I’ll admit, I’ve never really been one to read blog posts with the bloggers favourite current homewares. Believe it or not, I have never been a serial buyer of homeware items, even though it would seem my house was a shrine to my local High Street homeware stores.
I’ve always preferred going to charity shops to see if I could find thrifty items that reflected the latest trends in homewares (I was buying ALL the rattan things before rattan became ubiquitous) and upcycle wherever I could. One of my favourite upcycles was a £60 dresser from a charity shop when I couldn’t find a dresser that I liked or they were far too expensive. I wrote about the upcycle here.
However, as I am now constantly online looking for inspiration for current trends or how to decorate our new house, I’ve realised how much I love looking for bargains and beautiful things.
I’ve realised though, over the last few years, that not everyone has the time to trawl through all the online websites for new homewares, trying to find that perfect item to sit on their new sideboard or rug to throw out in the garden.
Also, some people find it a little overwhelming and prefer to be inspired through Instagram or blog posts. I get inundated with messages asking where I buy a lot of my homewares from so I thought I’d put a quick little blog post together with 10 items from 5 of my favourite Homeware stores!
Probably one of my favourite stores of all, for clothes and for homewares, has to be H&M. Our local one has 4 floors and not one, but 3 stores which just goes to show how popular they are.
A Scandi paradise, it’s probably one of the first places I go to when I’m looking for new trends or inspiration for my mood boards.
It would seem that getting items for your garden, like cushions and rugs are as rare as hen’s teeth at the moment so I tried to see what was still available on all sites. Dunelm still has a good deal in but they’re going like hot potatoes! Blink and you’ll miss it.
Asda just shouts FUN! I’ve always been a huge fan of Asda Living and have often found some real bargains in store and online. If I see something I really like but it is a little out of my price range, I have often been able to find something for a fraction of the price at Asda.
La Redoute Homewares
To me, La Redoute has always been a dream for the shopper who loves biophilic design. Think rattan, wicker and bamboo, seagrass woven baskets and lots of natural elements.
TK Maxx Homewares
And finally, TK Maxx, the Mothership of HomeSense (and because HomeSense do not have an online shop, TK Maxx have to be included. Why HomeSense, WHYYYYY?)
I’ll have to admit, I much prefer to browse the stores of TK Maxx and HomeSense as some real bargains are to be found, but for now I will show what I found online.
I hope you found something you like. With this crazy winter weather we are getting in May, I think we could all do with some more cushions and throws in our lives!
