It’s my failsafe go-to store for unusual gems for the home and one of my ‘must-visits’ for quirky Christmas finds. HomeSense – the standalone home store from TK Maxx – sources one-off pieces, discounted furniture and homewares, and is one of my favourite shops for interior inspiration.
Frequent deliveries of homeware and gifts ‘for less’ arrive each day so you can always find something new and a little bit different. I recently popped into the Lakeside, Thurrock branch, for instance, and am coveting the following:
From country chic to urban cool, HomeSense’s secret lies with its savvy buyers, who travel the globe to find a range of unique branded homeware so you can revamp your space in your own inimitable style.The store operates an ‘off-price’ concept which offers quality and branded homeware for up to 60% less than the recommended retail price. These savings are passed on to customers through a combination of opportunistic buying, established relationships with manufacturers and simple, no-frills operations. With fresh deliveries every day, there are over 50,000 items to discover each time you visit a store – and there are 33 branches across the country. Why not check out the latest opening in Taplow, Buckinghamshire.
At Christmas, it comes into its own and is like an Aladdin’s Cave with its huge array of sparkling baubles, festive wreaths, sleds and figurines to bring the festive spirit to your home. You’ll find embellished reindeers, pint-sized penguins, delicate tea-light holders and statement tree-toppers. And don’t forget to dress your table with gorgeous crystal and crockery – a luxury look for less. What’s not to love?
