Posted by Natalia Manzocco / March 4, 2015

furniture torontoThe 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

Stylegarage

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. More »

Mjolk

Mjolk

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. More »

Klaus by Nienkamper

Klaus by Nienkamper

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. More »

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. More »

Kiosk

Kiosk

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. More »

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. More »

Suite 22 Interiors

Suite 22 Interiors

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). More »

Commute Home

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. More »
