The top 15 patio furniture stores in Toronto

Posted by Sarah Ratchford / June 14, 2013

Patio furniture torontoThe top patio furniture stores in Toronto are many and varied, and they are speckled throughout our fair Hogtown. Long has it been a sign, nay, an emblem, of genteel living to have one's own small plot upon which to sit, gaze and reflect on one's success. Living in Toronto, land of expansive lawns and green space, denizens often scratch their coiffed heads and ponder, "But whence to venture in order to furnish the outdoor portion of my living space?"

Aside from the patio furniture store options detailed here, there is always the ever-joyous Canadian Tire, Ikea, Home Depot, Target and Urban Barn chains to name a few of the omissions. For those in the vicinity of Richmond Hill, I'd also recommend checking out General Products which bills its store as having the largest selection of quality patio furniture in the country.

Here is a list of the best stores for patio and outdoor furniture in Toronto.

CB2 & Crate and Barrel
Relatively new to the Canadian market, these sibling stores feature a wide variety of highly original outdoor furnishings. An umbrella can be had for a mere $529, and tables that are really cement blocks can be had for just $599! There are retro papasan style chairs in bright colours, as well as your traditional outdoor chesterfield. Said items are accessible to you wherever you live in the city: there's a Crate&Barrel (the higher priced and more house-owner oriented offering of the two stores) at Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Square One, and a distribution centre in Mississauga. For downtown dwellers in condos and apartments, there's the more affordable CB2 at Queen and Bathurst.

Andrew Richard Designs
This shop at Adelaide and Parliament has as many designs for outdoor furniture as indoor options. You can walk in and find virtually anything your bougie, cricket playing self desires. You can outfit your lawn to look like a living room! A kitchen! A bedroom! Yes, you can buy an outdoor canopy bed. That sounds awesome, actually. Pricing is on the higher end of the spectrum, but you're investing in quality pieces. There are plenty of teak pieces, and classic Muskoka chairs can be had for $795 to $895. Or you can just get a local to make it for you for like $100.

DOT Furniture
This chain store (there's a DOT Furniture at Dupont and Davenport among other GTA locations) carries a selection of outdoor dining sets, accessories, and crucial outdoor lounge seating. You've got your "resin wicker sectionals," your loungers, and even your "resin teak." Items in that department will run from about $225 to $550. Sale items from DOT are more affordable, as well, depending on what you're looking for to complete your fantastical outdoor oasis.

West Elm
West Elm sells all of the standard outdoor patio accoutrements, as well as a few fancy extras. Outdoor drapes are available for about $60, for example, so one can stealthily fence in one's hot tub. Or what have you. They also sell outdoor rugs for the low, low price of $600. Reasonable! Other cool options include outdoor stemware, lanterns, and various planters and lounge chairs. West Elm can be found in Liberty Village.

Restoration Hardware
Restoration Hardware deals in patio furniture of many different backgrounds, including wicker, teak, fabric, and metal. "Special savings" lounge chairs start at $595. (I found my patio lounge chairs on the side of the road for free...but then I am a dirty hobo who isn't too hung up on appearances). Many of the pieces available at Restoration look pretty much identical to one another, with the exception of some cool hanging egg chairs ($625-$860) and some amazing canopied day beds ($3,840 to $6,395). Restoration Hardware can be found at Yonge and Eg.

InsideOut
If you walk into InsideOut (or simply visit their website from the comfort of your pajamas), you can find absolutely any item you need for life out-of-doors. They've got barbeques and accessories, gazebos (starting at $599), bar stools, porch swings ($449), fire pits...you name it. This is the holy land of patio furniture, and is a bit more affordable than some other spots, too. You can check out InsideOut in Mississauga, Vaughan, and Markham, as well as the location just west of Dufferin and Eglinton Ave W.

Fresh Home & Garden
In my humble opinion, Fresh, just north of the Distillery District, has some of the prettier patio furniture on offer. They sell outdoor bar carts, tables and seating that look like they're straight out of a super-modern fusion sushi restaurant, and the more traditional chairs and loungers one would expect to find. Fresh carries a number of higher-end European imports (la-de da).

