If you’re a new homeowner, starting out from scratch can be overwhelming with so many options out there. And for those who want an upgrade from a futon to a king-sized bed, we have stores here that have just what you need.

We did the work and narrowed down this list down to the best furniture stores in Winnipeg. Read on to know more about where to get good furniture.

How Much Furniture Costs in Winnipeg

Prices vary greatly for each type of furniture. Depending on the material, brand, and warranty, furniture can get quite costly. But good furniture can also last a lifetime, so you still get bang for your buck whenever you get these pieces. 

There are different types of furniture, and pricing varies on a lot of things. Here’s a quick look at how much the usual furniture can cost:

Sofas$600–$2,100
Coffee table$200–$1,100

The Best Furniture Shops in Winnipeg

You’ve had a look at the estimated costs, and now it’s time to check out the furniture shops. We assessed furniture shops in Winnipeg based on the following criteria:

Furniture options. Some stores sell appliances and decor alongside furniture, so we based this on the array of products you can choose from every store.

Product pricing. Stores vary when it comes to prices, especially for custom pieces. We compared stores with one another according to how satisfied their customers were with the cost they charged.
Store ambiance. This includes store and product cleanliness, organisation, and overall atmosphere. We like to shop with comfort and ease, so we included this as a major factor.
Customer satisfaction. We gathered customer feedback, online reviews, and customer surveys as a basis for this criteria.

Dufresne Furniture & Appliances is a family-run business that has been in the industry for more than 30 years. The company has its own professional delivery teams, call centre professionals, and experienced repair technicians. 

We like that they have a wide array of products, covering everything that we could possibly need in our home. Really – check out their website to see what we mean.

Anyway, their website has most of their items listed out, so you can check it out along with the prices. That’s not the only reason to visit it before going to their shop, though.

If you take a look at their website, you see, you’ll find good deals that’ll save you some cash. Not only do they offer free shipping, they give out discounts of up to 40% too. 

Their team of professional sales associates are also friendly, and we appreciate how they gladly walked us throughout their store, answering every query we had about different displays.

We also enjoyed going around the store as it was well-organised, making it easier to find what we were looking for. Their sales associate Ryan was especially helpful without being pushy.

The only downside to them is that warranty claims can take some time to process, but if you’re patient enough, they’ll get to you as soon as possible.

Pros

  • Highly interactive website that makes browsing easier
  • Staff are actually very knowledgeable about their products
  • Free shipping for orders over $250

Cons

  • Warranty claims can take some time

Customer Reviews

Never disappointed in quality, durability, look and price

“Such nice furniture. Big enough to have a very good selection, small enough to be more personal. Have bought a lot of stuff here over the years and it has never disappointed in quality, durability, look and price. And Amri is top notch to deal with!” – Cheri Sparling

Highly recommend

“We had a recent purchase with Dufresne and one of our orders got delivered yesterday. The white glove service which included setting up our furniture was great! They set it up very quickly and were very professional. Highly recommend Dufresne!” – Jen Villa

Established in 1952, Kern Hill is still one of the leading furniture stores in Winnipeg, carrying renowned brands such as Palliser, Decor-Rest, Simmons, Serta, Sealy, and Makowood among others.

It’s noteworthy that Kern Hill guarantees “showroom condition” upon every delivery they make, and we can more or less vouch for that.

We found that most of their furniture lasts one full year without any manufacturing defects, so that’s a plus for us. Otherwise, they’ll have it repaired or replaced.

With their vast display of furniture, we spent hours at their store looking for the pieces that we needed. They have so much on display that it can get easily distracting.

So unless you have a fixed furniture in mind that you plan on buying, you’ll probably end up wandering around like we did. 

Luckily, their staff were very helpful. A lot of them were polite, informative, and not pushy – something we particularly appreciate during furniture shopping.

Other than that, we’re especially fond of the store’s old charm with traditional furniture. Kern Hill has classic designs that exude homey comfort, nothing too flashy or showy.

Once we picked out the pieces we wanted to take home, we chose from the number of payment options that they offer. That’s another plus for us (more payment options means more convenience).

To add to that, we also found their financing plans fairly flexible and transparent. 

Pros

  • Very large inventory
  • A lot of payment options
  • Flexible and transparent financing plans

Cons

  • Too much furniture on display can be distracting

Customer Reviews

Professional and flawless

“Went in to purchase a new sectional and the whole experience from start to end was professional and flawless.

The delivery drivers damaged the upholstery getting it into our house but Kern Hill went above and beyond to get a subcontractor out to repair the damages which was done perfectly.” – Richard Cockrem

Very satisfied with the service

“Tried to buy an upright freezer online. I was looking for a specific model. Other stores showed it as able to order ..but no stock. They also could not guarantee a delivery date. I left several requests at various sites and very few even got back to me. Then I remembered the great service I have had in the past with Kern Hill. I left a request for a quote and they got back to me during store hours. The price they quoted was $20 less than any sale price I had received from their competitors (that had no stock). They delivered the freezer two days later. Very satisfied with the service I received.” – Glen Duval

Faveri’s has been retailing wooden furniture for over 40 years, so it has a pretty strong reputation. It’s a locally owned and well-loved store that many recommended to us for durable wooden furniture.

The first thing we noticed about this store is their timeless, heirloom-quality furniture. Because everything is made of high-quality wood, their pieces look heavily sturdy and strongly made.

Another thing worth noting about Faveri’s is how they use only eco-friendly paints. We asked about their custom colour services to create the look we wanted and got the warm organic look we imagined.

