Looking for a little home décor upgrade?  We’ve put together a list of the best furniture stores in the city.  Happy shopping!

Attica is a home décor dream, offering contemporary, sophisticated pieces from both local and international designers.

It’s a favourite among local home decorators too: “I love Attica because it offers great transitional pieces that can work in modern, traditional, and transitional spaces,” says Charlotte Skiba of Charlotte Interiors. “They have great pieces for every budget!”

Amazing Space Interiors
This chic furniture shop is an extension of the owners’ interior decorating business (hello expertly curated pieces!) and offers items in a variety of styles and prices for both home and commercial spaces.

5659 Almon Street

Inspired by the quality and style of Italian and French décor, Bellissimo originally started out as an antique shop and has since expanded to include custom furnishings and designer pieces.

Quality is everything here, so you know you’ll be leaving with nothing but the best.

2743 Agricola Street

Everything in Thornbloom is beautiful.  Everything. A visit to the store is more of an experience than a shopping trip, and it completely lives up to its tagline, “The Inspired Home.”

Browse their small array of high-end furniture and their wide selection of home accessories. For a more laid-back vibe, visit their cottage-inspired store, Hammock, in Bedford.

A cool, minimal style dominates in the Kew showroom and, as the owners put it, the aim of each piece is “to be accessible in price and functionality.” Head to Kew for a wide range of pieces to outfit every room in your house.

3067 Gottingen Street

I can’t wait for the Halifax, Saint John & London maps to come in to add that extra touch to the new place 👌🏻

The opening of IKEA in Dartmouth Crossing has basically been the talk of the town (okay, maybe it’s more like the talk of Atlantic Canada) for the past year.

The brand new location in Dartmouth Crossing is IKEA Canada’s only location east of Quebec! PLUS us lucky Maritimers get the MOST sustainable IKEA Canada location TO DATE.

We can’t tell if we’re more excited for the furniture, the savings, or the Swedish meatballs! Either way, IKEA Halifax has already become one of the most popular places in the city to outfit any home.

645 Cutler Avenue, Dartmouth
