So you know last week I wrote about HomeSense coming to Taplow, well on Wednesday evening I was invited to a sneak preview of the store. I was really excited, as I’d never been to a HomeSense store before.
The store was officially open to the public on the Thursday, so when I got there, the windows were covered up and the doors were shut. I was like, eek, how do I get in? I phoned my PR contact’s mobile and then the doors magically opened! They greeted me with drinks and nibbles, while I was kind of awestruck by the store – it’s massive! A real treasure trove of home stuff – quirky furniture, chairs, mirrors, wall decor, clocks – and that was just downstairs. There’s an upstairs too with the children’s, kitchen, dining and bedroom departments.
This post is going to be loads of photos, as I just liked EVERYTHING and couldn’t narrow it down! Shall we call it my grand tour of HomeSense Taplow, hey? 🙂 I’ll start off with the kid’s furniture upstairs. I fell in love with these velvet Chesterfield sofas for children – so so cute. From what I remember, the 2-seater was around £200, and the single armchairs £70.
And now for some grown-up furniture, this blue chest of drawers is gorgeous.
I thought the chair below was quite unique, almost like a chair you see at the dentist’s.
This fox cushion at £24.99 – I love!
Here’s the whole display, that warm, rustic look. Definitely makes me think of autumn.
Oh I must tell you about the mirrors! They had HUGE ornate mirrors, you know the sort you normally see for around £200 – well here the most expensive mirror was £69.99 – bargain! I am definitely considering one of these, as mirrors are great way to bring light into a room and make it seem bigger.
These letter shelves are so cool. They had a great range of different styled letters if you wanted to spell out something on your wall.
I love unique coat rack hooks, and there was so many to choose from!
More cool wall decor, I particularly like this ‘Exit’ sign. Would look cool in the corridor pointing to the front door!
Some more great wall storage, I think is perfect for a hallway, with the mirror to brighten and enlarge the corridor and little drawers for keys and nik naks.
Wall storage shaped as a whale!
Clocks galore! This is seriously the coolest wall display I’ve seen in a shop!
I’ve got a thing for furniture with wooden legs like this, gives it a vintage look.
Metallic furniture seems to be making it’s way into the mainstream, it’s quite masculine so I can see this in a teen boy’s bedroom.
This clock shaped as a watch is an oversized one. I love giant clocks, especially with my bad eyesight, to be able to read the time without squinting gets a thumbs up from me!
This unique bench caught my eye! It looks like an upcycled piece of furniture, really different from the norm.
For the crafty readers out there, they have a crafts section, with sewing boxes, ribbons, storage boxes, art materials, notebooks. I was in this aisle for a while.
Canvas art – there was a great selection, and they’ve gone for a vintage/retro look with the pieces they’ve chosen. If you’re into Marvel Superheroes, you’ll like this section.
This was my favourite piece from their canvases – maybe Tyler’s train obsession is rubbing off on me!
So that is my tour of the store for you – now can you see why I was excited?! And I did buy something that day, well some very useful things, but I’ll share that with you another day.
What do you think? What’s your favourite piece from my photos?
P.S. If you liked what you see, keep an eye out for a future post on my blog where I will be giving readers the chance to win a £100 HomeSense giftcard! Watch this space 🙂

Hadn’t heard of Home Sense before! Loving the little bits and bobs you can get – that fox cushion would look perfect in my bedroom x
Me too! But I’m go glad I’ve discovered them now. Yes that fox cushion is gorgeous, it really caught my eye! xx
Oh my goodness!! HomeSense looks amazing! I’ve heard it mentioned on youtube a few times but never actually seen in store. That blue sofa is SO pretty! And LOVE the fox cushion. Also love the metallic furniture and the wall storage, some really fab, unique ideas there. HomeSense is my kind of place, thank you for sharing!
I’m glad I got to show you the store – it’s amazing! Sounds like you need a store near you! xx
That store looks amazing! I don’t think we have a Homesense store in Ireland, really wishing we had because I love the metallic look pieces.
Ahhh hope they come to Ireland soon, you would love it! xx
This place looks amazing! I love the look of that chair! I think it’s more of an old fashioned Barber’s Chair, though. lovely post, Home Sense definitely looks like my kind of shop
Ah a barber’s chair! That makes so much more sense than a dentist’s chair haha! Love it though! xx
It’s the endless screenings of Sweeney Todd haha. It’s really cool.
It looks fantastic! I am so in love with the fox cushion. love Homesense x
Me too, I so want that cushion! xx
I haven’t heard of this store before but am so glad you have shown it to us allx really love their soft furnishing and the Fox pillow is seriously cute!xx
I was the same, hadn’t heard of them before, but now I’m glad I found them – so much cool stuff! Hope there’s a store near you! xx
We’ve just had a homesense open up near us as well. Didn’t see that beautiful blue chest of drawers, will have to look again!
Ahhh lucky you, bet you’ll be in there loads! That chest of drawers really is beautiful – I want it! xx
I’ve never heard of homesense, but I *love* the kids furniture – omg so cute! Everything looks really lovely, it’s probably best I haven’t heard of it, if I had one near me I’d probably end up buying everything!

Oh I know, I really love the kid’s furniture! I wish I had a playroom to put them in! Haha, who knows, maybe you’ll get one near you and you’ll go spending crazy! xx
Ah a shame this place is in the UK. But then again maybe it’s a good think that is isn’t near me. Loving the amount of lovely stuff you can get there. I would be poor after it. I am trying to redecorate our house now that we are not moving house and I would certainly find a lot there to add.
Haha, I think I’m going to be poor now, I want to buy everything! Who knows, they might open near you one day. Good luck with the redecorating! xx
Oh WOW! A shiny new Homesense! I love these stores, they have the most amazing ‘stuff!’ Kaz x
Haha, that’s the word ‘stuff’! And I want ALL of it! xx
How exciting – and I just love that fox cushion 🙂 #homeetc
Oh I know, isn’t it the cutest cushion?! xx
Looks fab, I think my closest store is Cambridge, which is still about an hour away from me, I might have to check it out though. x
Ooh, you might have to take a daytrip to Cambridge then! 😉 x
I am with you – I adore HomeSense and am so happy we have near us too!!!! Love the photograph of all the clocks! We have just bought an armchair from there and we couldn’t decide – we took ages as you get lost in there browsing! Great post and enjoy many more trips there 🙂 Thanks for sharing 🙂 Much appreciated. Jess x #HomeEtc
I’m glad you have one near you too – it’s a real treasure trove! I can’t wait to go back! xx
I really wish we had a HomeSense near us, but I’m going to visit the Bristol one soon – you have certainly whetted my appetite, this one looks amazing! #HomeEtc
Yay you’re going to one, you can write up a shopping list from my pictures haha! xx
Wow what a lot of gorgeousness!! I especially love the letter shelves and grey furniture. Makes me want to go and check out my local store! Becky x #HomeEtc
Oh yes I loved those letter shelves, I’m seriously considering buying them! xx