We also found that they use different wood species, and their materials are sourced sustainably. Since we tend to be particular about the materials we place inside our home, this is a major plus. 

Most of the staff present were easygoing and accommodating, making it easier to collaborate on custom pieces. Even the store itself looked utterly elegant with how well-arranged things were. 

Overall, we think it’s worth an investment if you’re looking for handcrafted pieces to don your home. However, if you’re on a budget, this may hurt your pockets a bit.

The only downside to this store is how expensive it can get, so if you’re only starting out in decorating, you might want to reconsider this store for another time.

One thing to remember about this company is that they’re always ready to manufacture highly customised products for the benefit of their customers.

Pros

  • Communicative and strong at collaboration for custom pieces
  • Tends to use highly durable materials (like hardwood)
  • All furniture is manufactured in Canada and the USA
  • Custom finishing service is one-of-a-kind

Cons

  • On the pricey side

Customer Reviews

Quality and finish are exceptional

“Extremely pleased with our purchase of a dining room table and a matching sofa table. The quality and finish are exceptional. Being able to order exactly what you want for type, size and finish is something that is not available in other retail shops. Also, Mark B. was very patient and helpful during our decision making process.” – Cal & Donna Rawluk

Quality pays for itself

“We purchased a jam cupboard for extra storage after our recent move.  We looked at multiple options to fit a unique hallway space. Katrina provided us with excellent service during our initial visit and also regular communication about the status of our furniture piece. The quality of the piece along with the finish exceeded our expectations. We would certainly consider purchasing from them again. We are still enjoying a small kitchen suite we purchased there about 13 years ago. Quality pays for itself.” – Don McKay

Urban Barn is a store with a more innovative feel to it. Their designs and decorative pieces carry a more modern finishing, we think.

We were greeted warmly by their staff when we visited. That’s something we expect, honestly, but it’s always good to get it. 

They were also really helpful – they actually gave us specs quickly on a leather recliner we were interested in and handed us a brochure with all the details and pricing. That sort of quick assistance is what we like to see.

The store is always beautifully furnished, and a lot of their furniture and decor items have an interesting air to it. We felt at ease inside the store, with none of the sales clerks being too pushy.

We also really enjoyed looking through their displays, especially since their pricing isn’t so bad for what they sell.

On that note, price-wise, we think they’re pretty fair at this point. Their items seem durable and could last years too, but nothing too hard-wearing.

One notable thing about Urban Barn is their virtual design studio, and you can do all your shopping online by appointment. Their designers will help you throughout the process too, which is another point of convenience.

But if you want a first-hand experience of being inside the store, they have three locations you can visit, so that should make things even easier. 

Pros

  • Virtual design studio and virtual shopping
  • Hands-on designers who help style your rooms
  • Offers delivery services

Cons

  • No updated flexible payment systems

Customer Reviews

Sales associate was awesome

“We’ve bought lots of furniture at Urban Barn over the years. Their stuff is well made and lasts. Some parts of the year the store can be lower on stock but that goes with any furniture or decor store. We love the throw blankets from here. Great gifts that everybody loves and we must have 5 at home ourselves. We came in the other day for the Presley Floor mirror. It’s our third one. Everybody seems to want them to stay when we’ve sold houses. The sales associate was awesome. She helped without being pushy and gave us a lot more info than the other location had. Definitely made our experience even better. We’ll definitely be back!” – Matt Toews

Products are priced fair

“I found their prices on par with other high end quality stores. If you want Walmart quality this is not your store. Things cost more than low end stores but if you can afford quality products are priced fairly. If you can get a special then it’s a huge score at this store. Staff very nice and easy to get help.” – Andre Valcourt

Lord Selkirk Furniture is another one of Winnipeg’s family-owned businesses, and said by some to be one of the best too. They’re mainly known for their beautiful sectionals, coffee tables, sofa beds, and loveseats.

Our favourite part of visiting their store was the experience with the lovely owners, who were very welcoming. Both of them gladly listened to our queries for custom furniture.

Apart from that, their other staff were also happy to take us around and tend to our furniture needs.

Compared to other stores, Lord Selkirk Furniture is a good place to go to if you’re on a budget, we think. Their pieces won’t hurt your pocket, and you still get furniture and decor that will last years.

Their pieces are homely and cosy – nothing too extravagant or complicated. It’s one of the more humble stores you can find, but there’s an endearing air to it that adds to their appeal.

Although their furniture and the store itself aren’t as modern as their competition, we’ll probably be coming back to Lord Selkirk Furniture again and again for their good prices and durable pieces.

They have an online catalogue, but their website doesn’t seem to be updated often, so better head to the store and see what’s on display for yourself.

Pros

  • Reasonably priced furniture
  • Tends to stock more homey furniture if that’s what you like
  • Very personal service in-store

Cons

  • Outdated website

Customer Reviews

Great experience

“Had a great experience with Lord Selkirk Furniture today! We went in, let them know what we were looking for and our budget. We were quickly shown a few high quality, locally manufactured couches. We found just what we were looking for! Within a few hours the couch was delivered to our door! Signed, sealed and delivered all in one day! We are so happy with the whole process and know we will be enjoying this couch for many years to come! The delivery people were also great and respectful, taking care of our home when moving in the full size couch!” – Geoff Guy

More than pleased with the integrity

“Bought 2 pieces in 1972  and the only thing we have had to replace was the foam seat inserts for the couch. The loveseat/recliner combo is still like new. They were screwed together, not stapled. The seat cushions including the head rests have zippers and removable foams. The workmanship of the new couch that we are buying has the same sturdy dependable construction. More than pleased with the integrity of this company.” – Gall Eichler
