Vietnam Furniture Supplier Directories & Trade Shows

There are various local supplier directories in Vietnam. That said, Alibaba.com is still the number one directory for Vietnamese suppliers, even though Alibaba is based in China.

For Rattan furniture alone, there are 286 listed factories based in Vietnam, listed on Alibaba.com.

You can also find Vietnamese furniture and homewares factories listed on Globalsources.com, a Hong Kong based supplier directory.

That being said, there is a better way to find Vietnamese manufacturers.

There are several furniture and home products trade shows in Vietnam, including the Vietnam International Furniture & Home Accessories Expo (VIFA Exp) and VietnamWood.

Both trade shows are held yearly in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), at the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC).

Most nationalities don’t need to apply for visas before arriving in Vietnam, which makes the country very accessible.

Can I buy from furniture wholesalers?

There are many furniture wholesalers, that can sell ‘ready made’ products directly from the warehouse. However, many furniture wholesalers sell products made for the domestic market in Vietnam.

Such products may not comply with fire safety regulations, which prohibits you from importing them.

Further, many wholesalers are not familiar with exporting furniture overseas, which can make the process slow and complicated.

For most importers, it makes more sense to go directly to export oriented factories, rather than local wholesalers or stores.

Are Vietnamese suppliers cheaper than those in other countries?

Vietnam is a low cost country, but so are practically all countries in the region.

However, compared to their competitors in Thailand and China, Vietnamese furniture suppliers tend to be cheaper.

That said, don’t expect to cut 50% compared to what you’d pay in other countries. At best, a Vietnamese supplier can quote a price that’s 10 to 15% lower than those in China or Thailand.

How the process works

Below follows a brief overview of the entire procurement process.

1. Custom design or factory designed furniture?

Do you intend to import custom designed or standard furniture? Buying a custom designed product is far more complicated, as you must provide the following:

  • Design drawing
  • Bill of materials
  • Material specification

You can’t expect the factory do develop your products for you.

In addition, some factories also require a larger order volume when buying custom designed furniture.

For example, some Vietnamese furniture factories only have a 5 pcs MOQ for standard designs, while they require at least 50 pcs for custom designs.

For most importers, it makes more sense to go for a factory designed product.

2. Fly to Vietnam and visit factories

Importing furniture samples will cost you a lot more, compared to flying over to Vietnam and visiting the suppliers.

Furniture manufacturers always have showrooms, where you can take a close look at their different factory designs.

Some of these suppliers even have their showroom in Ho Chi Minh City, while the factory is on the outskirts.

As I already mentioned, most nationalities don’t need a visa to enter.

You can get a visa exemption stamp, valid for 2 weeks, or apply for a longer visa (3, 6 or 12 months) in the airport.

3. Can they ensure product compliance?

Planning to import furniture to the United States or the European Union? Then you may need to ensure compliance with various chemical regulations, and fire safety standards.

My impression is that Vietnamese suppliers, especially those who have western management, tend to have a good understanding of these regulations.

But far from all suppliers do.

Check existing test reports to ensure that the supplier is capable of manufacturing ‘compliant furniture’.

You should request these documents before you visit the supplier. You don’t want to waste your time on suppliers that can’t make compliant goods.

4. Negotiate order terms and prices

You should request quotations and negotiate prices while you are in the factory.

Vietnamese suppliers are used to price negotiations, and are not offended if you try to haggle.

As long as you are polite, and can present a strong case for a price reduction, you can cut down as much as 8 to 10%.

However, don’t try to negotiate too hard, or the supplier may give in, but use cheap and substandard materials instead.

5. Place a test order

You can select factory designed furniture directly from their showrooms, and prepare a sample order of 5 to 10 units.

Even if you buy a factory designed product, you must still confirm the following:

  • Design drawings
  • Material (i.e., wood types)
  • Bill of materials
  • Paints and coatings
  • Product regulations (i.e., REACH)

You need a complete spec sheet to avoid misunderstandings.

Order terms should also be negotiated and confirmed on the spot:

  • Payment terms (30% Deposit, 70% Balance is standard)
  • Shipping terms (i.e, FCA Ho Chi Minh City)
  • Quality check terms
  • Export packaging
  • Bank account details
  • Production time
  • Late delivery clause

All terms shall be clearly specified in a sales contract, that is to be signed and stamped by the supplier.

Just like in China, Vietnamese companies use red company seals to sign contracts.

6. Quality Inspections

The production time at most factories is around 40 to 50 days. You can of course decide to stay around in the country, and inspect the products yourself.

However, most importers work with local quality inspection companies, that go to the factory to check the furniture before shipment.

They can check the following:

  • Dimensions
  • Design (take photos)
  • Fire safety tests
  • Scratch tests
  • Visual inspection (scratches, dust and damages)
  • Export packaging

There are many inspection companies present in Vietnam, especially in and around Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Expect to pay around US$400 for a 1 day inspection, including transportation costs.
