I am finding it really hard to find decent modern furniture. My wife and I are both Londoners and not into the "Royal Persian" look that is so very popular here. We are especially looking for nice net curtains and drapes as well as modern furniture. We have checked out ID Design on the Corniche which is really nice but also really expensive. Does anyone know of anywhere else?

I'm not so good at Cairo stuff, but I'm sure I've seen a branch of Habitat whilst driving around there in the past... perhaps on Haram Street. I'm sure they'd do nice stuff.

If you are looking for something less expensive...we got lucky at Hyper 1. Yes our Hyper 1 sells furniture and normally they have stuff I would consider tacky and very far from my taste. However they did have a set that seemed like it was just made for our family, as we didn't want to spend any real $$$ on furniture since we have a very young child. We found a 3 piece sectional (chase at one end, one piece that can be a stand alone seat or placed between the chase and the one armed sofa for a longer "L" shaped seating configeration. ) Of course they had some sets in really wild colors but there was one that was a nice conservative oatmeal color with 2 chocolate & pink accent pillows. Being we have a daughter that Loves PINK we figured we would live with it, recover the two accent pillows or toss them in a closet when we bore with them. So far the material has held up very well as well as the cushions. I really didn't expect the cushions to hold up for the price we paid. However I find it lovely to lay on when watching tv and would buy it again.

Habitat has some nice things but their prices are not inexpensive, they did carry Broyhill and Craft Master furniture. Both are good brands that you would find in the states. In Maadi there are several furniture stores that have western style furniture. We stopped in the American furniture store and they had Ashley items but again no bargains there and they will not special order items from the Ashley website.

My wife and I recently moved here and we bought most of our furniture at Razzamatazz in Maadi. Nice and not too expensive.

Sorry, not sure about a shop for second hand items. Perhaps you could try the local newspapers or magazines?
