Sharing where I buy home decor and furniture in Canada to fit my cozy modern style. Talking online and in person stores, splurge pieces and total deals. Plus I’m sharing what I like to buy at each store.
One of the things I wasn’t prepared for when I started sharing home decor on my blog and Instagram is all the link requests. I’ve been DIY blogging for years and really have just started getting these in the last couple years now that I share my home more often. I’m happy to share and have even created a ‘Shop My Home’ page for specific links, but here’s the thing. I love a deal. Clearance is my friend. So if you ask me for a link to my giant map, my coffee table, most of my plant pots or decor? Well, they’re discontinued. I can find close matches for you OR I could share how I shop with you all!
So that’s what I’m doing today. I’m sharing where I shop, but also what I look for at each place. Where do I find the best prices on curtain rods? Plant pots? Rugs? It’s all in this post. Plus some of the places I check in person you might find surprising!
Let’s go by store, shall we? This is where I buy home decor in Canada.
*some of the pieces in my home have been sent to me as part of past partnerships. You can see exactly which things are provided in my shop my home post, but every single store I’m sharing here, I shop at with my own money as well. You can see all my policies right here :)
Article is one of my favourite online stores to look for furniture. They have beautifully modern pieces that are still classic and accessible. The price point is a little bit splurge for my budget, but their pieces are high quality in my experience and I would choose pieces from here I want to keep for a long, long time.
Some pieces I have from here are our leather sectional (discontinued), our black dining chairs, the rug in our primary bedroom, our outdoor patio furniture (both the sectionals, the lounge chairs, terrazzo accent furniture and the dining table/chairs combo. I’m currently eying chairs for the living room from here as well! Shop specific pieces in my home here.
Another online store I love to check out is Wayfair. I’m sure you’ve shopped here before, or at least looked but it’s a really large online retailer. Much like Amazon, they have a large selection of brands available and great filtering options when you search. I tend to search here when I’m looking for something very specific- like my modern desk chairs or a modern twin metal bed frame (Calder’s). I also love to look for lighting on Wayfair. They have such a selection that the price point is totally variable. Some things are incredibly affordable, and others are definitely splurge pieces.
The biggest tip I have with shopping Wayfair is to read the reviews and the photos. That should give you a pretty clear picture of what you’ll get. The other thing to note is that since there are so many brands available on Wayfair, they will sometimes have pieces available that have been discontinued elsewhere. For example, Aubrey’s desk was originally from a furniture store, but is discontinued. It’s still available on Wayfair.
Some pieces I have in our home from Wayfair are all of our kitchen lights, the dining room light, Calder’s bed frame, the farmhouse bed frame, my office chairs, our bedroom chair, bedroom lamp and living room pouff.
Structube is primarily an online Canadian store, but they do have some showrooms across Canada. Both times I’ve purchased from Structube it has been clearance items from the showroom in Vancouver. I’ve been pretty happy with the quality, extremely happy with the price and style. The one thing to note with Structube is that sometimes the scale of pieces seems a bit off. Seeing the items in person confirmed this for me, but if an item you’re looking at seems a bit funky, it could be the scale.
For example, our living room coffee table is very low. Our couch is very low though, so I was having a hard time finding a table low enough to suit. So for me this is perfect. I love this table. But- it would look way too small with our basement couch which is a larger scale, bulkier sectional.
The pieces I have from Structube are our living room coffee table and the metal living room nesting tables.
Years ago, I partnered on a magazine story with Leons furniture. The furniture we have from that collaboration is excellent quality and we’ve really enjoyed their pieces in our home. It’s similar to the Brick (they’re actually under the same umbrella company) or other furniture specific stores, so if you’re looking for staples versus trends, this is a great place to check.
Some pieces in my home from Leons Furniture are our bed and nightstands, the boys’ bunk beds (painted), the living room chairs, Aubrey’s headboard and the basement sectional. At our last home, our furniture was primarily from The Brick.
This one is my very favourite store to browse. While it’s not available to shop online, Homesense is a Canadian staple for home decor. They have incredible deals on furniture, but not many of the same items, so they sell out fast! Much like a Marshalls or Winners, what you get each day will be different, but that makes it a fun stop ;)
Some pieces I have from Homesense in my own home are my console, many of my plant pots, my entry bench, Aubrey’s bedroom lamps and most of our scatter rugs.
