Where and how should a ‘Gringo’ buy
Cuenca is renowned for it’s high quality wooden furniture… I’d buy furniture there, or for the best priced furniture in Quito try the San Roque market in the Centro Historico. Best to go with a local for negotiating!

Depending on where you live. Monte Cristi for north of Manta is a great place to purchase custom made furniture at very reasonable prices. We purchased a coffee table, side table, TV stand, dining room table and six chairs and a corner cabinet for less than $1000.00 – We picked out the laurel wood, the finish and the design and it took less than a week to have it all made and delivered.
We bought a couch, loveseat and chair in a local furniture store and it cost almost twice that much.
