Home Decor, Off-Price Stores

I made a major move a few days ago, and I am now a bit consumed by the not-so-fun job of unpacking.  As I remove things from boxes, I am beginning to notice a trend.  I have purchased most of my favorite chic and unique home decor items at discount stores like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Home Goods.

Here are a few of those discount store purchases in rooms that are almost complete.

Living Room:

Accent chairs can be so expensive.  I found these two super chic leather chairs in TJ Maxx for $79.99.  The table at the center is from Marshalls ($19.99) and it is quite reminiscent of a very popular and very expensive style at West Elm.

Metal wall hanging via Marshalls ($19.99).
I own 4 of these, each with a different

to acquire them.

In addition to the red bamboo vase above, I have a few other vases from Marshalls and TJ Maxx.  Here is a favorite that is usually on the dining table.

    I need to start visiting the home decor section at these stores! WOW!! You found some great pieces, and you must have a pretty big place! At just 950 SF, I don't need a lot more of furniture, but accent vases and additional paintings would be nice! Thank you for showing us your home!

    Lovely! And I loved all of your NYC discount shopping posts too! I am originally from NJ and I swear I would KILL someone for a Loehman's or a Daffy's right about now!

    Love the pieces. For home decor I'm strictly an off-price shopper searching for great pieces.

    I love everything I saw most especially the purple comfy set. Very inviting to take a rest. Gotta buy something like that for me.
