5 Great Finds at Georgetown’s New HomeGoods

The budget-friendly chain just opened its first store in the District.

Georgetown is flush with droolworthy design shops: Jonathan Adler, Design Within Reach, Contemporaria—the list goes on. But truth is, sometimes a decor budget is a bit more modest. Enter HomeGoods. Using the same off-price discount model behind its sister store, T.J.Maxx, the retailer sells fun, trendy furniture alongside cookware, dishes, linens, and accessories, all at ├╝ber-reasonable prices. We’ve never left without a cart full of goodies. The only downside? These stores are typically way out in the ’burbs, which makes bargain-hunting tough for urbanites. Until now, that is. After a long renovation, the former Georgetown Park Mall was transformed into a 50,000-square-foot combination T.J.Maxx/HomeGoods megastore, which officially opened for business on Sunday morning.

We went by for an early glimpse at the new digs last week just before the grand opening. Read on to see a handful of the stylish scores you can snag at the new store.

The organic-meets-modern fusion of knotted wood and glossy chrome makes this X-leg console table look much more expensive than its wallet-friendly price tag. Left, console table, $249.99, and stools, $79.99 each. Right, silver and rose gold metallic foil-finish throw pillows, $19.99 each.

Dreamlike horse photos have been popping up everywhere recently. Left, horse print, $149. Right, red coral lamp with black drum shade, $39.99.

This midcentury-esque wingback chair comes in this textured slate fabric and a lush light-gray velvet, too. Armchair, $299.99.

T.J.Maxx/HomeGoods. 3222 M St., NW. Open Monday through Saturday 9:30 to 9:30 and Sunday 11 to 8.
