Lately at HomeSense


My office is right around the corner from HomeSense so I tend to pop in frequently since it's right there. They're constantly receiving fresh stock so there's always something new to see. I must have gone on a particularly good day last week because there was a greater abundance of amazing items than I usually see, so I thought I'd do another HomeSense Finds post.  

They had a lot of beautiful wood items, like the end table and cabinet shown in the first image above. After a few years of painted wood being in vogue, I've been craving stained wood pieces so it's nice to see them making an appearance again. In fact, I went back for these two beautiful acacia wood frames without even knowing what I'll put in them, I just couldn't stop thinking of them: 



Speaking of wood, I came across this little wooden crate on wheels. It would be perfect for storing magazines. 


I love that stone is everywhere right now. These marble boxes with capiz inlay were gorgeous and the round stone bowl would look great functioning as a tray on a coffee table, or on an entryway console for corralling keys, mail, etc. 



More boxes, these ones with a very interesting veined pattern in a bright emerald green. If you were looking for something like this in malachite but not having any luck, this is a nice alternative.  




These acrylic waterfall end tables were scattered everywhere throughout the store. They also had a few of the coffee tables, too. Waterfall tables can be expensive elsewhere but these ones were under $100. You really can't beat that price. And look at that orange vinyl tub chair - so cute! 



HomeSense Finds


If you haven't been to HomeSense in a while (HomeGoods for my American friends) then you need to get there ASAP. There is lots of goodness happening right now. My favourite finds were the Ralph Lauren Glen Plaid crystal tumblers and low ball glasses so I made sure to snatch up 8 of each. 



Speaking of crystal, HomeSense's lighting game is so on point right now, especially their selection of crystal table lamps. 



This blue and white ginger jar lamp is a dream! I wish I had a place for it! Sadly I don't, so can someone please buy it so I can live vicariously through you? I may just go back and buy it and store it for a future home, that's how much I love it. Except that it's probably already gone, amazing HomeSense finds like this don't stick around for very long. 



I really wanted to buy this floor lamp with brass-like finish - it's the exact shape and colour I'm looking for but unfortunately it wasn't very sturdy and swayed a lot. Still pretty, though! 



I love this masculine, leather tufted wing chair with nailhead trim detail and matching footstool. It makes me want to design a mahogany-panelled study or office for someone. 

I love that my office is just around the corner from a HomeSense, it's sometimes nice to take an afternoon coffee break, head on over and wander around and see what's new.