I know, do I even need to add this?! It’s such a staple! The price point at IKEA is of course lower than some of the other retailers I’ve mentioned in this post so far, and the pieces are perfectly suited to ‘hack’ or ‘upgrade’. I love to paint IKEA furniture to suit my space and view many of their pieces as staples for busy family homes. I like to look for storage from IKEA, lighting and mirrors. I also buy all of my curtains from IKEA and most of my picture frames from here as well.
And even though it’s not furniture… cabinets. I would install an IKEA kitchen cabinet again in a heartbeat (watch out laundry room!). You can see these in our last kitchen.
Some pieces I have in our home from IKEA include our boys bedroom desk drawers, the mirror in our living room, the playroom storage furniture, the kids stools in the playroom, all of our curtains, all my living room and hallway picture frames, and the large map in our entry.
Bouclair is an online Canadian store I’ve only ordered from once, but they have some unique decor pieces and really affordable prices. They release collections to make it easy to find a style that you’re searching for. I’d say the quality and price are similar to IKEA.
You know I shop at Home Depot All. The. Time. with the renovations we do. I love to walk through their patio decor section in the summer and the seasonal decor in the winter. They have beautiful patio sets that are reasonably priced and their holiday collections have great pieces. They also have some great rugs and we love their lighting.
Some pieces I have from Home Depot are my primary bedroom lights, my office rug, many of my indoor plants and our bathroom vanity. You can see some of their holiday decor in action at our last place here.
Canadian Tire is another place that has excellent patio and seasonal decor. Their patio collections from the Canvas line are so beautiful, it’s the first place I suggest for patio furniture in our city. The Canvas line also has some nice home decor, lighting and storage pieces although the selection is limited. Pricing is just a little above IKEA. The holiday decor here, as I’d mentioned, is awesome too.
In our home, our white dining chairs are from Canadian Tire (discontinued) as is the light from our old dining room, I also have some holiday decorations from there.
Walmart isn’t somewhere I used to check for home decor, but lately, they’ve definitely upped their game! They also have really great patio furniture, especially the HomeTrends collection- it’s so affordable and… on trend! They also have great lamps and staples like sheets.
A few things we currently have from Walmart is our bedroom Linen sheets (from the Ellen Collection), patio banana leaf pillows, and the wire basket in our playroom (previously in our old bathroom).
Jysk is a Canadian store with affordable home decor and furniture. It’s a shop-in-store type of place and although I don’t often buy bigger pieces from Jysk, they do have some very affordable patio decor and miscellaneous home decor. If you have a small budget for a space, it’s a good place to check. Quality seems to be on par with the more affordable IKEA lines. They also have great deals on canvases if you’re planning to DIY some art and this is where I buy my bamboo curtains for my DIY wood shades.
Some pieces in my own home from Jysk are the concrete side table on our patio, the wall planters in our entry, and all of our large canvases I’ve DIYed with.
I seriously love Superstore. I shop for my weekly groceries here so it’s a treat to pop over to the home section and browse. They have great deals on smaller furniture like patio side tables, velvet ottomans, and on decor like candles, baskets, and vases. They also have great mugs which isn’t home decor but worth mentioning ;)
Currently in my home, I have several baskets from Superstore (plant baskets, blanket basket), several vases, our new bathmat, my giant herb planters, the patio wooden lanterns and the black terazzo side tables on the lower patio.
I feel like I can’t hit publish on this post without mentioning Amazon. While I don’t buy furniture from Amazon, I do find it great for smaller, very specific pieces I’m looking for. For example, most of my curtain rods are from Amazon, including my Bay Window curtain rods. It’s great for hardware like towel bars, hooks and even mailboxes. We’ve also ordered some lighting from Amazon.
Some pieces I have in our home from Amazon include the boys bedroom light, the patio sconce, all of our curtain rods, the shelves in Aubrey’s bedroom and our mailbox.
Rejuvenation is such a gorgeous store to browse online. It’s not Canadian, but it’s so darned good, I have to mention it. They do ship to Canada. It’s a higher end store and the price points match that. I haven’t bought furniture from Rejuvenation for that reason, but I have bought decor and hardware from the clearance section. The clearance section is totally gold. It’s SO good.
Other than amazing clearance, the other thing Rejuvenation excels at is their hardware. If you need a lock or something that’s totally functional but not normally pretty… check Rejuvenation. We’ve gotten beautifully designed dead bolts and door stops and door knockers, lots of little things like that for excellent prices.
Currently in my home I have a Rejuvenation door bell (it’s on for under $6!), wool throw pillow cover and some miscellaneous hardware.
