse. It’s the sort of place you’ll want to spend some considerable time in - and there’s even a bar so you can have a drink whilst you are discussing your options.
What to buy?
Chairs, sofas, tables, beds & bedding, lounge furniture, lamps, ornaments, candles, shades & awnings, outdoor furniture, etc.
Despite the size of the shop, the quality is maintained across the range of items, with leading brand names such as Gloster, Borek, Dedon, Cane-line, Garden Impressions, SaVeri and Nesling.

Curiosa is also the official Portugal distributor for the Big Green Egg - the ultimate cooking experience.
The shop is run by Harm and Wanda Tor, familiar faces in the Algarve for many years.
Whilst primarily aimed at the domestic property market, there are also plenty of products suitable for small hotels, guest houses and restaurants.
