7 Best Furniture Stores in Ottawa

Did you know Canadians spend an average of $962 per year on household furnishings? If you are looking to buy new furniture for your home, you’re probably looking for a single resource that lists the best furniture stores in Ottawa.

As a manufacturer and retailer of home furnishings for over 90 years, we at La-Z-Boy Ottawa and Kingston often get asked our opinion of other furniture retailers. While La-Z-Boy has some excellent home furnishing options, we also understand that we may not be for everyone, and we believe strongly in answering the questions we are asked.  To that end, we put together a list of seven of the top furniture stores in Ottawa (in alphabetical order).

As you evaluate the various retailers and brands, please remember that buying high-quality, comfortable home furnishings is only half the equation. The local furniture company you will do business with is responsible for the successful delivery and installation of your new items.  Furthermore, they provide supplementary services such as design and post-purchase support that will impact your overall experience.  

We’ll compare Ottawa furniture retailers in these areas:
