I’ve spent a lot of time in my local HomeGoods stores lately looking for accessories for several clients. HomeGoods is such a great source for shelf fillers, tabletop decor and general accent decor. HomeGoods is usually picked over when I go shopping but on a my most recent trip I hit the timing just right. The shelves and aisles were over-flowing and I spotted so many great items.
HomeGoods Happy Finds
Let’s start with the furniture….
I loved this garden stool/side table. At first glance it looks like its made of concrete but it’s actually a resin materials so it’s not too heavy. If you’re into neutral decor, this would look great between a pair or chairs or next to a sofa.
I’ve seen the cube ottomans at several stores and thought they would look cute in a play room or nursery.
HomeGoods has some super cute chairs but they aren’t always comfortable. This animal print chair would be a great accent chair in a bedroom or kitchen desk.
The acrylic trend is alive a well at HomeGoods and this tiered side table was fun. The only down side about buying acrylic from HomeGoods is finding a piece that isn’t all scratched up.
I really liked this tufted bench. It was actually really comfortable and would be perfect at the foot of a bed.
tip: don’t overlook upholstered furniture pieces at HomeGoods. Their prices are so go you could have a piece re-upholstered and still spend less than buy a higher end piece.
This brass and marble-look side table was really cute. The top is made of a composite material that looks like a piece of marble. This table would be perfect between two club chairs.
This dining table caught my eye mostly because of the legs. This mid-century style would look great in a loft and because it’s so big, it could even be used as conference table in an office.
tip: if you see surface scratches or dings in a piece you like, ask for a discount.
This chest of drawers had a really great texture to it and I loved the clean lines of the design.
tip: if you’re considering a large furniture piece from HomeGoods, make sure to look it over. I often see scratches and missing pieces (note the missing drawer pull below).
Now let’s check out the accessories and other decor I spotted…
You can find spheres like these at several big box stores but they are usually in a gold finish. I love these in black with a touch of gold on the end of each prong. You can use these a tabletop decor or hang them on the wall.
The faux boxwood topiary at HomeGoods look pretty realistic and the ceramic containers make them look more expensive than they are.
This acrylic and gold-rimmed tray almost came home with me (tray hoarder)! If I remember correctly, it was less than $20 and it came in several colors including the champagne below.
This copper mailbox was really chic and a great size.
This metal stool is perfect to tuck away in a closet or kitchen to reach those high shelves.
These glass lanterns were really pretty and would look great on a covered porch, sunroom or indoors.
tip: unless glass is tempered, you don’t want to expose it to prolonged periods of hot sun or changing temperatures.
This artwork would have been perfect for a clients powder room but the frame was busted up. Hopefully I’ll run across it at another store.
HomeGoods has started to sell more abstract art. This piece had lots of texture and looked more expensive than it was.
Decorative and patterned lampshades seem to be a trend and there were plenty the day I was shopping.
It’s always challenging to find small lamps that can work on a bathroom vanity or on the kitchen counter. HomeGoods has lots including this pierced ceramic lamp.
tip: don’t pass up a lamp you like because of the lampshade. Changing the shade is an easy and inexpensive fix.
My collection of teacups from Anthropologie is growing. But now I have a new source because I saw several Anthropologie inspired styles at HomeGoods for a lot less.
The pillow section looked like a tornado had gone through it so I didn’t spend much time looking . I did see this beautiful needlework lumbar pillow which would look great on a bed or sofa.
I follow lots of folks on Instagram so I know I’m not the only one spending time at HomeGoods.
Have you found any great items there lately?
