5 Places to Buy Modern Furniture in Canada
Somehow it seems that American media in particular has established itself as the dominant force in Western popular culture. The American influence can leave Canada inhabitants wondering where they fit, as the two countries are similar enough in language, technological advancement, and everyday lifestyles while operating on different currencies. Especially if you’re from Canada but visiting in America, search options on your computer might automatically refer you to American stores and retail locations. Many retailers will ship from America to Canada, but plenty of Canada residents want to be able to visit a store in person first. Here are five places both in person and online you can get your modern furniture fix in Canada!
Having originated in Sweden, it should be no surprise that Ikea has expanded its horizons across the borders of continents and countries. Luckily, you don’t have to live in America to have access to the modern furniture giant. Ikea has been sweeping across Europe and North America, and most recently has been opening more locations in Canada. Ikea is known as being the leading furniture retailer in the modern or contemporary design. Swedish modern furniture has been trending for the most part of the recent few decades, and Ikea is as Swedish and modern as they come. Most of the other modern furniture retailers have a hard time distancing themselves from Ikea’s reputation of leading the movement towards modern furniture. As of 2017, Ikea has locations in Montreal, Quebec City, Ottowa, Boucherville, Burlington, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Coquitlam, Richmond, Etobicoke, Vaughan, and North York.

Wayfair is also the kind of place you might stumble across something completely random that doesn’t fit a certain theme necessarily, but you might just realize you absolutely need it in your home. Wayfair has an extensive selection of items not just including full furniture sets but also decor ranging from kitchen placeware, bedding, rugs, and even outdoor furniture.
