The top 10 rug and carpet stores in Toronto
The top rug and carpet stores in Toronto have options aplenty. Whether your budget allows for a custom carpet creation or a simple but savvy solution to your flooring needs, Toronto's rug retailers don't disappoint.
Here are my picks for the top rug and carpet stores in Toronto.
The Carpet Mill
Tucked behind a grocery store at Gerrard and Carlaw since 1993, The Carpet Mill has been around long enough to see more than a few trends come and go. They have experience. You may also want to check out the cork, laminate, hardwood, vinyl and even leather flooring options while at this east side carpet centre.
Totem Rug Design
This west end based rug design company makes some absolutely cool textiles from wool, hemp, bamboo, silk, linen or cotton. Whether it's custom work, collaborations or helping people commemorate the likeness of their beloved pet in the form of a carpet, Totem produces some enviable stuff.
Y and Co
Formed in 2004, Y and Co has managed to freshen up the industry with its unique take on carpeting. Working with textiles in wool, linen, mohair, cotton and silk, it has a wide variety of custom options that consumers and designers love. Check out its stunning lines of fabric as well.
For over 40 years Templeton has been the 'go to' place for many designers and homeowners. With a wide variety of stunning handmade floor coverings, old and new, you will certainly fall in love with something at this showroom.
Pollocks Flooring and Area Rugs
This Roncesvalles retailer has been providing Toronto with flooring solutions for over 40 years. They stock a wide variety of nice quality area rugs and carpeting options, and can also help you with any of your other flooring needs.
Providing a sustainable and affordable modular floor tile system for all of Canada out of its sole Toronto outlet, FLOR is a unique operation. They've come up with a flooring system made up of 20 inch square tiles that can be assembled by you in your home. You can make any shape or size of floor covering for any space that you need. Brilliant.
Barton Floor Covering
Nestled in the heart of Parkdale for over 30 years, Barton has been the place to go if you want to order a custom bound rug, buy something off the rack or rent one of their rolls of - wait for it - real vintage shag carpeting. Barton is a solid option for the budget conscious consumer or stylist.
Weavers Art prides itself as having one of the largest inventories of fine modern and classic rugs in Canada. At its flagship showroom on Castlefield, you can peruse the rugs, while its Bedford Road location serves as a showroom for designers and architects. Weavers can also help you with custom carpets.
Modern Weave fits right in amongst some of Toronto's most coveted and high end dĂŠcor stores. Feeling more like an art gallery than a rug store, it specializes in contemporary rugs. With absolutely stunning items to choose from, the store can also provide you with made-to-order floor coverings.
Known as being one of Canada's finest high-end home furnishing stores ELTE and the newer and trendier ELTE Market are also leading importers of fine quality rugs. There's an impressive array of classic and modern rugs as well as broadloom options at both locations, though the designs are a bit more bold at the Market.
