Now that the kids are back to school, I had some time yesterday to check out the new Homesense store that just opened this week in East Hanover, New Jersey! Join me for a tour!
A Peek Inside a New Homesense Store
If you don’t know already, Homesense is part of the TJ Maxx/Homegoods company so I knew I was in for a treat!
New Homesense Store – Huge Lamp Department:
When I walked in, I was immediately drawn to the lamp section. They had so many beautiful ones on display!
As you can see, the section is HUGE! Not only do they carry table and floor lamps but they also have a gorgeous selection of chandeliers and pendants! Even though I don’t need any lamps right now, I was tempted to buy one…or two!
In the furniture section, they carry larger pieces that you don’t normally see in TJ Maxx or Homegoods – and more pieces. They had more of everything!
Of course, the store was really crowded so I had a hard time photographing the pieces without getting a bunch of people in the background. That’s why my photography is so bad…yeah that’s why…lol.
Homesense carries a large supply of dining chairs which they display all together. This is so helpful if you are looking for matching pieces. For some reason, I always seem to have bad luck in Homegoods. Inevitably, I will fall in love with one chair but then have to run around to different Homegoods locations to find the match. From what I saw in the new Homesense store, I shouldn’t have a problem!
Dishes and Accessories:
In this location, they also had a huge selection of dishes! I couldn’t think straight because of the crowds but I plan on coming back to dig through these shelves soon!
Just like Homegoods, Homesense has a section packed with all kinds of fun entertaining pieces.
I also stumbled upon a great book section with one of our favorite blogger books displayed up front!
Organization and Storage:
Their storage and basket department was loaded with all kinds of cute pieces, many different things than you would see in the regular Homegoods stores.
Homesense Rug Emporium:
Probably my favorite department was the rug section or “Rug Emporium” as they call it. What a variety with racks and racks of gorgeous rugs in several sizes…
For awhile, I have been searching for a new family room rug so I was drawn to the ones with the tans and grays. So pretty!
I loved the fun tribal rug which was so soft too!
It was nice to see big brands like this Karastan. I love the blues and greens in this rug!
And I found quite a few rugs in the Magnolia line. You just know these will sell fast. I also spotted other great brands like Safavieh too. The store really had so much to choose from!
I hope you enjoyed a peek inside the new Homesense store! Once the excitement wears off and the crowds die down a bit, I am going to head back to do some serious shopping! Speaking of excitement, see who we got to meet at another store opening!
