the real deal at homegoods


I always think of HomeGoods for the little finishing touches—accessories, mirrors, bedding, pillows maybe. But check out the incredible rug my clients snatched up. They are so smart. This was the color scheme we were looking at, and the traditional style I was going for. I'd picked out samples of new rugs for them, but none were this perfect. And none, to be honest, were this well-made. A new high-end rug was just not in the budget.


But this Safavieh hand-knotted rug, which originally retailed for $8000, was marked down to $3000, then $1500, and then finally clearanced at $995. My clients grabbed it. I'm so glad they were the lucky ones! So the lesson is look deep at HomeGoods and look for the big stuff—rugs, furniture. You might get lucky someday.


By the way, remember these chairs? Yup, there was no budget alternative necessary here. My clients loved them, and we ordered them. They're going to live with the new rug—yippee! I can't wait to see this room come together. Furniture should start arriving any week now.

Well done, good for them. It's a beautiful rug. HomeGoods is a favorite of mine for sure. We don't have one in my area but there is a store just under an hour from where we live so I make day trips to the area fairly often. Love their selection of lamps.

Home Goods is so great and that rug is awesome. I've seen a few small rugs and runners recently that I'd love to use in a room but didn't have the need - the color stories that could have been done with some of these were awesome. Hope you're feeling better!

Hi Casey, that rug is an example of treasure hunting at its best. We're a bit jealous - at $995 it was a steal. Thanks for the great shout out. Your friends at HomeGoods

love the colors in the rug! I've found that Overstock is another great place to rug shop. They have quality wool rugs at really affordable prices.

I hit up Homegoods for my rugs all the time, it's the first place that I check. That was a great find.

Man o man is that room going to look great when you all are finished with it. Really great deal on the rug. Makes me wish we had a Homegoods here.
