You can furnish your yurt with modern or more traditional furniture. In fact, many Mongolian families who have a yurt as their permanent dwelling in a town or city choose to decorate their home with modern furniture.
You may also choose from traditional wooden furniture if you want to feel like you are in a real Mongolian environment. Standard traditional yurt furniture includes 2 single-size beds, a table and four stools, cupboard and closet.
As our products are entirely hand-made, customers can modify the design of any of our furniture in accordance with their taste and needs. For example, if you are using your yurt mainly as a classroom for workshops and seminars, you may want to furnish your yurt with several Mongolian-style classroom tables.
The standard furniture fills up approximately two thirds of the space along the walls of a yurt with six or eight wall segments. We also offer exclusive furniture and other items for those who want an even stronger Mongolian atmosphere in their yurt. Our King and Queen Chairs, Mongolian saddle and horse-head fiddle are exotic items that would be eye-catching in any home.
Traditional yurt furniture is carved and/or painted on the outer front surfaces. Generally speaking, customers who have chosen a yurt with carved features opt for carved furniture, while those who have selected a yurt painted with traditional patters also choose furniture with decorative painting.
The size of the furniture offered is in proportion to the size of the yurt. Standard furniture fits well in yurts with six or eight wall segments. Yurts with four wall segments that are suitable for events and festivals and other uses may not require traditional furniture.
Yurts with ten wall segments or more are often used for business activities for which traditional furniture is not likely to be appropriate. For those wishing to add a Mongolian touch to the interior of their yurt, whether or not it features traditional furniture, we offer traditional Mongolian paintings, leatherwork, arches and other items.

Placement of furniture
Mongolians always place the yurt so that the door is facing south. Beds are placed against the outer wall on both sides of the average yurt and any chests are placed in the northernmost position, opposite the door. Tables and stools are placed between the chest and the central pillar. A cupboard is often located next to the bed on the east side closer to the door. If you have a saddle, whether it is for use or merely display, you will likely place it next to the bed on the west side. If you have a set of king and queen chairs, they should be placed at the northern point of the yurt and any chests moved towards the beds. These seats should be offered to guests as the place of honor. A wood-burning stove sits near the central pillar and between the pillar and the door in the vast majority of yurts.
