Interior lighting is a very important feature that has a substantial impact on both the aesthetic and functional aspects of every interior design. Lighting sets the mood of a room, highlights important elements such as paintings or antique accessories, and of course illuminates areas for daily activities like cooking or reading. Furthermore lighting comprises approximately 10 per cent of an average family’s energy bills. Choosing the proper lighting is therefore crucial for both the appearance of your home and your wallet.

Fortunately, Toronto has an abundance of exquisite lighting stores that offer a huge diversity of lighting designs and brands. Here is a short list of the best lighting stores in Toronto, where you’ll definitely find the lighting solution you’re looking for.

One of the best lighting stores not on your list is St. James Vintage Lighting located at 486270 30 Side RD Shelburne On. #Hwy 10 and 30th Side Road North of Orangeville. Buyers are pleasantly surprised by the quality inventory but also the purchaser friendly pricing. They offer trading and do repairs on site as well as custom welding and design.
A worthwhile trip for fun and adventure!

Eclectisaurus is a great downtown shop for Vintage & Antique lighting. Their selection includes Art Deco, Eames Era, Mid-Century Modern periods for chandeliers, wall, floor, and table lamps, etc.. The owner is helpful, and her prices are fair.

I recently bought a beautiful pair of end table lamps there.

Hi Dave,

I’m sure you’ll find prices on most of the websites listed in the article, although you’re right that some do not have online shopping options.

When creating this list, we were concentrating on local stores and showrooms in Toronto, so these do not have to run online shops necessarily.

Thanks for stopping by and let us know where did you get the lighting and whether you are satisfied!
