7 Best Online Furniture Stores in Canada

Est. Reading Time: 7 Mins

The digital world is continuously growing and evolving, gaining more and more relevance in daily life. In fact, the digital world has transformed many of our daily practices, including shopping!

While it used to be the norm to visit a store-front or mall for most purchases, big or small, the internet has made it possible to conveniently shop from home, online. Even renters and homeowners are buying furniture online!

To combat this, many furniture retailers have had to adapt by developing an eCommerce website that offers an interactive online shopping experience.

At La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston, we sell a wide variety of home furniture, and to keep up with the times, we also have an online website. Although you cannot purchase furniture online, our website offers in-depth information about our products and sales, making it easy for you to book an appointment with a consultant. 

While we are proud of the products and services we offer, both in-store and online, we realized that our online platform isn’t right for every shopper. To that end, we have created a list of the 10 best online furniture stores in Canada, based on the user’s interactive journey.

While online shopping is certainly convenient, it is also important to remember the benefits of shopping for furniture in person. After all, furniture can be a large investment, and it can be difficult to get a true sense of the product's size, feel, comfortability, and quality when shopping solely online. 

That is why we encourage you to do your research online but visit a La-Z-Boy Ottawa or Kingston location to browse our products in person. A design consultant will work with you one-on-one to find the perfect furniture for you. In fact, they will even help you perform a sit test to ensure that furniture is comfortable for your size and preferences.

If you still prefer to shop online, we offer virtual design appointments, so you can experience the in-person shopping experience from your home. 

If you’re interested in our living room furniture, check out some of our best-selling furniture options:

Visit us at any of our local Ottawa & Kingston Locations to see what kind of furniture we have to offer.

You can also book an appointment online to meet with an Interior Design Expert or design consultant.

We look forward to seeing you!