Design within Reach
At Design within Reach, you'll find "streamlined, modern designs." There are little cafe tables for nibbling biscotti (what a pointless food) that can be had for less than $200, lounge chairs that look like they're straight out of the '80s but also the future that cost about $1,000, and Adirondack chairs for around $200. This King and Spadina shop is an exciting one, folks, and the price tags are somewhat palatable, depending on what you're looking for.

Hauser
Hauser's patio furniture is like the more basic girls in high school who all want to be Regina George. Read: it looks like indoor furniture, but isn't quite, obviously. That said, like those less-pretty girls, The new Mount Pleasant area shop has a lot to offer. Furniture comes in teak, aluminum, and stainless steel finishes. But outdoor sofas, though pretty, will cost around $1,950. They also sell lovely outdoor tents for around $4,000.

Indoors & Out
Indoors & Out at Yonge and Eglinton sells basic, normal-people, weather resistant wicker patio furnishings. They've got chairs, sectional couches, small tables and stacking chairs. They also carry a series of all-weather cushions for your excitement.

Jardin de Ville
Crazy? Wanna prove it? You can spend no less than $11,000 on an outdoor dining set in this blind robbery Toronto furniture store at King St. E. and Sherbourne. Bitches be getting serious about their patios in here. There are also daybeds for $500, on the other hand, and a totally startling number of possibilities and finishings. They also have air conditioning that feels like an arctic breeze, so that's pretty great.

Kiosk
Kiosk, located at King St. E. and Parliament, carries everything you need to construct a full-on outdoor living room. Aside from the regular seating and dining tables, they sell pergolas, lighting, coffee tables, and "carpets." Sounds just like grandma's house. Be prepared to empty your wallets though.

Casualife
Casuallife deals exclusively in outdoor furnishings, and their stock runs the gamut of patio life necessities. They have locations in Markham and in Mississauga, and they sell heaters, umbrellas, and custom cushions, and their furniture comes in full sets, just like indoor meubles. if you still have yet to spend too much money on places to sit outdoors, hit them up: they've got a 10 to 25 per cent off sale happening until June 23.

Studio B
Outdoor furniture from Studio B, just east of King St. E. and Parliament, promises to provide "a lifetime of durability." Here, you'll find giant sectionals, side tables, coffee tables and all-weather cushions in a variety of scintillating neutrals. Prices are steep so might want to hold off until they have sales on the floor models.

Moss
At Moss, located on the Danforth, you'll find full-on outdoor bar setups. This is the necessary kind of patio furniture, folks. I'll sit on the ground as long as someone can make me a drink. They also, of course, provide the standard giant sectional couches, daybeds, and chairs, as well as a series of umbrellas and fire pits.

I don't understand. Why would you write about "The top 15 patio furniture stores" and just insult and complain about all of them? If they're so awful and overpriced, why don't you leave them off the list?

Confused, you are so on the ball.

I'm still a fan of Ikea, Canadian Tire and Home Depot. And they don't give you attitude if you have to return anything (for whatever reason).

I definitely like Costco's return policy. Saw some of their patios and they are pretty nice. We actually ended up buying ours at www.wickerpark.ca it was a lot more affordable and it looked more modern.

We are looking for a patio heat lamp can anyone recommend any places to get a good deal on?

I bought a patio sectional from patiofurnituredirect in mississauga earlier in the year after looking around at some of the above stores. Awesome staff, way less expensive.

The fabric isn't sunbrella and the clips to join the sectional pieces together can be a bit stubborn, but for around half the price I'm totally pleased with my decision.

I've been on the hunt for stuff for awhile now and can't believe how overpriced most of the outdoor furniture sets are. The fact that some of these sets cost as much as indoor furniture is utterly ridiculous. So far the cheapest quality stuff I have found is at Jysk.

The tone of this article is so weird. Is the author mad at the whole world because she can't afford to buy patio furniture? So strange. May I suggest craigslist and kijiji for some very nice outdoor furniture at excellent prices.

Totally agree! I definitely recommend kijiji and craigslist. We ended up buying patio furniture set for our new home from WickerPark which we found them on Kijiji.

Another good place to look at is ebay too =)

Great article. I shopped at all of these shops with the exception of a few and you breakdown is true to the point. We decided on InsideOut Patio on Castlefield. The quality and selection was overwhelming and the price was reasonable. Jardin de ville was highway robbery and DOT doesnt use outdoor fabrics chosing to use polyester. Purchased a bbq from InsideOut as well and was nice to g. things in one place. Again this synopsis is bang on.

