A Peek Inside a New Homesense Store!

Now that 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!
New Homesense store in New Jersey

If you don't know already, Homesense is part of the TJ Maxx/Homegoods company so I knew I was in for a treat yesterday!

Lamp section of Homesense

When I walked in, I was immediately drawn to the lamp section.  So many beautiful ones to choose from!

Lighting Department in Homesense store

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!

Furniture and Lighting in Homesense store

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!

Homesense store items

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

Huge dining chair section in Homesense

Homesense carries a large supply of dining chairs which they display all together.  So helpful if you are looking for matching pieces.  I always have bad luck in Homegoods because I will fall in love with one chair but then have to run around to different Homegoods locations to find the match.

Dishes in New Homesense store

There is also 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!

Entertaining section of Homesense

Just like Homegoods, this section is packed with all kinds of fun entertaining pieces.

Book section at Homesense

A great book section with one of our favorite blogger books displayed up front!

Storage and Baskets at Homesense

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.

Rug Emporium

The rug section or "Rug Emporium" as they call it, was probably my favorite!  There were racks and racks of gorgeous rugs in several sizes...

Rug shopping at Homesense

I have been searching for a new family room rug so I was drawn to the ones with the tans and grays.  So pretty!

Rug selection at Homesense
Loved the fun tribal rug - so soft too!

Karastan rug in Homesense store

It was nice to see big brands like this Karastan.  Love the blues and greens in this rug!

Magnolia Rug at Homesense

And I found quite a few in the Magnolia line.  I know these will sell fast.  I also saw other great brands like Safavieh too.  So much to choose from!

New Homesense Store in New Jersey

Overall, the store was fabulous!  Once the excitement wears off and the crowds die down a bit, I am going to head back to do some serious shopping!

I'd love for you to follow along so you don't miss a post!

  1. Oh I would definitely love this. Not one here in Arizona yet. Hopefully soon.

  2. Wow! This store is so much larger than any HomeGoods I've been to. Fun fun!

  3. If one does come to town, don't tell my hubby ;-) What a fabulous store!

  4. You lucky girl! Tulsa just got our Home Goods store this year. I'd love to have one of these too!

  5. I am SO envious! Boise has a TJ Maxx (Home Good's wannabe) that's like the outlet mall of Home Goods - really terrible. The only thing one gives up to live in lovely Idaho is decent shopping. Lucky you, Shelley. Enjoy!

  6. Shelley, how wonderful! I drive 60 miles for a Home Goods store...there is a TJ Max where I live!

  7. Holy Toledo, that is quite a store! We have Marshall's and Home Goods within four miles of my home in the little town of Avon and TJMaxx a few miles further down the road. I checked and there are no Homesense stores in the Indianapolis area. Hopefully it will be a matter of time.

  8. Looks like a fun place to shop!!

  9. I could spend hours in a store like this but my credit card would break! LOL:) Thanks for sharing with us at #overthemoon link party.

  10. Hi Shelley.. I went to our new store in Mass. last week and took pics for a post. OMG!!! I was in heaven! Hope you have a great week.

  11. That looks like a great store! I enjoyed taking the tour with you. I will have to look up their store online and see if any are planned in my area. I sure hope so! Looks like they have a lot of inventory. My Homegoods is always so crowded and picked over. It would be nice to have another store like this to choose from.

  12. Oh my! This looks like fun! It looks like more of everything. The rugs look amazing. I agree with you I don't often have good luck at Homegoods or TJ Maxx for furniture because they always have just one of everything! I hope we get one near us soon!!

  13. We've had HomeSense in Canada for quite awhile now which I equated to your HomeGoods in the US but the pics you've shown are quite a bit different than our Canadian least, any of the ones I've been to. Lots of good stuff! Thanks for sharing this.

  14. I love the new Home Sense too. I'm looking forward to going back when it's not so crowded. I went on opening day. What a zoo! I will be featuring this tonight at my Fall into Fall party. Please stop by and pick up an I've Been Featured button. Thanks.
