Need the perfect patio set? Looking for an outdoor lounge? The best BBQ? Then let these local shops sort you out
Whether you’re after a single patio umbrella or an entire patio set, these are the best shops in Toronto to pick up the outdoor furniture you need to get your backyard, porch and deck into summer-ready shape.
At more than 1,000 square metres, Crush’s uptown Design District showroom is a daunting expanse of outdoor furniture. Labels like CabanaCoast, Tuuci, Stobag and Sunbrella are all well represented, but don’t forget to look up toward the selection of guided and retractable awnings overhead. See our listing here.
If your summer includes everything from sunbathing to storm watching, look no further. JDV’s Summer House collection, a customizable pergola system with a bevy of optional features like lighting, speakers and motorized louvres, features everything you need to stay outside and enjoy the elements in comfort. And to kit it out, JDV stocks luxury brands like Dedon, Gloster and Manutti, too. See our listing here.
There’s no doubt that Southport’s robust selection of outdoor furniture can take any patio from substandard to superb, but we particularly love the wide array of standalone and built-in BBQs, and gas- and wood-fired pizza ovens. See our listing here.
Casualife has been decking out Toronto’s, well, decks, for over 40 years. Don’t worry if you only have a vague idea of what you’re looking for – their in-house designers are on hand to help plan everything out, ensuring your outdoor setup fits your taste, your space and your budget.

Catering to both commercial and residential properties, Ard Outdoors is ideal for those looking to inject a bit of golf club flair into their own backyard. Our newest fave: the recently added, Sunbrella-upholstered Nevis collection, whose modular components, each with a hardy aluminum frame, are versatile, hardy and – most importantly – pleasing to the eye. See our listing here.
Simply put, it’s the city’s largest showroom of outdoor furniture and accessories, with everything from teak dining sets to the charcoal needed to bring a Big Green Egg – also sold here – up to blisteringly high cooing temperatures. If you’re reluctant to part with your older, worse-for-wear patio furniture, then don’t: InsideOut has a repair department on hand to fix it up, whether you bought it there or not. See our listing here.
High-end labels abound at Hauser, including collections from Gloster, Loll’s recycled-plastic-derived furniture and solid teak essentials from Kingsley Bate. Don’t overlook Hauser’s house line, though: with plenty of customizable options, you can what you need and tweak it so it’s just right. See our listing here.
A former foundry may seem like an odd place to buy outdoor furniture, but don’t let that stop you. Located just off of the King East design district, add it to your list of shops to visit when you’re in the neighbourhood and browse patio-centric brands like Cane-line, Emu and Les Jardins, amongst others.