As a pure online retailer, Beliani offers some excellent quality outdoor furniture at great prices. So, strictly speaking, not a store in Toronto, but a Canadian company...

They have resin wicker sets and teak etc.

I believe a patio set has to be both comfortable and nice to look at. When i wanted to get ours redone, I contacted EP Henry at Roxbury. They really did a great job. Now we host summer parties all the time at my house. Thanks for the post.

Now hopefully we get some good weather to enjoy the remaining summer.

They're indeed quite expensive but the designs are great. Nice to have on your outdoor area for relaxation. There are lots of cheaper furnitures online though that can be as elegant and attractive. Better check it out.

Jardin DeVille was a waste of gas overpriced and outright rude. BEWARE --- DOT Patio Furniture tried to sell me what I thought was real teak as they advertise "Copper Teak." After some research its not teak but rather an inexpensive wood they decided to call teak. This is totally false advertising. Fresh had nice teak pieces but was very expensive and everything was 6 - 8 weeks. I found the same looking teak at InsideOut the Castlefield location that looked like the styles at Fresh but for 30% less, not on sale, and I choose cushions and had it delivered in 2 weeks.

I've bought my patio on Furnishly or Frontier Sales, I can't remember, but it was used. The price was around 350$ for a table, bench and a chair with pillows.
I've been shopping second hand furniture for years - it's cheaper and you can find some amazing pieces. I found an article about second hand furniture that sums up pretty much all my favorite spots and I really recommend trying these!

The author is correct. Purchased from InsideOut on Castlefield and the patio furniture is great quality and the price is reasonable. The others are either to expensive and you have to wait 8 weeks or you just get really cheap furniture.

Great list of patio stores. We shopped at a gem of a place not on this list called Southport Outdoor Living at Hwy. 427 and Hwy. 7. Service was amazing (staff were all really nice) and the selection was out of this world. Largest I've seen. Definitely not on the low side for pricing, but if you see the quality of the products you can quickly see the difference. Just throwing it out there because they were not on the list and they definitely should be. Enjoy the summer...on your new furniture! Nixon J.

Regarding Inside Out Toronto; while pricey this place has lots of nice furniture and accessories for your outdoor space. That's about all you can say that is good about Inside Out. Largely run by incompetent staff who treat customers poorly. I paid for delivery and my first order never arrived when they said it would. I am very diligent with my schedule and my personal calendar. I immediately put the delivery time and date in when we purchased the item so there was no mistake on my part. Rather than accepting responsibility and tying to find a solution the to the problem the girl was simply rude and unapologetic telling me I would have to pay the $100 delivery a second time. I had to fight with them to get the furniture delivered and when it did arrived it was 11pm at night. So an entire day was wasted thanks to Inside Out's incompetence. For the second item we purchased we needed a cushion to match our original items. We were told that in order to expedite the process of getting the custom made cushion we should give them a down payment on the order so as to get it in two weeks. Well two weeks came and went, no item. We called to see if it was available, we could tell that something was wrong as if it had never been ordered or expedited as promised. So in the end, our down payment meant nothing and it took 4 weeks rather than the promised 2 to get the cushion. To make matters worse the item we purchased the cushion for arrived damaged. We expected ti would be a simple matter to let them know and have it replaced with a non-defective item. However their system for damaged items is on par with their other lack luster service. In order to contact their service department you must do so via email. After you send your email you will get no response or acknowledgement of the issue. One would expect some automated response at the very least letting you know your request was received. Sadly, a system like this is a tall order for Inside Out. You're simply left to wonder if your problem will be solved. Who operates this way? I followed up with the store and the first thing they did was immediately try to lower my expectations by telling me they were really busy and they would try to get to it. This is fundamental problem with Inside Out. They have little to no customer service skills. Once they have your money they are done with you and off to the next customer. In Toronto there are plenty of nice places to buy furniture and accessories for your outdoor space. Avoid Inside Out at all costs, it's just simply one of the worst stores I have even had the displeasure of dealing with. I will never buy anything from them again.

This is a great blog... Some of the comments are clearly other retail stores bashing others. If you take this much time to complain about stores your full of it or better yet leave a real name and picture of yourself! Starting my shopping for some outdoor furniture and will follow up with a real comment.
