If you think your home could do with some sprucing up, perhaps a few key furniture pieces could do it. Luckily, we’re reviewing the best furniture stores in Ottawa today!
Of course, one of the first concerns about buying new furniture is the cost. In the next section, we’ll be taking a look at the estimated price of certain furniture items.
How Expensive Are Furniture Stores in Ottawa?
Decorating your home is always a fun venture. Unfortunately, it could also become a costly one.
If you’re the type who doesn’t mind hand-me-down furnishings or flea market finds, you won’t have to worry too much about the costs. But as the table below indicates, brand-new major furniture pieces that you’ll be needing for your rooms could have you digging deep into your pockets.
|FURNITURE PIECE||AVERAGE COST|
|Three-seater sofa||$2,000 – $4,500|
|Six-seater dining table||$1,700 – $5,000|
|Queen-sized bed||$1,500 – $3,000|
|Sectional sofa||$3,500 – $9,000|
Of course, not all furniture stores in Ottawa charge the same (though we did get the above-average rates from some of them we’re reviewing today). A lot will depend on the store’s pricing scheme, but there are other contributing factors to the price tag, too.
Consider the materials, brand, and dimensions of the furniture piece. Certain wood materials, fabrics, hardware, and manufacturing techniques can dictate how much the resulting piece will cost.
Some furniture shops also bundle certain pieces so customers can save more than if they buy them individually. Those are always worth checking out so you can get your home furnished within your budget.

With its over 20 years in the furniture business, Blueprint Home has also been a Better Business Bureau-accredited company for at least half of its existence. In its bio, it calls itself “one of the first stores of its kind in Ottawa”.
Instead of the usual furniture stockroom or warehouse look and feel, Blueprint Home takes pride in having a boutique ambience and service. Its product catalogue features the kind of modern yet elegant furniture pieces that could look right at home anywhere, whether it’s in a lakehouse or a high-rise condo.
However, the price to pay for these unique offerings can be literally seen in its furniture’s price tags. The average price for its couches and sofas is around $3,000 while the shop’s typical queen size bed would cost an estimated $1,800.
But based on general client feedback, the quality of both the curated selections and the furniture items themselves are more than satisfactory. The same can be said about Blueprint Home’s services and the friendliness of its staff, as well.
The following are positive customer feedback for Blueprint Home:

What makes the Upper Room Home Furnishing store stand out (especially during these interesting times) is its virtual tour.

Alteriors is the kind of furniture store that appeals to many homeowners and interior design enthusiasts who love both timeless and contemporary designs. The furniture pieces’ silhouettes are sleek and streamlined and the colour palettes are mostly muted and neutral.
That’s not to say that the furniture designs at Alteriors aren’t exciting — far from it. Geometric forms made of natural materials are softened by gently curving details that almost look sculptural.
It’s an unapologetically high-end boutique furniture shop through and through. Even its virtual showroom and shop, Dealteriors, has the look and feel of a luxury furniture store.
The good news is that there’s a clearance section at the Alteriors site in case you’re working within a budget. The bad news? Some clearance items like a queen-sized storage bed cost around $5,000 — definitely pricier than the average brand-new bed in other shops!
These customers have good things to say about Alteriors:
“THE best place to find the finest contemporary furniture in Ottawa. Received top-notch service from Mark and Jacob.” – Lyne Vincent
“I met with Jake the first time I walked in the store and it was obvious that he has a passion for design. He walked me through the store and gave me advice on different pieces. I ended up buying several coaches (Ligne Roset) and Lighting (Bocci). It has been a year now and I love the pieces and I am grateful for all the useful advice.” – Jerome S.

Pureness and simplicity of form and function drive Artemano’s business model. Its featured collections of furniture pieces are made of wood essences selected for their density, strength, and aesthetic appeal.
While its overall emphasis is on a natural, cottage-style interior, there are still some contemporary and classic pieces to be had at Artemano. For instance, some loveseats and sofas in the online catalogues could look right at home in either a modern condo unit or a countryside getaway.
But since it sells mostly wood-based furniture items, the shop also includes some touch-up and cleaning products for sale. There are proprietary scratch removers for both light and dark wood available, as well as wood polish and cleaning solutions.
Artemano offers customers a one-year warranty should they find manufacturing defects. If there is no damage and the customer simply changed their mind about a purchase, a 20% restocking fee will be charged to cover return shipping costs.
Read the following feedback on Artemano’s products and services:
“Beautiful store and ambiance. Unique exotic wood pieces imported from southeast Asia are not found anywhere else in the city. Definitely check it out, you won’t be disappointed. The prices are what you’d expect from a high-end furniture store that offers unique items.” – Martin Boileau
“Super cool store & ambiance. It was my first time visiting the store and Sally was extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. A big thank you for all her help!” – Lara S.
