Walmart Hometrends Collection: Would You Purchase?

March 16, 2010

Fine home décor from the Mart of Wal?

The news is out and so are the products.  Walmart has launched “Hometrends,” a new collection of home décor and accents.  Hometrends offers mix and match selections by room, with a leaning toward modern styling and more trendy materials, themes and colors.

Though the line is fashion-focused, the retailer in question is Walmart.  Thus, the price is  really the point.  Starting costs range from $11 for rugs and $39.96 for bedding sets to $35 for dinnerware sets and $3 for placemats.

Walmart.com offers an interactive room decorator tool, and while online pricing is set, word is that Walmart stores will honor competitor’s pricing on identical items.  So keep those Sunday circulars if you plan to check out Hometrends.