CB2 is another online store that has some showrooms across Canada, but if you’re in a smaller centre like me… not anywhere close ;) It’s the modern version of Crate and Barrel. They have a beautiful selection of modern furniture and decor with a mid-higher price point. I love to shop here for decor and fixtures like bathroom towel bars. The only downside is the shipping costs so I try order for pickup when I’m in a bigger center.
In my current home, I have the CB2 wooden dot hooks, in my last home the bathroom fixtures (towel bar, toilet paper holder, hooks) were from CB2 as well.
West Elm is similar to CB2 in price point and the selection of items they offer. From furniture to rugs to lighting to decor, everything is gorgeous. But the gold here is the sale section as well. You’ll often find items get marked down then a couple weeks later will get marked down again. I scored my old living room rug this way!
I don’t currently have anything from West Elm, but you can see my old living room rug here :)
I love shopping at Urban Barn in person. It’s one of the places I will go to wander for ideas and to see trends. They have beautiful modern classic furniture and great accessories. While the furniture is higher end, the accessories are often quite affordable.
Some things we currently have in our home from Urban Barn are the mirror in Aubrey’s bedroom, the grey basket in the basement bathroom and the ceramic decoration on our primary bedroom nightstand. We’ve had rugs from here in the past and loved those too!
I LOVE Etsy. It’s basically a handmade EBay and while almost anyone can sell items on Etsy, some stores are incredible. Over the years, I’ve ordered so many gifts from Etsy and some home decor pieces. A few of my favourite stores are Mels Metal Market, LenOKLinen, and MB Art Studios.
You might find that as some shops grow, they might move off of Etsy onto their own site, so if someone disappears, maybe search for them that way. One example of this is The Blushing Script who has gorgeous weavings and hand lettered pieces.
Some pieces I currently have in my home from Etsy are my linen body pillow cover, a little porcelain tag by the entry door, and metal address sign!
Yes, I know, H&M is a clothing store, but did you know they also have a home section? We order most of our kids clothing from H&M, so I always make sure to check out their home section before checking out. They have reasonable prices and trendy pieces. I love to order small vases from them, tea towels, kids items, and pillow covers.
Almost all of the pillow covers in my living room were ordered for $6.99 each from H&M Home! They come out with new versions each season, so it’s worth checking!
Some pieces I currently have in my home from H&M Home are Aubrey’s bunny hamper, the swan head on her wall, both Aubrey’s bedroom throw and our primary bedroom throw, all our living room pillow covers, the tealight holder in my bedroom sitting area, many tea towels I show in my kitchen, and plenty of my smaller vases.
Another online store that is primarily clothing but has a rad home section as well. Urban Outfitters has a really great selection of fun bathroom items, beautiful bedding, and lighting. They also have some really fun rugs.
I know that some of it looks like a teenagers bedroom, but there are some GEMS in here, promise.
Right now the only things in my house from Urban Outfitters is my living room arm sconce and some sconces in Aubrey’s bedroom which I haven’t blogged about. In our last house, our bedroom sconces, bedroom light, and kids bedroom light were all from there!
Simons in an online store I haven’t personally ordered from but have friends who have scored so many beautiful pieces from. I wanted to include it because it’s one I’ll often browse for inspiration.
If you’re looking for moroccan style poufs… this is the best place to order them from that I know of!
I know, I know… I said places to shop in Canada. But here’s the thing, even with exchange… this ends up being the most affordable place I’ve found to find rugs. I have found some killer deals and the search function is awesome at helping you find exactly what you’re looking for easily. Never buy anything full price at Rugs USA, hold out for at least a 60% off sale, they happen often!
Some rugs in my home from Rugs USA are both of the kids bedroom rugs, both of the outdoor rugs, and our entryway runner.
Speaking of rugs, we have a few Ruggable rugs we’ve been loving the simplicity of cleaning. They’re beautiful and durable for our busy family, but are a bit more of an investment than Rugs USA pieces.
The Ruggable rugs in my home are our living room rug, dining room rug, and hallway runner.
There are so many amazing local retailers across Canada, but this is my personal fave. They now ship across Canada, so I thought I would include it here for you to check out. It’s local to me and is one of my favourite places to buy unique plant pots, vases, candles and more.
Some pieces in my home from Far & Wide include several plant pots (both on my kitchen shelving, then hanging one in my bedroom, and some others), the washed cotton napkins I use for most tablescapes, the geometric throw in the living room and some vases.
