Your home is who you are
It’s where you open the front door and breathe easy because you belong. The pictures are on the wall, travel mementos on the shelf and coffee mugs in the cabinet — this is where you live life, from celebrating milestones to eating take-out on the couch. It’s real and functional and where you feel like yourself.
At Urban Barn, we’re inspired to help you create a home that expresses who you are. Let’s make it yours with beautiful, well-made furniture and accents — we curate accessible home décor for design-conscious people. Come in and discover inspirational pieces to fit your vision of a space you proudly call home.
The first Urban Barn opened over 30 years ago with wooden floors and a big farmhouse door, a rustic space right in the heart of the city. Since then, this contrast has been at our core: we balance a range of designs from urban contemporary to modern rustic for people who live in cities, suburbs and lakeside towns.
We love being part of our communities, from Victoria to Vaudreuil. We invite you to discover beautiful and genuine living, wherever you live. Come in and feel right at home with Urban Barn.
How do we make millions
of Canadians feel right at home?
Give a little more than expected
We started our business by asking people what they wanted. Then we created Urban Barn as a furniture and home décor destination where you get a little more than what you'd expect and can discover what makes a home just right.
Discover and share inspiration
We search the world to discover inspiration for our colours, prints, textures and ideas. But we also like to get inspiration close to home from our customers. This gives us everything we need to move into each season creating collections that excite.
From our home to yours
A visit to one of our stores should evoke a sense of curiosity, discovery and delight. We love to help you feel confident and excited about the products you buy from us, and most importantly we want you to feel right at home in our home, and in yours.

Sébastien Fauteux, Creative Director
"Before I became President at Urban Barn, I was a customer. I loved the products, the experience and the people. Their passion and drive drew me to the company years ago and continue to inspire me today. Together, we’ve grown Urban Barn from an entrepreneurial west coast company to a nation-wide brand."
Linda Letts, President of Urban Barn
