Step into style at Homesse, Geelong’s new haven of homewares and furniture 

Words by Staff Writer

Geelong, known for its coastal charm, is now home to a design haven that's set to redefine your living spaces. 

Meet Homesse, a curated blend of contemporary furniture, homewares, and an art gallery, making waves at 512 Latrobe Boulevard, Newtown. Pronounced “Home-ess,” this boutique is a fusion of premium-quality designs, local artistry, and a dash of antique allure.

Walking through the 19th-century French doors, visitors enter a world where design takes centre stage. Homesse is not just a furniture store; it’s an immersive experience that seamlessly blends modern aesthetics with timeless treasures. The space, a brainchild of Kerleys Auctions & Pegasus Antiques, is the new gem in Geelong’s shopping scene.

Founded by Geelong locals, Alex and Joel, Homesse is a result of extensive travels to find the finest furniture and homeware artisans worldwide. The journey led the team to Greater Java, Indonesia, where they discovered the hospitable and talented cultures that now influence their designs.
