To kick start my shopping bible at HomeSense, let's check out this beauty in a grey ash finish, with asian inspired feets and dynamite hardware. If anyone is looking for a well-constructed and amazingly stylish media console that can stand the test of time, this is it! For only $799, you can't go wrong with that price. All you need is a one of these smart systems and your PVR + DVD player will live happily ever after behind close doors.
Now if you like what you see but hope it is a bedside table instead, well today is your lucky day! I've found a pair of them in white washed ash. I am personally not a big fan of this finish but hey, nothing a trip to the sprayer can't fix. The polished chrome hardware on the side table has me craving for more and check out what I've found! This stool/cocktail table is perfect for any young ladies or adding a touch of glamour and feminine quality to a posh living room.
For a living/dining room project I'm currently working on (you will read more about it soon), I'm looking for a couple of statement arm chairs at the heads of the table. This faux bamboo number is well-priced and the seat upholstery is firmed. I'm not crazy about the metallic turquoise but again, it is an easy fix. For a sleek, contemporary statement, this black glossy beauty inspired by the iconic ghost chair by Philippe Starck clearly made the cut.
For the rest of the dining parties, how about this gorgeous upholstered chair in coral + white damask? To strike a modern dining experience, this nature inspired chair also mingos well with the great outdoor! Now isn't it perfect to pair this "red forest" with our black ghost chair for an ultra chic and low maintenance patio solution? I love how these two red chairs are similar in hue, equally vibrant & intense, and yet distinctively different in personality and design era.
A new condo project also has me paying attention to headboard and man, did you just see what I spotted? I have nothing more to say but $399 and perfectly sold (sadly not to me). Nancy (my girl at HomeSense) ... I thought you were supposed to call me when an incredible piece like this gets in store!
If you find the diamond tufting detail and the shape of the above headboard a little too feminine, well guys, check out this wing-back inspired headboard with oil rubbed bronze nailhead in textile velvet for only $299!! HomeSense is practically giving away these headboards for free I'm telling you! Just for your reference, yours truly had his headboard custom made for almost $900 + fabric some years ago.
A couple more jaw-dropping headboards that caught my eyes ,and man I wish I have a spare bedroom!
One of my must-checks at HomeSense is the rug section. You may not find what you are looking for all the time but when you do, you score BIG! Don't believe me? See for yourself! Mod black & white polka dot or a whimsical interpretation of a traditional rug, the choice is yours. As for myself, they are both coming home with me.
This chocolate brown embroidered rug with off-white bird & forest motif has my heart kipped a beat. The quality of this rug is exceptional, the detail on the embroidery is impeccable, and this 5x7 master piece is only $199!
Opting for a piece of furniture with load of personality and textile interest? Here is an amazing side table (just add a glass top) that is truly a conversation piece.
Speaking about reflective surfaces, this tall and narrow storage unit reminds me of South Beach ... so is this creamy white vase with the shell motif.
I know I don't talk about bedroom accessories much but the easiest way to update a bathroom is through accessories. You can imagine my reaction when I saw these soft, puffy towels in trendy pattern, bee embroidery, and polka dot towels Kate Spade. Amazing jumping off points for a bathroom makeover.
Since we are on the topic of crazy deals at HomeSense, check out these beautiful bowls and fine bone china plates by Prouna. The luxe purple box got my attention and so I did a quick google search. See that cute as a button deer candle box? The collection is called Leto and the gold you see there is actually 24kt gold! I also picked up these Japanese inspired plates for the dining room project I have been hinting all the way along. Can't wait to show you more!
On the note of new projects, check out some of the items I sourced at HomeSense as hints of what you will see soon enough here at DesignMaze.
