The Best Furniture Stores in Toronto

The best furniture stores in Toronto are stellar showcases for local and international design (and, with a big enough budget, your home can be one, too). Though clean, contemporary style continues to dominate the city's design scene, these stores reinterpret current trends in myriad ways, from industrial-cool to sleek minimalism to statement-making drama.

Here are the best furniture stores in Toronto.



Stylegarage (Ossington)

Stylegarage (Ossington)

Let no one say Toronto doesn't love its own design talent; the city's top pick for furniture is the locally-built, locally-based Stylegarage. After based on West Queen West for years, they've moved to more spacious digs on Ossington, where you can shop for Canadiana-tinged pieces equally suited for the cottage and the condo.

Do you dig all things minimalist, Scandinavian, and made out of pale birch / brass / unbleached linen? Then you've probably spent many hours and dollars at this Junction shop, devoted to simple, elegant, functional designs from Sweden and Denmark (with some equally-austere Japanese lines thrown in).


Elte Market

Elte Market

They've just been open a few short months, but the little brother of the Elte family has already made its mark in Toronto, thanks to owners/brothers Jamie and Andrew Metrick and their furniture-dynasty know-how, teamed with a youthful buying eye. At their massive Castlefield showroom, find rugs, furniture, and knick-knacks, all condo-ready and all at accessible prices.

This showroom, open on King East since the '60s, is packed with arty showstoppers - neon lights, sculptural furniture, a lamp shaped like a life-sized horse - from leading design companies around the world. It's high-concept stuff (with a high price tag to match), and an undeniable must-visit for design lovers.


Avenue Road

Avenue Road

Located in a heritage building in Riverside, this stunning, almost cathedral-like three-floor space features an immaculately-curated selection of contemporary pieces from around the world. A particular draw is their assortment of rugs, which features designs by high-fashion lines like Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Marni.

Kiosk (King East)

Kiosk (King East)

The somewhat ironically-named Kiosk is actually a vast three-floor showroom on King East, populated by high-end, often-iconic design items. If you're looking for classics from Ligne Roset and Poliform or cutting-edge FLOS and Foscarini lighting, this is your stop.



Shelter Furniture

Shelter Furniture

This massive showroom in the Castlefield Design District has a huge range of options for just about everything - chairs, rugs, sofas, and more. Their aesthetic is overwhelmingly modern, with friendly pops of colour that keep things approachable.

Suite 22 Interiors (Richmond)

Suite 22 Interiors (Richmond)

The Markham contemporary furniture depot expanded last year to Richmond St., bringing a very downtown-ready blend of Italian lines scouted for the store by owner Roberto D'Ulisse. Pieces range from silly and statement-making to clean-lined and classic, with some surprises thrown in (like sleek entertainment units with built-in stereos from Spectral).


Commute Home

This shop on Dupont doubles as a studio for the co-owners' interior design projects (you've seen their work around town at Terroni, among other spots). Their sharp, modern furniture and lighting fixtures, often made with reclaimed materials, carry a certain organic warmth that nods to their handmade, all-local origins.
