Our 10 Favourite Edmonton Design Shops
Where we love to shop in the YEG.
We’ve already shared a list of our favourite Calgary design stores, but now it’s time to give Edmonton a little bit of love. Here’s a look at our go-to homeware, interior design and boutique shops in the YEG.
Chintz & Company is a mainstay in Edmonton’s interior design landscape. Almost every inch of the store’s 9,000 square-feet is filled to the brim with furniture, textiles, light fixtures, accent pieces, and luxuriously scented candles and room diffusers. If you stop in, make sure to give yourself enough time to peruse all of the offerings.
Since opening in 2012, the sweeping showrooms at Christopher Clayton provide shoppers with a one-stop shop for furnishings, accent pieces and artwork. Regardless of your aesthetic, from modern to ornate, Christopher Clayton has a product for just about any interior.
If you have an eye for ornate design and luxurious interiors, look no further than CosaFina. With a beautifully curated collection of high-end and luxurious furnishings, accent pieces and textiles, shoppers can turn their spaces into their own modern Versailles. Need some help putting it all together? CosaFina also has an in-store interior design studio with a knowledgeable staff to lend a hand.
4. Habitat Etc.
Housed in the historic McKenney Building on the 104 Street Promenade, Habitat Etc. carries an eclectic assortment of design-forward decorative pieces. Explore the shop’s hip selection of hand-woven throw pillows, Pendleton point blankets, handmade ceramics and assorted gift items. And while you’re shopping, make sure to sign up for one of the store’s weaving or terrarium workshops.
In addition to the seemingly endless collection of upscale and unique furniture pieces, decor accents, artwork and the store’s massive wall of beautifully plush area rugs, Henry’s provides Feng Shui and interior design services and in-store consultations.
Owner and senior designer, Colleen Oswald, and her team of licensed design consultants have created a boutique showroom to provide clients with a comprehensive shopping experience. Plush textiles, modern furnishings, upscale art pieces, and a smattering of small gift and decor items coexist within the bright and airy shop space.
With an eclectic mix of vintage furnishings, small-batch housewares, found art and carefully curated decor items, Maven and Grace offers its shoppers a calm and welcoming space to pick and choose the pieces that best express their unique design sensibilities.
McElheran’s has been selling furniture in Edmonton since 1994. Providing customers with incredible customer service and 18,000 square-feet of shopping space filled with everything you need to fill your home, this homespun institution is a must-stop shop.
If you blink, you could almost miss this tiny shop located just off of the hip 124 Street shopping district. Don’t let the small size fool you; this tiny space delivers big on its array of reclaimed antiques imported from Europe, unique hardware, and locally made decor and gift items (as well as a carefully curated collection of baby clothing, decor, books and toys). If you need a little guidance with your home, Plum also offers interior design services.
With two locations in the city, this Montreal-based chain is the perfect place for lovers of a mid-century modern aesthetic to turn their homes into an updated Mad Men-inspired oasis.
